I have Medion akoya e7214 laptop and i just installed windows 8 on it,now the cam isn't working,I rang up the Medion support,and they told me that they don't support windows and that i need to buy a new l/top to get the cam working (this is absolutely ridiculous. Is there any way of going around this by downloading a driver from somewhere( beside the Medion site )that can get my cam working,I would really like to keep windows 8 as it works a lot better than windows 7

Try and find out what the manufacturer and model of the camera is and search the manufacturer's site or the internet for Windows 8 drivers. There is not much else you can do. The notebook was designed for Windows 7 and there are not very many Windows 8 hardware device drivers available.

    Try looking for a Windows 8 driver for a Sonix Simplo Webcam. This seems to be the webcam associated with the Medion e721

Medion E7214 overheating


Overheating When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.

Can't turn on wireless


Have you checked whether your wireless access point/router is working. For example does your smartphone detect your wifi signal. If not turn off off your access point/router, wait 30 seconds and then switch back on.
Also in the bottom right of your toolbar you will be able to bring up an option to connect to the wi fi - did you set this to automatic?

My wireless wont turn on on medion akoya E5211 ... i need to turn on my wireless connection switch and dont know how or where it is


I had the same problem so I rang Medion & they told me go to the Medion website and download "Launch Manager" from your driver page. It's a program that turns on all of the Fn keys. Thus making the wireless (Fn+F1) work as well as the brightness (Fn+F8 or F9).
This is the only way to get it to work
