Question about Medion Motherboards

1 Answer

PC keeps freezing on boot up

I have a Medion tower (mt6) & it keeps locking up when trying to start.. I have tried a new HDD ..... replaced the CMOS battery ...... cleared the motherboard by removing the jumper [on the J1 connection, i think it was called, by the CMOS battery] ..... All to no luck!

Any other ideas?????

    Thanks, yes the pc does startup in safe-mode (normally on the 2nd attempt & I MUST LEAVE THE 30 SECOND COUNTDOWN TO RUN DOWN TO ZERO) ...... I also tried to boot up to a Ubuntu HDD, but it hung again.



    I'll try a windows repair (from the CD) but don't hold out much hope for it.

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

Powers up but HDD just clicks. Tried several things...


if the hard drive clicks, there's either a serious problem with the hard drive itself, but since you already tested with a drive that is sure to work, it has to be the motherboard. the other post you read, has probably nothing to do with your own problem. try reinstalling your system board's drivers or replace the system board if unsuccessful

Check CMOS battery(Coin shaped battery), it should show 2.5-3V, if not then replace and check, you can even try and test the mbd without the CMOS battery. Some mbd does not boot with a faulty CMOS battery.
