4. Setting up the PC
Setting up your PC correctly goes a long way towards ensuring comfortable operation.
4.1. Installation location
•
•
Keep your PC and all connected devices away from moisture and avoid dust, heat and direct sunlight. This will help to
avoid malfunctions or damage to the PC.
Place all devices onto a stable, flat and vibration-free surface and only operate them on this type of surface in order to prevent the PC malfunctioning.
4.2. Environmental requirements
•
•
•
•
The PC can be operated at ambient temperatures of +10°C to +35°C and a relative humidity of 30%–70% (non-condensing).
When switched off, the PC can be stored at temperatures from -20 °C bis 50 °C.
Pull out the mains plug during thunder storms and, in particular, remove the aerial cable (if present). For extra safety, we
recommend using an overvoltage protection device to prevent the PC from sustaining damage as a result of power surges
or lightning strikes.
After transporting the PC, wait until the device has reached ambient temperature before switching it on. Large changes in
temperature or fluctuations in humidity can cause moisture build-up within the PC due to condensation. This can cause an
electrical short circuit.
4.3. Ergonomics
PLEASE NOTE!
Avoid dazzle, reflections and strong bright-dark contrast in order to protect your eyes.
The monitor should never be placed next to a window because this is the brightest part of the room during daylight. This
brightness can make it more difficult for the eyes to adjust to the darker monitor.
Always place the monitor so that the direction of vision is parallel to the window front (see image).
This parallel direction of vision should also be maintained in relation to any artificial lighting equipment. In other words, the
same criteria and principles apply where the workspace is illuminated with artificial light.
Where it is not possible to position the monitor as described, the following measures may be useful:
• rotating, lowering or tilting the monitor;
• using slats or vertical blinds on the windows;
• using partitions or changing the direction of the light source.
PLEASE NOTE!
Take regular breaks when working at your monitor to prevent tenseness and fatigue.
6 of 34
Sitting for long periods without changing your position can be uncomfortable. To minimise the risks of physical discomfort or
damage, correct posture is paramount.
• General – Alter your position frequently (every 20–30 minutes) and take frequent breaks to avoid fatigue.
• Back – When sitting at your workplace, the backrest of the office chair should be upright or tilted slightly backwards to
supported your back.
• Arms – Your arms and elbows should be relaxed and loose. Keep your elbows tucked in next to your body. Keep your forearms and hands almost parallel to the floor.
• Wrists – When working with the keyboard, mouse or trackball, your wrists should be kept as straight as possible and
should not be bent at an angle greater than 10°.
• Legs – Your thighs should lie horizontally or be tilted slightly upwards. Your lower legs should kept at an angle of approximately 90° to your thighs. Your feet should rest flat on the floor. Where possible, use a footrest, otherwise, ensure that the
seat is adjusted to the correct height before starting work.
• Head – Your head should be kept straight or inclined slightly forward. Do not work with your head or upper body twisted.
•

The top line of the screen should be at eye height or a little below.
5. Connecting
For better orientation, please open out the left-hand inside cover page to fully display the diagrams showing the positions of
the connections described.
PLEASE NOTE!
The devices listed are not necessarily supplied! The connections listed are optional and are not necessarily present
on your PC.
5.1. Connecting the cables
Follow the instructions below to connect your PC correctly and safely:
• Position the cable so that it cannot be stepped on or tripped over.
• To avoid damaging the cable, do not place any objects on it.
• Do not expose plug connections to impacts/pressure, e.g. from lateral forces. This could cause internal and external damage to the device.
• Do not apply force when connecting cables and plugs and make sure that connectors are the right way round.
• When you disconnect a cable from your device, pull it out by holding the plug and not the cable.
• In order to prevent short-circuits and cable breaks, do not crush or bend cables.
• Connect peripheral devices, such as keyboards, mouse and monitor, etc., only when the PC is switched off to avoid damage
to the PC or the devices. Some devices may also be connected while the PC is running.
This is often the case for USB devices. In all cases, ensure that the information provided in the relevant operating instructions is observed.
• Maintain a distance of at least one metre from sources of high-frequency and magnetic interference (TV sets, loudspeakers, mobile phones, DECT telephones, etc.) in order to avoid malfunctions and data loss.
• Please note that only shielded cables that are shorter than 3 metres may be connected to the external interfaces of this PC.
Please only use double-shielded cables for printer cable connections.
• Do not exchange the supplied cable for another one. Use only the supplied cable as this cable has been extensively tested
in our laboratory.
• When connecting your periphery devices, also ensure that you only use the connection cables supplied with those devices.
• Ensure that all connection cables are connected to their corresponding periphery device to avoid any interference radiation. Disconnect any cables that are not required.
• The only devices which may be connected to the PC are those which meet the requirements set out in the EN60950 standard “Information Technology Equipment – Safety” or the EN60065 standard “Audio, video and similar electronic apparatus –
Safety requirements”.

