Having problems with your Medion M3 Director 5100 PC Desktop ?

Medion's Dark screen

\015 The Medion monitor just doesn't want to come up. The PC is ok, I could attach a different monitor to it and everything is good. \015\012The peculiar with the monitor is that it got into this state progressively. It started having its own mind months ago. Initially, it was late showing live screen for a few minutes after power-up, then the delay grew to hours and right now it is ever dark. Its blue power LED blinks incessantly.\015\012I have a GEForce PCX 5300 card, I've just downloaded/installed the driver recommended by Medion website.\015\012Based on advice I found on this forum I tried to boot up in Safe mode. It didn't help...\015\012\015\012The monitor drives power through a transformer, if that's bad then I wouldn;t get the blinking LED, or...?\015\012\015\012It's a nice 19" monitor, I'd like to get some help before I toss it into my basement. That'd be a shame...\015\012\015\012Thanks for any help I can get\015\012Elizabeth\015

Answers :

Mine has nothing to do with drivers. in fact I disconnected from the computer and it still blinks. I think I know how to fix it... We all should take our "fancy" Medion 7319's and fix it with the "HAMMERS" and NEVER EVER buy this ****........
\015\012I have a small business, and I have 15 computers. 10 of them are Sony SDM-HX93, and the other 5 are this stupid Medions. Guess what? All 5 of them are giving us problems all the time....
Mines the same.
\015\012apparently its a common problem with the capacitors
\015\012as they dont hold a charge.
