Question about Medion M3 Composer 5200 PC Desktop

2 Answers

PC issues I have a Medion M3 Compressor 5200 PC desktop. When I try to turn on the computer, I hear the fans start but the keyboard doesn't work and the monitor says : Self Test, Check your PC and Signal Cable, Monitor is working. I'm not sure what the problem is and I don't know how to open the CPU case to check or fix any problems. Any help is much appreciated. Thank you.

    This is the exact same problem that I have. I am currently in the early stages of identifying and resolving the problem.

    If anyone has guidance please let me know.

Do any of the lights on the keyboard light up, even for a second? Your monitor is probably working right, but I would unplug both the power and video cables from the monitor & pc and re-plug them, then turn it on and see what happens. Also, you could try hooking up another monitor if you have one available. If you still have a problem after this, I would suggest getting a different video card (if it's the FX5300, it's a pretty low-end card anyway). To open the case (after unplugging the power), take the 2 screws off the back. The side with the fan vent will slide off the back; this may take a lot of force. Don't be afraid of breaking the case, it's quite heavy-duty! Try a different video card from someplace that will let you return it if that doesn't fix the problem. Please let us know how it goes!

There are one or two screws on the back of the CPU tower itself. Remove those sccrews and the side should slide off. Once in there and make sure that the power cable is unplugged, remove the memory and then reinsert the memory. It will have two tabs one on both sides. Check that first then if that fails it almost sounds like it might be a mother board problem.

I want to change my power suply,mine has got very noisey over the last year, works fine but noisey please reconmend a good up grade make and model or severial 450 to 800 watts I have the medion m3 composer...

Corsair 550VX (550watts and in my opinion the best PSU in it's class)
Or Corsair 450VX which is a 450 watt version and probably more than you need but not over-kill either. I have used a 450VX in my own system on a Quad Core 125 watt AMD Phenom Processor, 3 hard drives, 8 USB Ports, 5 case fans, 2 DVD burners, etc.. without any problems for years. They are guaranteed for five years from the manufacturer.

Please I have a MEDION M3 Composer 5200 PC Desktop that was operating on windows vista. I changed the operating system to windows xp SP3 for teaching basis and I have been searching for its VGA and Audio...

Here's a link to the Medion driver/support download page, I tried searching for M3, 5200 and Composer but had no results so I'd suggest you try searching by the MSN as recommended to increase your chances. Don't know if you've tried this but you could always right click on the device within control panels device manager and select the update driver software option to let Windows download one if you don't have any luck with the Medion site. Hope you get it fixed.

Your problem is probably the video card is bad. Try taking out the video card and plugging your monitor directly into the onboard VGA on your motherboard. Your video card is probably causing some power issues that cause your machine to shut off to prevent any damage.
