It sounds like there is a short on your motherboard.your graphics card might be bad.or lcd screen.when you hook up a external monitor do you wait till everything is booted.wait 5 min then hook up the crt monitor.hold down fn then the button with the monitors.if none of this works then your graphics card is going bad.if it keeps restarting then there is a chipset problem or a bet is to get a new the harddrive and the ram,cd player, can sell these or buy the same type of laptop.and use these parts.

Your best bet is to hope it goes up in flames then you can claim off your insurance, the problem can't be fixed.
I have the same machine but with mine it got hot and the graphics processor has burnt out, it seems to be common with this model.
I can't even connect to an external monitor as everything to do with the VGA is fried and Medion support are useless.
I'll never buy a Medion again even though my previous two going back 8 years still work if somewhat slow.

Medion 2310 laptop switches off as soon as charger is plugged in

1. It can be a screw loose inside the unit shorting something out.
2. The AC Port is damaged and needs to be re soldered.
3. Bad motherboard.

I've seen this be a bad motherboard more than not, however it has been the other 2 options from time to time. Most likely need to take it apart and you can see if it's the first 2 and if not than your board is bad.

Close usually only counts in horseshoe throwing ..l The power supply really must be spot on...or better current rating.. see it's the Current supplied thats important as well as the voltage usually around 17v, but can B 12v, 14v, so ya gotta choose carefully, usually it is written somewhere on the lappy's bottom or by power socket. Most, all?, lappy's will work without a battery installed, they simply will not be able to use hibernate mode and sleep mode etc due to no battery but as long as the power is on it will be OK. Ensure your power connector is actually making contact with the length and center pin contact of the lappy's sockst they can be a devil for size..
