    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!

Two choices:

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.
