Re: medion mim2080 notebook

I’d the same problem, the HD was busted. I replaced the dammed Samsung HD 40GB (only 2 years use) by a Hitachi Travelstar 60 GB, and the notebook is back from the dead. I used the windows pack that comes with the notebook on the recover. A 100% data loss from the old HD.

Wanted a new battery for a medion notebook mod number MIM2080

If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, I think you will be pleasantly surprised as usually one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, list of Dealers for spare part supplies and Driver downloads (if applicable) as required.

The information is normally free of charge.

I hope this helps.

Medion MIM2080 MD95408 Original 40gb hard drive has died. Purchased 80gb replacement. Have cloned WIN_XP_PRO from another device onto new hard drive. When laptop boots all you get is a black screen...

did you get all the files? most likely there is a corrupt or missing set of files in the cloned files
i suggest you either get a new hard copy (disks) and install from there or use linux (most linux OS's are free online)

I have a medion notebook model md 40954 and i get 3 beeps and the screen is black . any ideas what i need to do ?

Medion/Aldi seem very jealous of revealing their beep codes on the net. Still, I can try from a general perspective with a few suggestions.

1. Try starting the computer by pushing the power button for only the smallest fraction of time possible.

2. Unplug the computer, remove the battery and then hold down the power button for 45 seconds to 1 minute. Sometimes this may work on the 1st try, but often may on the 3rd or 4th. If not, leave that method behind.

3. If neither of these work, try speaking with Medion Support directly and try not to be to heavy handed on the "blue thumbs" with a negative response my way.

Be well,

Can anyone tell me where I may be able to purchase a replacement lcd screen for a medion mim2080 laptop. Having real problems trying to locate one

There are only a _few_ manufacturers of LCD screens.

So, look on eBay for an LCD screen that is the same size as yours, especially if the seller states "generic" or "compatible with MIM2080", buy it, and install it (or get a qualified computer-technician to do it correctly & safely).

Have brought a wireless card to go inside the laptop. Just not sure where it goes inside! There is a power supply cable and a long slot, but this is a tiny card and is far smaller than the slot, can it...

Must admit I am not familiar with this brand and a bit of googling suggests that this model already has built in wireless. However, some forum postings suggested that it in fact doesn't and that the required mini wireless card (which may be what you have bought) connects to the mainboard via a removable cover on the underside of the laptop.

Never come across that before - I have always had PCMCIA wireless cards which are about the size of a fat credit card, and fit in the slot I think you are describing. Sorry, not much to go on. I suggest that you ask Medion Support:

Cannot start up the laptop

Hi there.
That really quick flash of a blue screen is the blue screen of death and there is a possibility that the error could be memory related.
What you have to do is remove and clean the system memory and the slots the memory goes into.
Take out the battery and the AC power (if attached)
The memory will be located behind a panel underneath the laptop, unscrew the panel unclip the memory, clean the brass contacts and the slots with a clean, dry, soft paintbrush, then reseat the memory making sure it clips into place, replace the memory cover and reboot the laptop, see if it lets you into windows.

Please post back with the results and more help if needed, good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Mim2080 hard drive upgrade

Yes. You can get a bigger hard drive for it, no prob, 60, 80, 100, 120 is the biggest for these I believe, but I could be wrong. I've found that has the best prices on hard drives.

Laptop boots then shuts and continously does it

you really need a recovery CD, or windows operating system.
try removing any external devices ( Printers/scanners/ USB devices et,c ) And start the computer up with bare minimum devices attached/connected. it may be one of the external devices causing your problem.
