Question about Medion M3 Composer 5200 PC Desktop

7 minute 40 second bootup

Thats just to log in.
There is this screen that has one logo for the Pentium processor and it stays up for about 4 minutes. There is heavy fan work with some clear boot up sounds for the first 30 seconds of it and then silence.
Its really annoying.

How much system memory is installed ?

if less then 128mb try installing more memory for a quicker boot


Is the Internals of the Computer Clean ?

If it is full of dust and other foreign debris give the inside a good clean making sure you do not touch any of the components without first holding onto the system case discharging static.

Have you booted quickly before ?

If this is your first boot check the boot order in BIOS , the HDD jumper settings and make sure master is master and slave is slave , also new bus cables could fix problems here.

If you have booted quickly before check memory and video card etc is seated properly and do a good clean / defrag and chkdsk on the hard drive.

Also it isnt trying to do a network boot in the background is it ? while the pentium logo is displayed press escape this should hopefully bring up whats happening in the background at boot , if you notice it trying to boot from the network usually pressing escape at this point will disable the network boot , to delete this from happening find the partition in disk managment with the network boot installed and delete it.

if not whats going on ? (if anything ?) or is it just memory and device diagnostics ?

In Bios can you find anything that says quick or fast boot ?

Tell me if you have any more information thanks

WHAT IS USER PASSWARD CRACK IN THE MOTHERBOARD..


hi!

If you mean BIOS password, then you just need to take out battery from your motherboard (your PC should be completely disconnected from power supply), then - wait for approximately 30-40 minutes and return it back. BIOS settings, including password, will be reset.

Good luck.

When i try to boot it up, the monitor, keyboard, and mouse don't


So, this is a Desktop unit. My advice is this; Take the cover off and try to dust off as much webbing inside as possible.Make sure you take off the power cord when working inside. You will see a fan near the middle of the motherboard. This is your Heatsink/Fan for your CPU. I would bet many pennies this is overheated and may not boot again and if it does it will be unreliable. With your fingers and everything out of the way, plug the bare unit in and turn it on. Make sure the fan on top of the CPU is running. If not, quickly shut it off. I will help you more as you write back and we will get it running.

Pc is restarting but doesn't show the log on screen


It sounds like your Windows Installation is corrupt. If there isn't anything you need on the drive, I would get a Windows XP CD (Look on the side of your case for a Windows Key, Get that version of the CD) Then I'd use that windows XP CD to wipe the drive and Re-install windows. If there is Data on the drive you need, You will need to invest in either a second HD, or You need to Install Windows on a Second HD and boot from that if you already have a second HD.

Next time you boot, go into your Bios and change the CPU settings back to normal. It's possible you did fry the processor but unless you set it back to normal you'll never know. Best of luck with your problem.

You might have damaged the CPU/ motherboard during the process of overclocking.

Check your CPU on other compatible mobo.

Check your mobo documentation properly & set the jumpers rightly. If that doesn't help, you will have to replace the mobo.

Just a bit of information. Your slow speed reguards to DSL is bull. Unless your ISP requires your system to run a min Mhz cpu. Cant really suggest how high you can up your cpu unless we know the model of the board & it wouldn't hurt to know the bios version too.
