Question about Medion MD1917 PC Desktop
Medion desktop does not boot up. powers on and cd rom opens but does not activate monitor, mouse, keyboard etc. Starts to grind as if it is booting windows but not complete start up. The screen remains blank and fan runs but boot up does not continue. If left for 30 minutes nothing happens and fan just continues to run.
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!)

Check first your memory card or RAM card. Reseat it or wipe its edge connector with soft eraser, this will clean its insulation build up in the connector allowing a good contact.
But do this when the power is off and unplugged to the wall socket or disconnect it to the UPS if you have.
If it doesn't power up try to install a good ram spare, could be your ram is failing. If it doesn't boot up. Try to boot your unit at basic setup. To isolate which is making the fault. You gonna have a good spare when doing this.
Hope it is only ram issue.
