If you or a friend have a removal hard drive, usb or firewire, I suggest that you plug it into a usb port and see if the computer recognises it and if it functions. First you need to make sure that you are sure it is the drive. Usually it will have been making some clicking noise or sounding like it keeps trying to boot up, but never does. Although it is rare for a drive to not show symtoms prior to going down altogether, anything is possible. If you are able to see anything at all on the drive, try clicking on my computer and properties, if you can get to the system or even the Drive itself, you can then rt click and hit properties again to look at the tool menu. If you are sure the drive is gone, look at www.pricewatch.com, and get realtime prices from hundreds of stores. Installing is a bit difficult if you have never done it before. Desktops are easier, you should have someone with at least basic computer skills install it for you. It's not something I would reccomend without some experience.

Back up what you can and buy a replacement. More info is needed if you want to know which one will fit.

You need to get the DC socket replaced, or the original one resoldered. Your power supply may be broken, but it is more likely that it is the socket. Check the cable on the power supply for any breaks or floppiness at the joints. (an indication of a broken core)

Do you sell a downlaodable file for system restore for a medion computer running XP home edition?


No . This is only an answer site to my knoledge.
PC Recovery and Piracy abstand_10423.gif abstand_10383.gif MEDION strongly supports efforts within the software industry to combat piracy, as it helps ensure that customers may confidently buy legal software.
When you acquired your new MEDION PC, MEDION provided you with an option that can be used if you need to recover the genuine Microsoft® operating system that has been preinstalled on your machine.


All of the recovery solutions will address the extremely rare instances of failure due to operating system file corruption or modification or hardware failure. In no way do these options limit your ability to add or remove new hardware and software to your PC, or limit your ability to make a backup copy of the operating system.

The recovery media options that MEDION provides for our variety of products are:

CD Media − which are often called "recovery CDs". This is a CD or DVD clearly marked with the PC Manufacturer's brand that can only be used on the PC you purchased. The media will be included as part of the materials you received at the time of purchase and will include all files necessary to restore the operating system on the PC.

Hard Drive-based Recovery System − Recovery files are placed on a separate partition of the hard drive that can be accessed if system recovery is needed. No CDs are needed and in most cases the PC can "heal" itself.

No Media − the PC does not include a recovery solution. In the event of a recovery situation, please contact the PC Manufacturer.

All MEDION computers that are preinstalled with a genuine Microsoft Windows operating system will have a Certificate of Authenticity attached to the PC chassis.For more details please click here.

If you have questions about the systems recovery option that is available with you machine, please contact: MEDION UK
