    Help Medion 97409 P6625 laptop Stuck on median logo during boot

    My Median laptop is stuck on the Median logo and if left on long enough, it starts to over heat with the fans kicking.

    Can anyone advise what the fault could be?

    Any help is greatly appreciated

    could do with more information mate, has it been dropped, kicked or generally knocked about at any point recently?

    Do you have any diagnostics built in (similar to dell machines?) that you could run at startup?

    Can you take the HDD out and see if boots any further? same with the RAM if it has 2 sticks, take 1 out, boot, see what happens, if no change then swap it with the other one and see if it gets any further, if only 1 then take it out and see if the laptop complains or it sticks on the same screen?

    if you can then go into the bios, reset it to defaults and see if that has any effect

    Do you use it on a hard surface generally or do you have it on a cover (duvet, blanket etc.) that may have caused it to overheat originally?

    im sure someone else will chime in with some advice for you mate but that is where i would start

And with any luck he'll drown in the undershit of that wave. Shitwaves.

    Unfortunately no diagnostics or bios keys are shown just the initial boot logo. Key pressing the usually bios keys does nothing. Just get error beep for pressing too many keys.

    I have moved both memory sticks and switched on - fans are still going but blank screen (Red led on front)
    Same fault as above with single memory
    Same fault as above with single memory swapped slots

    I have removed the HD with both memory still in and the still stuck on Median logo with fans going (Initial fault)
    Single memory with HD removed and same fault as above

    All components back as they were and without power lead - results laptop stays on with initial fault then after about 2 mins, self shuts-down

    Hope this helps

    Thanks for trying that out mate, have you tried it without the battery in?
    Take out Mains lead, remove battery, plug the mains back in, turn it on and see what it does

    My view is the hard drive is dead. Do you have another hard drive you can try in it.
    If it POST 's but gets no further I'd bet its hard drive related.

    agree if none of this gets anywhere then he needs to try it in a caddy and see if it can still be read or try a different hdd

    I have checked the Hdd in a caddy connected to Mac and it seems to read all files no issues.

    I tried the caddy Hdd in the laptop and still in initial fault state

    Any help is greatly appreciated

    sorry mate, couldnt reply before now, from what you have tried I am guessing that the problem is worse than I originally thought, you could try using RAM from a completely different laptop to rule that out 100% but your unlikely to have the correct modules available (and it would be unusual for both of yours to break at the same time) so I am leaning towards the problem being with your motherboard in the laptop.

    I have had a similar scenario before with a laptop and it turned out that the fans were not working the way they should (but were still working) and the CPU overheated, the laptop would boot to the logo screen but would go no further, as a guess its possible something similar has happened to yours.

    anyone else got any advice?

    As seeing that you've tried all the regular stuff the next step for me would be a bios reset ... strip the bugger and pop the bios battery out and hold the power button for 30 seconds with no charger or main battery attached

    If it's a soldered battery you can try to find the clear CMOS pads, may be labelled as reset, BIOS or some random number. I'd try removing the HDD, inserting a bootable CD and see if that boots but by the sounds of it the problem isn't the HDD. If you have any external devices connected, remove them.

    Disconnect the keyboard also and boot, as a stuck key can also cause this issue, also some laptops have a single hidden ram module under the keyboard, be sure to test that as well.
    When you turn the laptop on and the "median" logo appears, press the tab key to reveal the post screen as that will give u a good idea of the error

    I have stripped the laptop and replaced the battery bios battery for added measure - (also vac cleaned fans, cleaned cpu and applied new thermal paste) put it back together and noticed that the laptop is in same condition. the only different thing is that the F1 and F12 bios options are visible at boot logo, but pressing the respective keys doesn't make any difference.

    The motherboard is a Pegatron H36T rev 2.3.

    Another fault with it now it does not power up - just used up the charged battery (Oh what fun) - Checked the cables inside and nothing obvious.

    Any help is greatly appreciated

    Unfortunately, adaptor lights up but nothing on the laptop. I will have to a meter on it to see where power is failing. Tried with and without battery
