Had same sounding problem with a Medion PC myself. I don't know the cause exactly but the fix I have is this:
Switch off PC, switch off PSU and unplug the power cable from the PC. Then press the power button on your PC. You may see lights and fans start up for just a brief second. This is because there was still charge in the PSU's capacitors which we needed to clear out.

You can now plug the power cable back in, switch on the PSU and turn your PC on.

(I realise this is too late for the original poster's uses but others may find it useful when searching for a problem!)

Check first your memory card or RAM card. Reseat it or wipe its edge connector with soft eraser, this will clean its insulation build up in the connector allowing a good contact.

But do this when the power is off and unplugged to the wall socket or disconnect it to the UPS if you have.

If it doesn't power up try to install a good ram spare, could be your ram is failing. If it doesn't boot up. Try to boot your unit at basic setup. To isolate which is making the fault. You gonna have a good spare when doing this.

Hope it is only ram issue.

Enter the system bios and set the boot order to boot from CD ROM. If this order is correct and you are still experiencing the same issue. Re-enter the bios and set it to default setup. However, enter the boot order and ensure the CD-ROM is the first boot device and Hard Drive is the second.

Black screen


Sounds like your screen is being switched to "Power Save" mode due to inactivity. This should switch back when the mouse is moved. This can take several seconds on a laptop. You can remove this "Power Save" by right clicking anywhere on blank desktop, select "Properties", "Screen Saver" and "Power Settings" then select "Always On" for the monitor.

Remove any disk inserted n your computer (floppy or cd) and try again.
Check the cables connection and monitor connection.

Processor issue? bios/motherboard?


First, Pull the hard drive. If the hard drive shorts out it can cause all sorts of problems. Generally it detects Hdd before mouse and keyboard.
