5 year old Medion Computer - Med MT247A - now running very slow with weak wireless signal

Hi there!

I have recently set my old (ish) Median computer to run wirelessly, although my laptop has a good signal strnegth and is quick, the MEdian has very low/weak signal and is painfully slow. Is there an upgrade or dongle I can by to help?

The computer over the last 6 months has also got very slow starting programmes and starting up - can you suggest some actions to speed it up to what it shpuld be again?

Thanks for any help you can give me!

The most common reason for slow processing speed is insufficient RAM memory.

Increase the RAM, if RAM available is no more than 512MB, then it must be upgraded.

Check also your hard drive state. If you have less than 1GB free, that will slow down the system. Go to Start>>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Defregmenter and do a Defrag of the hard disk.

If you have at least 1 GB RAM, and you took care of the hard drive, then you can check the process starting up on their own and remove the useless one, or spot mala-ware that can affect speed. You can use a software like Hijack This, and search on google te function of each process started on the list reported by the software.

You can download Hijack this here MajorGeeks | If download does not start, then click at the top of the page, where it says Click Here If It Does Not.
Be careful if you delete the wrong files using this software you can harm the system, and Windows may not work properly.

If you think you have malaware you can also install Spy Bot, and do a system scan. Download Spybot from The home of Spybot.

If all the above does not work, and there is no malaware, then you usually reinstall the system.

Check also the bios settings, BIOS can downgrade the CPU speed on default , even if this is uncommon on recent BIOS.

If a computer is still slow with a fresh system and enough resources then it is one of those rare occasions when you have an hardware fault.
Hardware that can cause slow down is: RAM CPU Motherboard HD Video card.

Some tips on procedure can damage your windows installation. Do not download Hijackthis software and do not change BIOS settings and do not touch hardware unless you are sure of what you are doing.

Where can I find a driver for Medion wireless keyboard SK7225(K)?


On the disk that came with the keyboard.
When you don't have a disk you could try it here:
MEDION UK Driver
But be aware when you have an older keyboard, bought with compatible with Windows XP, not even Median will help you.
Since Windows 7 all drivers need certification from Microsoft. They only certify drivers when they meet the specs Microsoft is dictating. So for older devices, there are no drivers, because nobody wants to make drivers for already sold gear. I hope you find what you want with Median, but I'm afraid you won't.
Nobody told you, you should buy new accessories after you updated to Windows 7 (or more)

Computer switching off


If you brought the machine to me, the very first thing I'd is open the case and look inside. The most common cause of system shutdown is overheating, either due to fan failure or a dirty machine. Dirt is the enemy of the PC> If there is a failed CPU fan, or the CPU heat sink is totally clogged with dirt, then I would recommend getting a can of dust remover (canned air) at your local big box store and clean out the PC, then try again. Do not remove the CPU heat sink to clean it unless you have replacement thermal paste to reinstall it! You can usually clean it sufficiently wit the canned air.
