Have you tried using a can of compressed air (Yes i know it sounds funny) to blow out all the accumulated dust from inside the machine away

Could be some of your drivers needing updated.Although you may not get any problems in device manager it does not mean there are no updates.

Try the Medion Site to find out.

Not sure where the hard drive is on a medion but the grand daughter had a faulty hard drive on her laptop and and you could feel the heat coming from it when placing your hand on the cover underneath.Mind you not sure if that was normal or not.
