Looking for help with my sIstem, it will power up but wont do a post test, replace memory and hard disk still do the same. I start to think I have a video problem but want it to check with some folks first.

Well assuming that this worked previously

And is no longer working now and has a AsRock M'Board of some description in it and that nothing else dramatic has happened to a sealed case, like a Local Lighting Strike.

If the unit just stopped working and was previously working properly I would be looking at a failed Power Supply as being the most obvious. Don't think that the PS works because Fans spin or LED's light this just proves that one circuit inside the Power Supply is producing voltage and in no way implies that it has sufficient current. 12 V DC at a few Milliamperes will spin Fans quite fast and light LED's but there will be no where near enough current to start a HDD.

Even if all of the 12 V DC Circuits are working correctly there are still the 1.3 & 5 V DC Rails to look at.

The easiest way to proceed when a closed case stops working is to open it clean out the dust and other gunk that has formed inside it then try to start. If it still doesn't work replace the PS with a Known Good one and test again. If it still will not POST you need to look at the M'Board & or CPU. If you have a AMD CPU consider both the M'Board and CPU to be destroyed but if you have a Intel CPU the best guess is that the M'Board has failed.
