Question about Medion M3 Composer 5200 PC Desktop
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
