Question about Medion M3 Composer 5200 PC Desktop

1 Answer

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 type of dual core processor can I use for my dc7600?


The motherboard for the dc7600 has an Intel LGA775 processor socket. However, not all LGA775 processors are compatible with the motherboard. For the small form factor, the following CPUs are supported: Intel Celeron D Processors:
Intel Celeron D 331 Processor (2.66-GHz, 256K L2 cache, 533-MHz FSB) , Intel Celeron D 336 Processor (2.80-GHz, 256K L2 cache, 533-MHz FSB) , Intel Celeron D 346 Processor (3.06-GHz, 256K L2 cache, 533-MHz FSB)
Intel Pentium 4 Processors with HT Technology:
Intel Pentium 4 521 Processor (2.8-GHz, 1-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB) , Intel Pentium 4 524 Processor (3.06-GHz, 1-MB L2 cache, 533-MHz FSB) , Intel Pentium 4 541 Processor (3.2-GHz, 1-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 620 Processor (2.8-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 630 Processor (3.0-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 631 Processor (3.0-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 640 Processor (3.2-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 641 Processor (3.2-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 650 Processor (3.4-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 651 Processor (3.4-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 661 Processor (3.6-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB) or
Intel Pentium D Dual Core Processors:
Intel Pentium D 805 Dual Core Processor (2.66-GHz, 2x1MB L2 cache, 533-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 820 Dual Core Processor (2.8-GHz, 2x1MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 915 Dual Core Processor (2.8-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 925 Dual Core Processor (3.0-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 930 Dual Core Processor (3.0-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 940 Dual Core Processor (3.2-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 945 Dual Core Processor (3.4-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 950 Dual Core Processor (3.4-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800 MHz FSB)

Unfortunately, these are old processors and I don't see any available new. Newegg.com lists a couple available as refurbished. You may be better off getting a new computer with either a Intel I3 or current AMD processor.

I wish that I had better news for you.

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.

UPGRADING FROM PENTIUM 3 PROCESSOR TO PENTIUM 4 PROCESSOR


To upgrade from a Pentium 3 to a Pentium 4 processor, you would have to replace the motherboard. The Pentium 4 processor has more pins on it than the Pentium 3 and would not sit in a Pentium 3 motherboard.

I need a bigger cpu


The largest pentium 4 processor on the market is the 3.4 ghz pentium 4 processor it comes in extreme edition but thats rather pricey. Your motherboard should be able to support it. Your computer will probably support up to 4 gigs of ram.
