Question about Medion (MT8381) (40004683) Motherboard

3 Answers

Medion Motherboard Hi, I have recently purchased a secondhand Medion PC. The problem is that the PC won't boot up, or power my Monitor. The graphics card if an Nvidia G-Force 6200, and has a VGA socket and a DVI-I (I think that's what it is) port. There isn't a power connector on the back of the PC for the monitor, so I've plugged the monitor directly into a wall power supply. At first the PC would start, CPU Fan would start whirring but then it would shut off after 3 seconds. At this point there was an intermittent beep coming from the CPU, which is an AMD Athlon 2400. I resat the CPU and now the PC doesn't power itself off, but it still won't power my monitor. Another worrying thing is that the PC doesn't 'beep' at startup like most I've had in the past, nor do I hear the floppy drive looking to boot and the numlock light isn't on. I have systematically removed IDE cables and some of the leads to see if this makes a difference, and removed the bios battery (There is no bios jumper). I am now stuck and don't know what to do. Anyone help!? Please............ Thanks Mezzo

    Nope, that doesn't work. I think the worrying thing is the fact there is no normal boot up activity. The monitor powers up (in the sense of it being powered from the mains). If I unplug the monitor I get a "no signal" message but as soon as I plug into the PC the monitor goes into standby. The PC itself was fine on my old PC.

    I've tried all of the above before my post i.e. Taking out memory, trying a different videocard etc. I had a look at the cpu and the silver conducting paste is dry and cracking.

    Furthermore the cpu itself looks a bit.. well dark around the edges and it looks like theres a tiny chip at the edge of the actual chip (not the housing)!

    Now obviously this could be the problem, but if it was the cpu would the pc power up at all!?

    Thanks so far

I had this problem with my Medion... what model is yours? The beeping is a code and indicates what the problem is. I called Medion support ant they asked me how many beeps and all that... they determined that the motherboard was toast and replaced it under warranty.

If you cannot reach the BIOS settings screen at power-up, then try another known-good is likely dead.

    ok, now try removing the memory chips...a normal startup for this can get you to the BIOS screen. If this does not work, then try another video card and if still nothing, then your mobo or the BIOS is toast.

    So, after a while, did you ever get to try my suggestion:

    >>i see you did not lock your rating were my comments not helpful at all?

    no, if the cpu is dead, the pc will not power up. Also, I think the tiny chip is not a factor...the wire bonding takes place farther to the center of the chip body. You can always monitor the DC supply (3V or 5V) with an oscilloscope and watch for changes in value or any telltale signs of bad power suppply. At least now I got a "thanks for trying"...thanks.

Medion MIM 2310 Monitor not working

it sounds like there is a short on your motherboard.your graphics card might be bad.or lcd screen.when you hook up a external monitor do you wait till everything is booted.wait 5 min then hook up the crt monitor.hold down fn then the button with the monitors.if none of this works then your graphics card is going bad.if it keeps restarting then there is a chipset problem or a bet is to get a new the harddrive and the ram,cd player, can sell these or buy the same type of laptop.and use these parts.

Medion desktop does not boot up, screen blank.

Had same sounding problem with a Medion PC myself. I don't know the cause exactly but the fix I have is this:
Switch off PC, switch off PSU and unplug the power cable from the PC. Then press the power button on your PC. You may see lights and fans start up for just a brief second. This is because there was still charge in the PSU's capacitors which we needed to clear out.

You can now plug the power cable back in, switch on the PSU and turn your PC on.

(I realise this is too late for the original poster's uses but others may find it useful when searching for a problem!)

Pc will not boot up

Could very well be the power supply. The +12V rail may still be live (hence the fans running), but the others may be down (meaning you won't get a beep signal if the memory modules are removed and the computer restarted).

Medion PC model MD 1777 wabout 4 yrs old will not start/boot up. Blue light just flickers continusly and makes a tapping sound.

Remove any disk inserted n your computer (floppy or cd) and try again.
Check the cables connection and monitor connection.
If no boot, try boot your PC using the CD restore provided with your machine
