    MEDION MODEL MIM 2310 Driver

  • feanixmaiden Jan 12, 2009

    my laptop is also a medion mim 2310. My problem however is that everytime i switch it on it stays on but the second i put on word powerpoint, internet or any program it freezes and dies. Now it wont switch on at all without power supply. Ive tried anti virus, reformatting, i even sent it to a menders six times. I think this brand is made to malfunction if im honest. Medion are the worst in laptop manufacturers as ive found out they are going out of business. which means 400 quid wasted on my part....

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.

    It is possible to find places who do motherboard repair which would be cheaper than buying a new motherboard and most likely cheaper than a new laptop. It really depends on how old it is to determine if the value is there. Just do a google search for laptop motherboard repair and you should be able to find some places that do so, I wouldn't pay more than $350 for MOBO repair. Also, since it is close to the big christmas shopping day you can find new laptops for super cheap at retailers, though you might have to get up early and camp in line to get one, good way to get a new cheap laptop!

My Medion MIM 2300 Notebook PC MD 96648 is

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.

Firstly you will need to have all the drivers you need for whichever operating system you are using and copy them to CD. Download from Now you need your windows CD start laptop with cd in and you'll get a message saying press any key to boot from CD/DVD. Now just follow instructions to format and reinstall operating system. Now in stall all your drivers and laptop should be working like brand new

Medion MIM 2310 Monitor not working

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 bet is to get a new the harddrive and the ram,cd player, can sell these or buy the same type of laptop.and use these parts.

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.

Its not good idea to but your computer on fire, but i hope you didn't use real fire ;)
Sounds like some of your buttons are stuck on keyboard and need some cleaning.
