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......!

Re: 5 years old Medion computer not working
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.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

You didn't give much info to work with The Computer is a Medion? Model? OS? Is the wireless a PCI card? Need more info. Have you done any software /hardware changes, updates, upgrades? what does it say when you try to connect?
Same problem with my sons 96640 In at Medion now waiting for supplies of new motherboard to come in-from what I have read elsewhere the graphics chip causes the same problem on other laptops, not just medion
It sounds like you have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors will
blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called capacitors
overheating in the confined space of he monitor. If you are good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix he problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm You
can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad
parts,replace any that look like the pictures and your monitor should
work fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and
- connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one
the same way. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair
service for $35 plus shipping.
I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

i had this problem a few days ago actually. your computer, especially because its a laptop could be overheated. this could have killed your CPU(central power unit) inside of your computer. I would just wait about three days or so after keeping it in a moderate temperature and then try to turn it back on again. Thats what I did and as you can tell min is Working!
please rate my answer I would really appreciate it!
What you may be noticing is the system going through a defrost cycle. Check the time of the day that you notice this event. If it happens at the same times it could be a normal situation if at all other times normal temperatures are being maintained. A popping sound can be caused by thermal expansion during the defrost.
if you can't even access the bios, the first thing i'd do is to try and reload it. open your computer, find your motherboard, and find the little cmos switch.change it's position, wait a for 30 secs, the flip it back in the previous position. if your computer still won't start, then your motherboard is prolly faulty and you need to get a new one.
your ram can be removed by first pressing down the little switches on either side of the thingy that holds the ram, and then gently removing it. when you put in the new ram, make sure your pc is placed so that you're putting the ram in from above. then just gently squeeze it in and flip the switches back. you should hear a click.
