Question about Medion (MT8381) (40004683) Motherboard

3 Answers

Medion Motherboard Hi, I have recently purchased a secondhand Medion PC. The problem is that the PC won't boot up, or power my Monitor. The graphics card if an Nvidia G-Force 6200, and has a VGA socket and a DVI-I (I think that's what it is) port. There isn't a power connector on the back of the PC for the monitor, so I've plugged the monitor directly into a wall power supply. At first the PC would start, CPU Fan would start whirring but then it would shut off after 3 seconds. At this point there was an intermittent beep coming from the CPU, which is an AMD Athlon 2400. I resat the CPU and now the PC doesn't power itself off, but it still won't power my monitor. Another worrying thing is that the PC doesn't 'beep' at startup like most I've had in the past, nor do I hear the floppy drive looking to boot and the numlock light isn't on. I have systematically removed IDE cables and some of the leads to see if this makes a difference, and removed the bios battery (There is no bios jumper). I am now stuck and don't know what to do. Anyone help!? Please............ Thanks Mezzo

Re: Medion Motherboard

I had this problem with my Medion... what model is yours? The beeping is a code and indicates what the problem is. I called Medion support ant they asked me how many beeps and all that... they determined that the motherboard was toast and replaced it under warranty.

If you cannot reach the BIOS settings screen at power-up, then try another known-good is likely dead.

My motherboard have power but no display on screen

Please follow the following :

* Make sure that you have connected the Monitor cable firmly.
* Make sure that CPU fan is spinning else check & make it run (your pc won't boot if you missed your fan).
* Check for any unusual beep sounds after you switch on.
* Remove your RAM, Power cables, other Add on cards. Clean/wipe them properly and reinsert them correctly.
* If your PC installed Graphic Card, remove it and run your PC again using your onboard vga port.
* Replace your Power Supply Unit with another good conditioned one.
If the problem persist check your processor.

My advent pc which has a fox conn a7vmx k motherboard wont boot up, it powers on with constant fan only. I've removed and put back in each device one at a time but that failed too. Anyone know what I can...

Keep connected just the keyboard, mouse and monitor and try to boot in the BIOS - if it fails then the motherboard is faulty and you must replace it.

ASUS P5S8000-VM/S no bios screen no beeps

From the description of the problem, it seems that either the power switch of your PC or the power supply cable is faulty. Also, please let us know if the motherboard LED is glowing or not. Do reply for more assistance.

Beeping at start up

Check your motherboard manual or download a pdf document from the manufacturer. Read the section detailing post beep error codes. If you cannot find the manual anywhere start removing all but basic hardware until your computer boots. IE CD's external graphics cards/modems/network cards/ disconnect usb hubs from the board./Ram sticks Its helpful if you have replacement hardware laying around for testing or another computer that you can borrow from to ascertain the exact problem your experiencing. Somthing has failed in your machine and it's probably RAM. Your hard disk may have failed but even so that would not prevent the motherboard from posting.

Emachine won't boot. when first turned on, get 2 beeps, floating error "Self check, check your PC and signal cable, monitor is working" on black screen, fan runs fast and loud. machine not connected to...

I am an emachine specialist. These computer suffer with problem motherboards which often blow the power supply unit. Replacing the power supply on it's own does not solve the problem as the motherboard processor socket is the cause of the problem, the fault in turn blows the power supply. The same applies to all Advent and Medion computers sold via the high street stores.
