5 years old Medion computer not working


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.

Medion tower computer wont power up

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

I have a medion computer approx 10years old and am hoping to load it with windows 7 but on trying to load this the computer says the proccesor needs changing can you tell me if this should be possible...

There is no way to run windows 7 on this computer. The hardware is just too old.

On the other hand, if you're used to this one, you can buy a new one with Windows 7 preloaded for under $400 (even at WalMart!) and it will work much better than the ten year old computer. Since Windows 7 costs about $100 just by itself, you can move up for only about $300 overall.

5 year old Medion Computer - Med MT247A - now running very slow with weak wireless signal

The most common reason for slow processing speed is insufficient RAM memory.

Increase the RAM, if RAM available is no more than 512MB, then it must be upgraded.

Check also your hard drive state. If you have less than 1GB free, that will slow down the system. Go to Start>>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Defregmenter and do a Defrag of the hard disk.

If you have at least 1 GB RAM, and you took care of the hard drive, then you can check the process starting up on their own and remove the useless one, or spot mala-ware that can affect speed. You can use a software like Hijack This, and search on google te function of each process started on the list reported by the software.

You can download Hijack this here MajorGeeks | If download does not start, then click at the top of the page, where it says Click Here If It Does Not.
Be careful if you delete the wrong files using this software you can harm the system, and Windows may not work properly.

If you think you have malaware you can also install Spy Bot, and do a system scan. Download Spybot from The home of Spybot.

If all the above does not work, and there is no malaware, then you usually reinstall the system.

Check also the bios settings, BIOS can downgrade the CPU speed on default , even if this is uncommon on recent BIOS.

If a computer is still slow with a fresh system and enough resources then it is one of those rare occasions when you have an hardware fault.
Hardware that can cause slow down is: RAM CPU Motherboard HD Video card.

Some tips on procedure can damage your windows installation. Do not download Hijackthis software and do not change BIOS settings and do not touch hardware unless you are sure of what you are doing.

Usually this is caused by the Compact Fluorescent Tubes that run down the back of the screen, or the inverter that powers them.

If you are really confident, you might be able to but replacement CCFL's and inverters on ebay and install them or you could take the machine to a professional and them do it.

Alternatively if you use your laptop at a desk, you could simply plug it in to a monitor and use it like that.

I hope that helps, if you have any further problems, please add them ass comments to this question. If I have been able to answer your question (or not) please click on one of the ratings buttons to let everyone know how I did.

Medion Akoya EX Laptop computer

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.
