Question about Medion (40010998)
My Medion computer is 5 years old. It has three little lights on it, which usually all light up when I turn it on. For the past week, when I have turned it on, only two lights show up. The lights for the cd-rom and dvd activate normally. However, on the screen, all I get is a black page with lots of white writing, and at the bottom, is a message that says something like "system loading error". It will not do anything else. No matter what I press on the keyboard, nothing happens. I have checked the cables are all connected at the back of the tower, but they are fine.
I did have a problem a couple of weeks ago, whereby the computer kept turning itself off or warning me that it was going to shutdown, whilst I was using it. Not sure if that is related to this problem.
Sorry this is a basic description, but as you can guess, I am not computer savvy......!
I haven´t got any solution to the problem

The shut down's were probably related to your current problem, the firmare on your hard disc will know when a system failure is immenant and shuts off; it's sounds as if your hard drive which has the operating system on it has failed and therefore giving the 'system loading error'.
If you are not computer savvy, then take to a repairer and tell them that you have a suspect hard drive failure and they should be able to replace and reinstall windows as long as you have the windows installation disc.

Tips for a great answer:
Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your motherboard to your hard drive make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
hope this helps

It sounds to me like some of the cells in the battery has collapsed.
A 12 volt light doesn't use as much juice on the battery as when you boot up. When Mobo, Monitor, Harddrive etc etc. start up they all use a large start-up-current and if the battery cant sustain the amount of amp. they all need together, nothing happens.
This is called shadow-charge, the battery seems fine, but when it really needs to put out some power it collapses.
I think you should try to sniff up another battery and see if this one has the same problem.
Or perhaps investigate wether or not you still have some warranty left on the battery, to try to get a free replacement.
