Question about Medion M3 Director 5100 PC Desktop
The Medion monitor just doesn't want to come up. The PC is ok, I could attach a different monitor to it and everything is good. The peculiar with the monitor is that it got into this state progressively. It started having its own mind months ago. Initially, it was late showing live screen for a few minutes after power-up, then the delay grew to hours and right now it is ever dark. Its blue power LED blinks incessantly. I have a GEForce PCX 5300 card, I've just downloaded/installed the driver recommended by Medion website. Based on advice I found on this forum I tried to boot up in Safe mode. It didn't help... The monitor drives power through a transformer, if that's bad then I wouldn;t get the blinking LED, or...? It's a nice 19" monitor, I'd like to get some help before I toss it into my basement. That'd be a shame... Thanks for any help I can get Elizabeth
Mine has nothing to do with drivers. in fact I disconnected from the computer and it still blinks. I think I know how to fix it... We all should take our "fancy" Medion 7319's and fix it with the "HAMMERS" and NEVER EVER buy this ****........
I have a small business, and I have 15 computers. 10 of them are Sony SDM-HX93, and the other 5 are this stupid Medions. Guess what? All 5 of them are giving us problems all the time....

Mines the same.
apparently its a common problem with the capacitors
as they dont hold a charge.

I think it's a problem with the MD7319 line, mine did the same thing and crapped out. The problem is most likely the inverter or backlight, since it's just blinking I was guessing the inverter. The good news is that a new inverter is about $90... the bad news is that a new inverter is about $90. Whereas a replacement isn't much more.

I see you've downloaded the video card driver, but how about the driver for the monitor? It's a long long shot, but I shall refer you to http://www.monitor-drivers.com/ It's worth a shot, afterall I hate seeing parts thrown in the basement. Sadly your problem sounds far worse than a driver problem (which is probably plug and play anyway). It sounds to me like a monitor on it's last leg. Severe problems that happen gradually like you described point to something beginning to fail. First it takes forever to start up, then later you have to turn it off and on again real fast to get it to initialize, then finally it just craps out.

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
Test the leads that attach to your ((hard drive from the motherboard)) or replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your ((motherboard to hard drive))
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this helps
