Re: medion laptop

System restore is a relatively simple process in itself, However the complications are before and after the installation. Before the restore you need to be sure you have the installers for any applications you added because you will need to reinstall and if necessary configure them again after the restore. You will also need to copy your data to some offline device that will not be involved in the restore and then put it back when you are done. You should periodically backup your data and you should know how to restore it to the system. But how many applications/etc will you need to install and how much data will you be backing up and restoring -- that is the cost of the restore route. Oh yes one more thing -- deleting all the demo software off of the factory install to reclaim your precious hard drive space for thos mp3's or movies you have not yet burned to CD.

To perform the other operation of installing the necesssary items to support the television device appear to be less work. But as you will be changing signficantly a running system assuring you have a reasonably current backup is prudent (and nost of us know we do not have a reasonably current backup or any other backup for that matter). It would be wise to be comfortable with the restoration process for this backup -- unlike data somehow we need to get this backup back onto the computer without the hard drive operating system to help us. Ghost is one of the programs that would allow you to do this and it is even possible to create a backup set of cds that could restore themselves.

While you are considering the two basic options above I will tru ti track down the requirements for the TV install to see how difficult that part of the second option would be.

Hi John ,

you might have to go out and buy a flash drive that hold a micro sd card so you can plug it unto oyur computers USB ports, you can pick these up for under a fiver.

also you could try putting the micro-sd card into your mobile phone if you have one and format the card from there.

Hope this helps.

I think its the whole motherboard to get the card because you cannot buy them.
An if they can be sourced would be talking about 150 or 200 an with fitting about 240 so not really worth it sell it as spares unless u can get a faulty 1 off ebay with broken screen or something like that

Have brought a wireless card to go inside the laptop. Just not sure where it goes inside! There is a power supply cable and a long slot, but this is a tiny card and is far smaller than the slot, can it...

Must admit I am not familiar with this brand and a bit of googling suggests that this model already has built in wireless. However, some forum postings suggested that it in fact doesn't and that the required mini wireless card (which may be what you have bought) connects to the mainboard via a removable cover on the underside of the laptop.

Never come across that before - I have always had PCMCIA wireless cards which are about the size of a fat credit card, and fit in the slot I think you are describing. Sorry, not much to go on. I suggest that you ask Medion Support:

Medion md 96032 laptop no power

Hi again Jack.
I live in Westyorkshire, if you was close to me i would have offered to have a look at the laptop for you, but in this case i think somewhere local will have to do.
I have done a little research and found a place called Leo Computers up near you in Oban, you can check the website here >>>>

If you need any more help please don't hesitate to post back.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

I have a medion computor which is unable to connect to my wireless broadband. The wireless network is recognised, but it doesn't connect. i also have a laptop, but this connects to the wireless broadband....

first off it would be helpful to know some more details, do you know the answers to these questions? also i assume you are connecting to a wifi router in your home network.
1) is there a password for the wireless network you must configure? 2) what operating system are you using? 3) if the OS is windows, do you know if you are using the wireless network settings panel that is part of windows, or does it have another brand name when you click on the wireless or network icon?
some possible causes i can think of are:
1) settings got reset and it cant connect without a password or confirmation to join an unsecured network 2) a new network popped up near the one computer that doesnt work and is being preferred due to signal strength although it is not a valid choice for you to get online 3) in the case of windows, software provided by the wireless hardware manufacturer is fighting with the windows wireless configuration 4) the wifi card in the computer is broken

TV Tuner express card 54 DVB-T Medion

you need to install/re-install the drivers for the expresscard, should be downloadable from medion. Also check in control-panel that the device is there. If you look in My Computer/control Panel/System/Device Manager and the device is listed, with a yellow exclamation mark. try removing/uninstalling. or physically remove from the computer, re-install and go through the new hardware wizard to set it up.
