SOURCE: Keys dont work.alternative way to change brightness?

Yes you can go into your display properties and look in the settings tab and look for advanced click that and open color tab or the overlay tab, color tab should get your brightness turned up, And if you can't see you can go into your bios and adjust your brightness from there and get it back to where you can see it if you can't write me back here so we can try another method. Ok I hope that helps you out somewhat, Oh yeah you can also hook up an external key board into your usb connections and you should be able to work everything from that too.

SOURCE: Cursor Will Not Stay Put

Try uninstalling the drivers from the device manager, then do a hardware search. It will automatically find the touch pad and reinstall the drivers. If this doesn't work, then check the connector under the keyboard. Disconnect it and reconnect it, they sometimes work loose. If these don't correct the problem, then you have a faulty touch pad and you'll have to replace it.

SOURCE: keyboard trouble

you need to reload that software that came with the keyboard. Uninstall the keyboard from device manager :- Control Panel>system>device manager. Then reload the software for the keyboard, which should also have the drivers. If you do not have the software, let me know the make and model of the keyboard and I will see what I can do.

Hope this helps

SOURCE: Medion MD 96290 how do i remove the laptop keyboard

Follow the previous advice (very accurate).

The keyboard has sticky pads on the bottom of it. This makes it a little bit difficult to remove.

The keyboard connection has a little slider on the motherboard slip (don't pull out completly) this out very gently this helps with removing the keyboard cable and inserting the new one.

The keyboard code for the MD9620 is MP-03266GB-442A.

I tried Medion and they wanted £105 plus parts, they would not sell me just the keyboard.

John @ says he can get me one within about a week so I've ordered one.

Given the part number a Toshiba Equium L20 keyboard may work (looks very similar - slightly different key markings - part number for this is MP-03266GB-920).

If you bust the plastic facia, there are a few people selling this on ebay (may help with removing having a look)

I would suggest putting a finger nail between the silver and black plastic at the back of the laptop hinge. Then use a wide'ish but thin flat screw-driver to lift both sides. You will need to lift the plastic along the top of the keyboard as well. Do this carefully. There are however quite a number of catches. The extreme left and right are easier to lift out if you have lossened all the other catches off then pull gently away from the keyboard at a shallow angle as the catches for these sides sit under the silver section.

NOTE: Make sure you have removed the battery and power cord before you start doing any of this as the motherboard is likly to have voltage if you don't. Also beware of static.

Laptop touchpad not working

Dear John,

Although you did not mention your laptop model, Medion laptops use a combination of the 'Fn' key with one of the function keys on the top part of your keyboard to enable/disable the touchpad, that can be F3 or F6 or F8. So, try pressing the 'Fn' key and, while keeping it pressed, press also the F3 key and release them. Check if the touchpad now works. If it does not, try the same operation with 'Fn' plus the F6 keys or 'Fn with the F8 keys.

If none of these combinations works for you, maybe you will need to download and re-install the driver for your touchpad, from the Medion web site. go to site, select your country or region and then look for the drivers page for your laptop model. Select the driver for the touchpad offered there, download and install it in your machine.

Hope this helps!

Dell latitude d820. All of the arrow keys except for the down arrow key are no longer function which is not a huge problem except now i can no longer control thedisplay brightness. Is there a way i can...

Hi, you might want to blow out the keyboard with some canned air. Dust can cause contact problems. One way would require an external keyboard. Hook up the keyboard, boot up the computer and go into system set up. When the Dell screen comes up it will show what key to push. I think it's F2. Scroll through the BIOS until you get to display settings and set the brightness. When done push F10 and save your settings. The display brightness will be set.

If the keyboard doesn't have a Fn key often the Scroll Lock key is used, try Scr Lk + Down arrow to dim the display.
The manual indicates and Fn Key to the right of the Left Alt Key but that doesn't mean you have that keyboard eitther

My wireless wont turn on on medion akoya E5211 ... i need to turn on my wireless connection switch and dont know how or where it is

I had the same problem so I rang Medion & they told me go to the Medion website and download "Launch Manager" from your driver page. It's a program that turns on all of the Fn keys. Thus making the wireless (Fn+F1) work as well as the brightness (Fn+F8 or F9).
This is the only way to get it to work

Laptop brightness

The physical control is found by holding the 'fn' key in lower left and pressing a function key. Which function key...look across the top row of 'f#' keys for one that has a little sun shape and an up arrow. Press the 'fn' key and this function key to up the brightness.

Software control can be found by going into the Control Panel and selecting Power Management. Here you can define how bright (or dim) your computer is in different states (plugged into power or on battery). You can also define how the computer behaves when left inactive for certain amount of time and how the power button works when pressed while computer is on.

For more info, use your Windows help feature or your Medion user's guide. They should be able to tell you how to control brightness.

Fn birghtness key not working

If the "fn" key works with other "fn" command buttons it may be the drivers. Your machine came with a CD of drivers. I would visit Dell's Support website, plug in your "Service Tag" number (found on a label on your machine) and download the latest if your CD is missing. Re-install these drivers. Look into the "Dell Quickset Utility."

Medion laptop screen is dark

Not sure if your laptop has this button but try holding the "fn" key and the ▲(up arrow key) together (keep tapping on the up arrow key as you hold the "fn" key). Also, your laptop might have a key that has a sun symbol with an up arrow symbol as well. If so, hold "fn" key and tap the key with the sun& ▲arrow symbol. Hope this help.
