Re: fitting new screen medion mim 2120 laptop
I could not find a breakdown for you laptop. But from a picture I saw on the web, I could tell you that it is probably the same as most laptop. First, there are screws under the round inserts. You need to pry those up and stick the aside ,in order to put them back when you finish.
Then remove the screws, usually 4 on each corner of the screen. Some laptops have 2 screws on top of the screen near the latch.
Then you need to pry the front bezel off the screen. You can use a small straight screw driver. Carefully (as not to scratch the case) insert the screw driver and pry the bezel away from the back casing of the LCD.
Once you have the bezel off you will see the screws that hold the actual LCD screen in, remove them and lift the LCD out. You will have to un-hook the cable from the System board to get the screen completely out. Then install the new screen. Please remember to rate all users who assist you for free :)

I think its the whole motherboard to get the card because you cannot buy them.
An if they can be sourced would be talking about 150 or 200 an with fitting about 240 so not really worth it sell it as spares unless u can get a faulty 1 off ebay with broken screen or something like that
Your best bet is to hope it goes up in flames then you can claim off your insurance, the problem can't be fixed.
I have the same machine but with mine it got hot and the graphics processor has burnt out, it seems to be common with this model.
I can't even connect to an external monitor as everything to do with the VGA is fried and Medion support are useless.
I'll never buy a Medion again even though my previous two going back 8 years still work if somewhat slow.
Could be three things causing this. First, the DC jack soldered on the motherboard could be loose. Over time the solder will crack loose. Most likely this is the problem. Second, the AC adapter could be going bad. Finally, the battery could be going bad. Each of these items should be checked.
it sounds like there is a short on your motherboard.your graphics card might be bad.or lcd screen.when you hook up a external monitor do you wait till everything is booted.wait 5 min then hook up the crt monitor.hold down fn then the button with the monitors.if none of this works then your graphics card is going bad.if it keeps restarting then there is a chipset problem or a short.best bet is to get a new laptop.save the harddrive and the ram,cd player,battery.you can sell these or buy the same type of laptop.and use these parts.
First i reccomend checking the power cable and seeing if there are no short circuits or breaks in the circuit. - to do this unscrew the end of the power cable - this part wares out often and costs about 50 cents to replace.
hi..go and try to find the (Control Panel) then double click the icon of name is (Network Connections) then find the wireless LAN connection..if you have wireless connection u need configuration..if not no have wireless connection you need re-install the LAN card driver..Thanks and good luck..^_^
1. It can be a screw loose inside the unit shorting something out. 2. The AC Port is damaged and needs to be re soldered. 3. Bad motherboard.
I've seen this be a bad motherboard more than not, however it has been the other 2 options from time to time. Most likely need to take it apart and you can see if it's the first 2 and if not than your board is bad.
my sugestion is to leave laptop unpluged from wall and removed battery and leave to cool for 3 days and then check on the fourth day replace battery. and reboot laptop. if problem accures take to be repaired, as the hard disc may have over heated plus comntatcs for hard disc and motherboard this is the only help I can give I leave mine on for 5 -6 days somtimes then turn the thing off to cool down the other addvice is if it works get it a laptop cooler which it sits on and keeps it cool.
best of luck on the laptop
