Re: medion mim2080

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.

Hi there, Firstly, I've tried to search for this issue but no joy, but if I have missed it - then I apologise! Basically, I recently had to do a fresh install of Vista on a Medion WIM 2160 laptop. Ever...

before you installed vista, did you check to see if your laptop met the minimum standards for windows vista?

Did you check the mfr's website for updated drivers?

Laptop powers on, but windows doesnt load

Boot PC from Windows XP installation CD you will be ask to instal fresh copy or repair existing installation - go for "fresh copy" software will analyze you PC and try to find your previous copy of Win XP you will be ask again to repair copy of your existing Windows Xp now go for "Repair" option so installation software restore all Windows files and will keep all your settings*.
This solution is only temporary because IE 7 and 8 will no longer work after restoring - backup all your data and instal fresh copy of Win XP after all and always keep Your Backup up to date!!

Can't turn on wireless

Hi there.
Hold down Fn and hit F1 or F2, with some medion models the wireless activation is next to the power button.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

Laptop failure

Boot into safe mode by pressing F8 about 10 times during the post screen. Then completely remove your video drivers. Then reboot, into windows normally, go to the Nvidia web site and download the latest graphics drivers for the video card that you have. If this does not solve your problem, then you may have bad video memory on your video card.

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.
