Question about Medion Computers & Internet

2 Answers

I'm trying to locate my video card inside my PC. I have a Medion 7309c Model. Whenever I power my system unit on it goes through the boot process and then goes to a blank screen, so i believe that my video card needs to be replace. If you could just help me out in locating where inside the PC it might be that would be great. Thank You, Angelo

This is probably manual for your motherboard go to page 4, find AGP slot that should be your graphic card location some board have onboard graphic, if you will be buying a new card make sure to buy AGP not PCI-E

    64MB NVIDIA GeForce4 MX440 8x AGP Graphics Card
    according to spec this is your video card (you don't have onboard card so if the card is broken you will be able to replace it), as merliv said it's probably the driver, boot in to safe mode go to device manager (click run and type devmgmt.msc and enter)and uninstall video card driver (expand display adapter,choose your video card and uninstall driver) , go to nvidia site and find the right driver, save it and install

Most home user PC's of the last while now have onboard video cards so you would need a new motherboard if the video card were bad. Good news it it's likely that the system's drivers just failed. If you boot to safe mode with networking support you know it's just drivers. When booting with networking support you can find a new driver for your video card or even simply remove the video card from the device manager and reboot. Sometimes the latter works, as just a single file was corrupt and needed to be recopied. If this doesn't work you can start looking at the RAM (since thats technically your video memory). It can be as simple as a bad connection so you can just blow the slots out w/ an air compressor (canned air is too weak) and reseat the RAM. Otherwise test your RAM in someone else's system or get some RAM and try booting. Last of course is the motherboard which hopefully isn't the case for you.

Medion MD 96340 Video Driver not working


Hmm..Can you please run a "dxdiag" & paste the output here? You need to enable the hardware acceleration which means that the processing will be done in the video card (GPU) as well as in CPU. It speeds up the processing.

After power was of for some time, I cant start the computer it only say power on in the display and fans are running but not hard disk My pc is a Medion MD 8800 I have been told it is something about...


Make sure the video cable is not loose at the display and the PC. Try connecting a known working display. Try booting in Safe Mode, if that works, shut down and boot normally. It is possible that the memory modules are loose. It is also possible that the on board video card is defective. Good luck. I hope this helps. Have a good day.

Have brought a wireless card to go inside the laptop. Just not sure where it goes inside! There is a power supply cable and a long slot, but this is a tiny card and is far smaller than the slot, can it...


Must admit I am not familiar with this brand and a bit of googling suggests that this model already has built in wireless. However, some forum postings suggested that it in fact doesn't and that the required mini wireless card (which may be what you have bought) connects to the mainboard via a removable cover on the underside of the laptop.

Never come across that before - I have always had PCMCIA wireless cards which are about the size of a fat credit card, and fit in the slot I think you are describing. Sorry, not much to go on. I suggest that you ask Medion Support:

Medion desktop does not boot up, screen blank.


Had same sounding problem with a Medion PC myself. I don't know the cause exactly but the fix I have is this:
Switch off PC, switch off PSU and unplug the power cable from the PC. Then press the power button on your PC. You may see lights and fans start up for just a brief second. This is because there was still charge in the PSU's capacitors which we needed to clear out.

You can now plug the power cable back in, switch on the PSU and turn your PC on.

(I realise this is too late for the original poster's uses but others may find it useful when searching for a problem!)

PC keeps freezing on boot up


Let's narrow the problem down a bit. The biggest clue will be "where" it hangs in the boot process.

1) During (or before) the POST (power on self test).
This would signify that you have a hardware issue. Often, the system will beep at you, and you can decipher those beeps to figure out the problem. Some things that will cause a freeze here are your video card, RAM, the CPU, or even a fan (especially the CPU fan).

a) Video - if you are seeing anything on your monitor, it probably isn't video. If not, replace the video card (if using the onboard video, add an outboard card. If using an outboard card already, then swap it out with another one, boot, and see what happens.

b) RAM - swapping out chips is the only way to test it, unfortunately.

c) CPU Fan - Eyeball it and see if it is spinning. A fan failure will instigate an immediate shutdown, to prevent the CPU from burning up.

d) CPU - Another tough one. The only real solution is to replace it with another one, and see if the system boots.

If it seems to be none of the above, it may be the motherboard itself that has an issue. Once you try all of the above, you can be more certain that it is indeed a bad board.

2) During Windows startup.
This would mean you have a Windows problem. Often, a new driver or some new piece of software can alter things enough to cause a hang. Attempt a boot in safe mode (which loads only default drivers), or even restore the OS to an earlier point. If you get a BSOD (blue screen of death), you'll want to look for the error code on the page, as it will at least give you a clue as to where the problem is. Another option is to boot from the Win Install CD, and effect a Windows repair. This will fix an awful lot of problems.

Cheers
Nick

I am trying to fix a power problem on a medion laptop. When you press the power button, the power led lights up but nothing else happen. The laptop does not start. Any help.


Hi,

When you turn on the system and NO BEEP sound it could be a problem with the system board that fails initialize and boot your system to the operating system. If you hear a beeping sound, you may need to reseat the memory card of your system.

Keep me posted.

Thanks.

How do i fit a new graphics card to my medion pc mt7


Adding a graphics card can be complicated. It is best that you research how to do so on Google thoroughly before attempting to get a new card. Your computers power supply *must* be sufficient to support the card or you might blow up your PC. Check out this youtube video for some visual help.

http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=BopjXneo8e4




Now I'm not sure about a Medion PC mt7 for GFX cards. Check you're computer's specifications and see if it has any slots for a GFX card. There are 3 types today: PCI, AGP and PCI-Express.

Make sure you're computer has one of these slots, and check to see if you're graphics card matches the slot inside you're computer.

The video should help you out.