•
During the first few hours of use, new products may give off a characteristic but totally harmless smell. This is unavoidable
and disappears over time.
To help reduce the amount of odour build-up, we recommend that you ventilate the room at regular intervals. We have
taken appropriate measures during the development of this product to ensure that levels are well below legal limits.
PLEASE NOTE!
The devices listed are not necessarily supplied. You only need to connect those components you intend to operate
on your PC. If you do not have the device described, you can skip the point in question or carry it out later, as required.
5.2. Opening and closing the front panel (optional)
Some connections are located behind the front panel. This offers the advantage of making it quick and easy to connect frequently used devices without having to turn the PC around. The closable panel also protects the connections.
5.3. Connecting the microphone (optional)
 Connect a microphone to the pink socket using a 3.5 mm mono jack plug.
 Position the microphone so that it does not point directly at the speakers. This prevents acoustic feedback (perceptible by
a loud whistling).
5.4. Connecting SATA devices (optional)
eSATA stands for “external Serial ATA” and is a connection for external hard drives. Compared with the conventional USB
standard, the transfer speed with an eSATA connection is higher than with external USB hard drives.
PLEASE NOTE!
In order to prevent damage to the contacts, make sure that the plug and the socket fit together perfectly. Due to
its asymmetric form, the plug will only fit into the socket in one position.
 Plug the cable into the eSATA socket on the front of your PC.
5.4.1. Disconnecting SATA Devices
 Before disconnecting a SATA hard drive from your PC, click the Safely remove hardware icon in the task bar below and
then click on the hard drive to be removed.
5.5. Connecting USB devices (optional)
CAUTION!
Do not connect your USB devices until you have finished the initial setup of your new PC. This will prevent any unnecessary interference during the installation. These devices can generally be connected while the PC is running.
Please refer to the operating manual for your peripheral device.
• The PC’s USB voltage outputs are protected by a fuse (limited power source in accordance with EN60950). This ensures that
peripheral devices connected using the sockets in question cannot be damaged in the event of a technical fault with the PC.
You will usually have several connection sockets available that you can use as desired.
PLEASE NOTE!
In order to prevent damage to the contacts, make sure that the plug and the socket fit together perfectly. Due to
its asymmetric form, the plug will only fit into the socket in one position.
 Plug the device (printer, scanner, camera, etc.) into the appropriate socket.
PLEASE NOTE!
Where possible, always connect your devices to the same port that they were originally installed on. Otherwise
they will be assigned a new ID and the drivers will need to be reinstalled.

9. The hard drive
The hard drive is your main memory medium and combines high storage capacity with rapid data access.
Your PC is supplied with an OEM version* of the Microsoft Windows® operating system which supports all of the PC’s performance features. We have configured your PC’s hard drive so that you will be able to work with it optimally without having to
install any additional drivers yourself.
The Windows® operating system requires part of the capacity to manage the hard drive therefore the hard drive’s full capacity is not available. This explains any differences between the UEFI display and the operating system display. The PC’s operating
system, other applications and security data are located on the hard drive, therefore the full capacity is already reduced.
PLEASE NOTE!
Never try to switch off the PC while it is accessing the hard drive as this can result in data loss.
The first partition (C:\) contains the operating system, the applications and the “Documents” folder for the configured user.
The second partition (D:\) is used for the data backup and also contains drivers
(D:\Drivers) and utilities (D:\Tools) for your PC.
PLEASE NOTE!
The startup files for system restoration and the Windows® 8 installation files are located in non-rewritable partitions. These partitions are not visible and cannot be deleted.

9.3. Connecting an external hard drive (optional)
Your PC has a slot which allows you to connect the MEDION HDDrive2Go super speed external hard drive quickly and easily
via the USB 3.0 port.
As with a USB memory stick, the connection can be made while the operating system is running. The hard drive is then automatically detected as removable storage and is assigned a drive letter.
PLEASE NOTE!
Please note that only the above-mentioned Medion hard drive may be plugged into the hard drive slot.
This slot is only compatible with the Medion HDDrive 2 Go super speed hard drives. All other former generation
HDDrive 2Go hard drives cannot be used!
Medion HDDrive 2Go super speed hard drives are not supplied.
As soon as the hard drive is plugged into the hard drive slot, your PC will recognise it as removable storage.
CAUTION!
To protect the connections, the plugs are fitted with dust covers which must be removed prior to
use. When not in use, the covers must always be refitted.
The Medion HDDrive 2Go super speed hard drive is available in the following sizes:
• Medion HDDrive 2Go super speed 6.35 cm/2.5" USB 3.0 hard drive and

