I have a Medion PC bought at Aldi Aug06so far it worked perfectly used fairly hardon Sun last it just would not switch on amI kept pressing the Start button from time to timeduring the day - sometimes it would react for 2 seconds but would not starton Monday it started and worked all day today it will not start againwhat could be the reason please ?
Sounds like your PSU have died.
Ooops - has (not have) ...
Technotiger - thank youwould that not prevent any restarting ?PSU = power supply Unit ?the power is on a common split lead to PC and MonitorMonitor works OK
The PSU does not power the monitor, so a dud PSU would not make any difference to the monitor.
Aldi is three year warranty, So why not ring Medion
Technotiger - I meant power gets to the PC on the common power cableif PSU fails, would that not prevent the PC working the next day ? or is it just on/off failure ?
PSU's just stop working. Light on the front working does not mean a thing
woodchip - I rang them - they suggested a motherboard failureI just wanted to have a better idea of what may be involved
A mobo failure is not impossible, but if DIY then PSU is easiest to sort out.However, if Medion will sort it out under the warranty, that would be the best idea.
Power only gets to the PC via the PSU in the PC's case. Dead or dying PSU's can still provide some power, but not enough to run the PC.
