Question about Medion (40010998)
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.

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.
