Is that the original power cord for that? Or was that one bought aftermarket, some aftermarket chargers will only power your laptop and not charge.

In this case I would recommend contacting the company directly with email for a bios fix, also they might offer to fix it for free by sending the laptop to them with their cost.

Try contacting the support with email about this.

Your BIOS has overridden your attempt to turn off the beeps. This is pretty common. There may be a fix for this, also common.

If you are getting 1-2 hours of normal, not heavy, use from your battery this is in the normal range.

Getting a use of one hour while giving your machine heavy usage is about average for an older battery. You can't believe all these tests that report battery usage above 2 hours.

There is a free utility that can report back the 'Wear Level' of your current battery. This wear level is indicative of the battery to fail at receiving a full charge anymore.

Do you want to pursue a BIOs fix for your battery if there is one. And do you want to pursue the utility that tells you the wear level of your battery?

    What is your Medion serial number?
    This is where you find it. On the bottom of your subNotebook.

    With that model number one of us real experts may be able to actually help you.

    But, from what I've read, and t be honest, Medion cannot keep up with orders, I really doubt they have had their product on the streets long enough to have created solutions. But you never know.

    I can get you their 800 number, unless you've tried that to no avail. Here it is: (866) 633-4660

    I'm curiouis as to why you didn't get a Eee Asus subNotebook? It has a touch screen you can add now. MSI will be coming out with one soon too. And then there is always good used Gateway Tablet PCs that get resold because salesman have to look like they have the latest model on the market.

    Anyway, provided the serial number and there may be something to turn the beep off in BIOS. I sort of doubt it. If engineers build it in they're reluctant to turn it off. Have you tried putting think tape over the speaker holes, not the normal speakers but a hole or holes underneath for the status beep codes. Those don't use your normal speakers.


  • Glenn Rogers
    Glenn Rogers Jul 01, 2008

    A search of down loadable support files at Medion does not result in anything, for your models S/N.

    This is probably due to the fact that this company is small and being flooded for support on this model you have.

    In either case, its time to make contact with them over the phone as it is highly possible I wasn't able to find anything. Their website isn't one of hte better ones I've worked with for support.

    The phone number is above in my comments to you.

First you can change the battery low alarm lower than 10% I suggest 4%. If battery has been used more than 500 full cycle replacement will be best option. If its below 500 cycle (recharge), better check your BIOS version if its older get newest update. Many laptop companies come up with new updates to manage battery life better.

You may be having battery memory problem .
Battery memory is where the battery becomes conditioned to run for less time than it is designed to run. Say for example, you run your computer on battery for an hour and then you plug it back in to let it recharge. The battery will become conditioned to run only an hour before it runs out of juice.

To correct Battery Memory problems, you must completely drain the battery and recharge it. To completely drain your battery, you must go into your Windows Control Panel and select Power. Then you must turn Power Management Off. Next, you must go into your BIOS and make sure that if there is a power management setting there, that you turn it off as well. In most cases, once you are inside the BIOS, you will highlight Power Management and press Enter. Then locate the item Hibernation at Critical Battery, and by using the Minus sign, change the setting to Off. Once these steps have been completed, then use your Escape key to return to the top level menu, and select Save Settings and Exit.

Once you have completed turning off the power management in both the BIOS and the Operating System, you must unplug the computer, turn the computer on and let it run until it completely runs out of electricity. Then you should charge the battery for 12 hours. At the end of the charging cycle, then run the computer again until the battery is dead, and then charge the battery for 12 more hours. You should repeat this process four times, before returning the computer to its original power management settings.

As far as battery usage goes, it is recommended that you should use the battery once every two weeks, and keep the battery in the system so that the AC adapter can keep the battery charged at all times. It is also recommended that if you don't use the battery for more than two weeks, you should completely discharge the battery and store it at room temperature

Battery Low Signals and Actions

Battery Low occurs when the battery has approximately 10% of its charge remaining. The notebook gives warning beeps to alert you to take actions. If your notebook model has LED indicators, the Battery indicator will blink orange.

Immediately save your date upon Battery Low. The remaining operating time depends on how you are using the notebook: if you are using the audio subsystem, PC card, hard or floppy disk drives, the battery might run out of charge very quickly.

Always respond to Battery low by connecting the AC adapter or turning off the notebook, or suspending your notebook to disk.
If you do not take any action, after two minutes' warning beeps, the notebook will automatically suspend to disk and turn off.

I may suggest you to change the battery,You can disable that sound do this :Go to Power Saving and select "DISABLE" on Battery Low Warning Beep.

Hope that helps.......

Password the bios setup for acer aspire 6530


The most common way that we know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing the Cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard.

Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself. Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the

BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off cmos the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased.

cmos battery Under the keyboard or bottom of laptop - If you are working on a laptop computer the location of the dipswitch (almost never a jumper) can be under the keyboard or on the bottom of the laptop in a compartment such as the memory compartment.

Although on some motherboards the Cmos battery is soldered in


This is a password hack but it clears the BIOS such that the next time you start the PC, the CMOS does not ask for any password. Now if you are able to bring the DOS prompt up, then you will be able to change the BIOS setting to the default. To clear the CMOS do the following:
Get DOS prompt and type:


Code:
DEBUG hit enter-o 70 2e hit enter-o 71 ff hit enter-q hit enter

exit hit enter


Restart the computer. It works on most versions of the AWARD BIOS.

Hi.

There is a problem with the on-board video or the graphics card. If you have a standalone graphics card in the computer take it out, clean the slot and the brass contacts on the card and re-seat it.
Also reset the CMOS by removing the power cord and take out the motherboard battery for 20 minutes. Re-insert the battery and power cord and see of the computer will boot up with a display on-screen.



Good luck.

Low battery warning message on boot up


I'll give you the info for the cmos battery but afterwards observe any other issues with your notebook. Your notebook is not new anymore and may need other servicing besides a new cmos battery.

It should be housed driectly undeneath you notebook on a panel you can remove that houses the ram.

If you still cant find it, you may have to physicaly take apart the unit. I would search under the keyboard and all four corners of the motherboard and center. Just in case.

Let me know how it goes.

P.s: Be very careful If you are not use to opening up notebooks then I suggest taking unit to a professional for them to replace the cmos battery.
