Medion PC MT 5 type MEDMT79


Fuse in the plug?
Sounds like a good design...........

[Since I do not know, is this an indication that the power cord's plug, on the surge protector side; has a fuse in it? ]

So what is the method to check a fuse?
Is it the preferred method to eyeball it?
No
A multimeter set to OHM's, should be used to check it. (1K)

"It looks like the fuse element is going across okay"
Not always true. May be present, but not actually be touching one of the ends, and fool you.

Going with the premise that you KNOW;
A) The fuse to be good
B) The power cord TO Power Supply is good.
C) THE receptacle in the surge protector, that you have the power cord plugged into; is good.

Reasoning on the last statement?
I have had Many surge protectors, where just THAT receptacle was bad.
"Hmmm, power LED light is on, so surge protector is on,
router has power, monitor has power, and so does the printer.
Let me plug a table lamp into THAT receptacle, the computer is plugged into........"

Nope! NADA!

Power is KNOWN to be getting TO Power Supply?

Okay. Suggest a simple test now.
This test determines if the problem is the Power Supply; Or the Power On switch.......

The test is to use a jumper wire, on the ATX main power cable's connector.

Do Not know which one the Medion has.
It is either a 20-pin ATX main power cable, or a 24-pin ATX main power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain20

[NOTE* Color of connectors does NOT matter ]

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24

Whichever one your Power Supply has, look for the GREEN wire.
The Green wire is the Soft Power On wire. (Abbreviated as PS_ON)

The Green wire is Temporarily jumped to ANY Black wire.
ALL Black wires are Ground wires.

The preferred jumper wire is a straightened out paperclip, bent into a U-shape.
Turn the U-shape over.
The top of the U is wrapped a few times with black plastic electrical tape. (Color doesn't matter. It's just that Black is more common)

This taped area is for your fingers, and thumb to hold onto.
The 'Legs' coming down, are what is used.

Power Supply plugged into power, and 20 or 24-pin ATX main power cable; plugged into motherboard.

The BACK of the ATX main power cable's connector, is where the wires go in.
It is the Back of the ATX main power cable's connector, where the U-shaped jumper wire is to be used.

One leg slides down into a socket hole, that has the Green wire in it.
Slides RIGHT NEXT TO the green insulation of the wire, and down into the socket hole.

MUST slide down into the socket hole far enough, that the U-shaped jumper wire touches a female metal terminal; that is on the end of the Green wire.

This is an example of what the female metal terminal connector, looks like,

http://www.mcmelectronics.com/product/28-9420&utm_medium=Affiliate&ref=cj&utm_campaign=CommissionJunction&utm_source=CommissionJunction?utm_expid=8634549-14

Looking back at the Playtool link, look at the middle photo.
There you see the ATX main power cable, unplugged from the motherboard, and you see a FRONT view of the connector.
Here you can make out the open end, of the metal terminal connectors mentioned above.

The jumper wire must touch the Back of this connector.
(Jumper wire has to go Approximately 3/8ths of an inch, down into the socket hole.
.375 inches)

Moving on........

The other leg of the U-shaped jumper wire, goes down into ANY socket hole with a Black wire in it.
ALL Black wires are Ground wires. (Negative)

[This is a DC circuit. There is a Positive, and a Negative.
ALL power wires are Positive wires. ALL Black wires are negative wires. { Ground ]

The Soft Power On circuit uses 5 Volts DC.
In comparison two D cell flashlight batteries produce 3 Volts DC.

NOT stating there may be a small spark!
It's just the way electricity works.
For this reason you may wish to wear a glove, on the jumper wire hand.

The contact period made is no more than 2 seconds.
The Power On switch is a Momentary Contact Switch.

IF, the Power Supply turns on you have a bad Power On switch.
IF, the Power Supply does NOT turn on, you have a bad Power Supply.

The Power Supply in your computer is a Converter.
It converts HIGH AC voltage down to 3 LOW DC voltages;
3.3 Volts DC
5 Volts DC
12 Volts DC

EACH one is a Voltage Power Rail.

Orange wires are 3.3 Volt wires
Red wires are 5 Volts
Yellow wires are 12 Volts
(ALL Black wires are Ground/Negative wires)

EVERY wire that is Orange, is a 3.3 Volt (DC) wire.
ALL Orange wires go back TO the Power Supply.
They all connect TO the 3.3 Volt power rail, in the Power Supply.

EVERY wire that is Red, is a 5 Volt wire.
ALL Red wires connect to the 5 Volt power rail, in the Power Supply.

The same can be said for All Yellow wires.
ALL Yellow wires are 12 Volt wires.
ALL Yellow 12 Volt wires connect to the 12 Volt power rail, in the Power Supply.

IF, just one voltage power rail is weak, the computer will NOT work.

A) If ALL of the LED's were on at once, they would use less than 1 Watt of power.

B) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts of power.

C) A typical Processor (CPU) can use 51 to 130 Watts of power.
Just depends on what CPU (Processor) it is.

[LED = Light Emitting Diode. It is redundant to refer to it as an LED light. That is saying it is a Light Emitting Diode light ]

That is why you may see LED's light, and maybe fans spin, but no computer working.
NOT enough power to turn the Processor (CPU) on...........

[Just in case you get this far, and this happens]

http://www.directron.com/atxswitch.html

The above ATX power on switch, is used in a LOT of desktop computers.

The Power On button is an assembly. it has the Power On switch, inside it.

I am trying to hook up to my new comp. and new internet and the lights come on for the wireless, wired and router r green then the modem light is red, what am i doing wrong


There is nothing wrong with your modem. There are modems that when you turn it on, the wireless, dsl lights are green while the power light is red then after a few seconds, the green lights disappear and the red light will turn green. After sometime green light will come back on. This means your modem is restarting and doing a self check.
If the power light stays red, then you a have a problem with your modem.

Make sure your cables are all firmly connected. Also check the power strip or surge protector. If all is connected well and the pc will still not turn on it looks like the problem is the power supply unit, which can be replaced for around $20. I hope this works :).

On and off at what rate? Every few seconds? Every few hours?

Does it cause the internet light on the modem to go off, or just the internet connection in the computer?

If you're using it wirelessly, what adapter in the computer? How far is the computer from the router?

(The router should work with any broadband modem.)

Belkin Wireless Modem Router problem


well, first of all the i also have the N1 belkin wireless modem router, in order for it to connect, there has to be a wireless connection in your area for you to connect to, if any of your neighbors so have wireless you can connect to their network, but if you are not getting a conection that means no one around you has wireless or lan, the belkin wireless is not a internet provider it just extends the distance of your internal wireless. some networks may be secured as well, sometimes you can only connect to unsecured networks unless you have the name and passcode for the secured network.

I have set up my N1 Belkin Wireless modem router and the wired PC works fine, but i am not able to connect to the router through any of my wirelss devices, it tells me there is no signal being received....


Did you check how powerful the router is? How strong the receiver is? That is why you are not getting a signal. Also if you go to the connections you can search for wireless connections that the receiver can see.

Hope This Helps
All The Best,
