    Take battery off/out, turn computer off and take power addapter out/off. Now, press off/on button for 60 seconds. Turn on, as ussuall . If still doesn's work, contact Medion customer service at medionusa com or call toll free # 24/7 on this web site. Your motherboard or HD is damaged and it is going to be fixed if you still have warranty.

Last think you can try to do is recovery disk, but it is going to put your pc on manufactory settting, if you lucky and HD or motherboard is not damaged.

First try to connect a monitor to the laptop and see how it works with that.
If it's still nothing than try to get the hard drive out, last time I had same thing with a HP laptop, HDD was dead and it didn't even turn on till it was in it.
You can get the HDD out by removing the small panel at the back of the laptop.
Either way you'll know what's wrong if any of my ideas going to give you some progress.
Or if it's still a no go than maybe another expert can give you some good ideas.

My medion akoya MD 96970 laptop screen displays multiple screens that tile down the page. its shows about 8 screens that have lines running through them. i have tried system restore and a disk error scan,...

well, i have to upset you. if your medion laptop shows you six screens instead of one and each one of them is somehow not clear enough it means your graphic processor is down, if your laptop is still on warranty send it to get your mainboard replaced with a new one, with an newer graphic processor installed. I acctually work as an service engineer for medion and in this model it is a common problem, every gpu is broken from the beginning and it is only a matter of time until it will burn. If you are thinking abt buing another medion laptop, think twice or buy those newer ones like p761x, s561x or so..

I believe on the medion you have there may be a switch on the front or side to turn on the wireless. That or FN key and F1.
