Hi, not more than one year ago, i bought myself a medion akoya E7214. So far, I haven't had any problems but since yesterday, my battery won't charge.

I don't know what to do with it or how to solve it, so if you could help me, i'dd be realy gratefull. Thanks.

It may be that the battery is no good any more for some reason or another and not taking a charge. You may want to check this and if you take it into a service center they should be able to test your battery and see if it needs replaced. I would check this first. If that is not the issue you may have a problem internally.

    Hi sander_theun,
    I've just had the the same situation and problem as you, after reading about the device manager way which i tried did not work 1st time, though what i did the second time was.....
    1. Click Start and type device in the search field, then select Device Manager .
    2. Expand the Batteries category.
    3. Under the Batteries category, right-click the Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery listing, and select Uninstall .
    4.Shut down Computer
    5.Removed battery
    6.Vacuumed all connections so everything was clean (dust-free)
    7.Powered up laptop without the Battery connected
    8.Once laptop recognized Battery wasn't detected
    9.Connected Battery and "voila" the orange battery light second from the left came on and the taskbar icon showed the battery 3%available (plugged in, charging)
    10. 15 mins later 14%available (plugged in, charging) :)

    I had this same problem, so contacted medion help. They advised me to remove the battery and power source, then press the start button and hold for 10 secs. This solve the problem for me.

Try and find out what the manufacturer and model of the camera is and search the manufacturer's site or the internet for Windows 8 drivers. There is not much else you can do. The notebook was designed for Windows 7 and there are not very many Windows 8 hardware device drivers available.

Medion E7214 overheating

Overheating When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.
