You have to change the boot information in the MBR (master boot record) on the hard discs. To do this, you need either the install or update CD/DVD for your version of Windows (make sure that the SP matches). Note: if the drive from your original Medion computer has the drivers (motherboard and other hardware) from that computer, you need to reinstall the OS on to that drive. Then fix the boot record as you install the OS. Usually uninstalling the motherboard drivers is recommended before moving a hard drive to a new system.
You need to boot from the optical drive. Either set the BIOS to check the optical drive first or press F12 repeatedly as the computer starts up. (I usually have to restart and try again to access the change boot order menu.) Once you are in the Windows, you need to access the recovery console and the command prompt. You need to have the recovery program identify all the Windows OS options on the discs. If you have XP, first use the map command to identify the discs. Then use the command fixboot (devicename) and fixmbr (devicename) to put a new boot partition on the appropriate drive and then fix the MBR.
With Vista or Win7, the commands are slightly different. Use the Bootrec command. First use Bootrec /ScanOS to identify the versions of Windows on the drives. Next use the /RebuildBCD switch to list the available OS versions. Next use the /fixboot (if you want the Vista or Win7 OS to boot first) and /fixMBR switches.
Any hard drive repair utility CD for Windows will likely have a program to repair the MBR. These may be easier to use with some combinations of OS versions.)
I hope this helps.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.
If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.
In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.
In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.
A Code 10 error is generated when Device Manager can't start the hardware
device, a situation usually caused by outdated or corrupted driver A device may
also receive a Code 10error if a driver generates an error that Device Manager
doesn't understand. In other words, a Code 10 error can sometimes be a very
generic message indicating some kind of unspecified driver or hardware problem.
Uninstalling and then reinstalling the drivers for the device is a likely
solution to a Code 10 error. If reinstalling driver is not working than try to
rollback the driver or restore the system on previous date..
1.) Boot from "WINDOWS 7" DVD;
2.) Select "Repair computer";
3.) Select "Cancel" to exit the repair wizard;
4.) You will now get a screen which displays 'command prompt','system restore','memory diagnostics',etc......
5.) Select "command prompt";
6.) Type your "DVD-DRIVE LETTER" in command prompt, press ENTER;
7.) Now if your Windows 7 is installed in C drive, type "copy bootmgr c:\" without codes, press ENTER;
8.) After successful copy type "exit" without codes, press ENTER;
9.) Reboot computer;
10.) Select "start windows normally";
Did it work before? If so, you may be out of memory or disk space for that operation. Sometimes the mouse driver cannot be running properly with very little memory. You can prevent some programs or services from starting while starting up your computer to preserve memory. In order to do that, you will need to configure the boot files. If you are using Windows, use command line command msconfig to see some options to turn off start up services and programs. If the problem persists, your mouse driver may be corrupted or there might be a registry issue. You can try to perform a system restore to the date that it worked.
But if there is an error message when you try to open that file, show me that error message and I will post more advice.
To fix the error, you need to download and install the latest DirectX version on your system. If you are not sure of which DirectX version is running on your system, perform the following tasks to find out:
Open Start menu and select the Run command.
In the Open box, type dxdiag and press Enter to open the DirectX Diagnostic Tool window.
Here, you can find the DirectX version that is installed on your PC in the bottom part.
You might have to download and install a later/better copy of Direct X Hope this helps
Problem with windows. I hope it is XP. Try system restore to a nearby time. If you cannot do anything, try repairing with windows cd. If it is XP, I would recommend you to format and install windows7. If XP is only availalbe, do a format of C drive.
Some basics to ensure we're talking about about the same thing. Mostly doesn't help you procedd because you can't get out from pushing the F1 key. This command are part on the BIOS, I don't say that your BIOS is defective but this time your BIOS is not updated by a newer version from firmware. Supposedly it will go through going to boot up Operating System. Get into it to upgrade your BIOS into a newer version by installing it using Flash BIOS Firmware. If still the problem exist then there another sign of problems which is 100% works by replacing the CMOS/BIOS Battery inside (Lithium Battery CR2032). This time maybe the CMOS Battery is weak and you use it for more than 2 or more years. By replacing it just follow the instructions from your motherboard manual which it shows where the CMOS/BIOS battery belong (Motherboard Diagram). If you made it to remove by yourself, careful to remove it because it very soft. Unplug all power connections before you do it.
If you have the installation disc of Windows, perform a clean install. This should resolve your problem. But performing clean install will erase all data from the partition. If you want to find the components in your computer, download and install Everest Ultimate from http://www.lavalys.com/ It will then be easy to search for drivers online.