10. The optical drive (optional)
10.1. Load disc
CAUTION!
Do not use scratched, broken, dirty or poor quality discs. Do not stick protective film or other adhesive labels to the discs. The high speeds in the drive can cause these to break destroying your data
and damaging your device. Inspect discs carefully before inserting them. If damage or dirt is visible,
do not use the disc. Damage caused by faulty media is not covered under warranty and repairs will
be chargeable.
 Press the eject button on the optical drive to open the drawer.
 Insert the disc into the drawer, label up, so that it lies flat.
 Check that the disc can turn freely and then carefully slide the drawer back into the optical drive until it clicks into place.
On delivery, your optical drive is assigned the drive letter “E”. You can easily access the data on your discs using Windows
Explorer (Computer). Run Windows Explorer using the shortcut on the taskbar or by simultaneously pressing the Windows

16 of 34
10.2. Playing/reading discs
PLEASE NOTE!
Many discs run automatically when they are inserted. This depends on the operating system and the relevant settings.
Your PC is capable of playing audio CDs, DVD movies or data discs from the optical drive.
Once a disc has been loaded, a dialogue box opens containing various playback options. Normally, there will be a number of
different options available.
Playback of DVD film titles includes decoding MPEG2 video, digital AC3 audio data and decoding CSS-protected content. CSS
(sometimes also referred to as Copy Guard) is the name of a data protection program used by the film industry to protect
against illegal copying. Among the many controls for CSS licensees, the most important of the playback restrictions involve
country-specific content. To make it easier to create geographically separate film releases, DVD titles are coded for specific regions. Copyright laws required that each DVD film be limited to a specific region (usually the region where it is sold). DVD film
versions can be published in multiple regions but CSS rules require that each CSS decoder system may only be used for one
region.
CAUTION!
The region setting can be changed up to five times via the viewing software before the last setting
becomes permanent. If you then wish to change the region setting again, this must be carried out by
the manufacturer. Any shipping and configuration costs must be borne by the user.
10.3. Blank CDs and DVDs
Normal CDs are pressed by a glass master and then sealed. With blank discs, digital information is burned onto them using the
drive’s laser. They are therefore more sensitive then conventional discs.
Because of this, it is essential to avoid, particularly in the case of unused blanks:
• exposure to direct sunlight (UVA/UVB radiation)
• scratches and damage
• extreme temperatures
10.3.1. Important information about high-resolution video formats (optional)
Depending on the model, your system may come with a Blu-ray drive.
The Blu-ray drive uses a technology that supports high-resolution video formats. You can still play the following media using
your drive:
• Audio CDs
• CD-R
• CD-RW
• DVD+R/DVD-R
• DVD+RW/DVD-RW
To be able to play back the new video format and new media (Blu-ray discs), the following prerequisites must also be met:
PLEASE NOTE!
Windows Media Player does not support any high-resolution video formats.
•
•
The playback software must be updated via the Internet at regular intervals to ensure it can always play back the latest titles. The update intervals will be specified by the software providing there is an Internet connection.
When connecting to a digital output sources (e.g. TFT monitor or LCD TV), the connections (DVI or HDMI) must support the
HDCP standard. You can find this information in the operating instructions for your output device.

WARNING!
Excessive volume when using headphones or earphones can damage your hearing. Before
pressing play, set the volume to the lowest setting. Start playback and increase the volume
to a comfortable level. Changing the basic settings of the equaliser can also increase the volume and thus cause permanent damage to your hearing. Changing the drivers, software,
equaliser, operating system, etc., can also lead to an increase in the volume and thus cause
permanent damage to your hearing.
Listening to a device at high volumes for an extended period via headphones/earphones can
damage your hearing.
14. IEEE 1394 (FireWire) (optional)
The IEEE 1394 connection, also known as iLink® or FireWire, is a serial bus standard for the rapid transfer of digital TV/video, PC
and audio data.
14.1. Possible uses for IEEE 1394
•
•
•
Connection of digital entertainment devices, such as: set top boxes, digital video recorders and camcorders, digital versatile discs (DVDs), televisions, etc.
Multimedia applications and video editing.
Input and output devices such as printers, scanners, etc.
14.2. Technical specifications
•
•
•
•
Depending on the application, the maximum data transfer rate is 100, 200 or 400 Mbit/s which represents a data throughput of up to 50 MB per second.
The devices can be connected and removed while the machine is running (hot plugging).
The standardised cable (shielded twisted pair – STP) contains 6 wires. Two wires are used for power (8 V to 40 V, 1.5 A max.)
and can be used for the external power supply. The four signal wires are used to transfer data and control information.
Many devices do not need power via the cable so four pin plugs are used.
The voltage output in the 6-pin IEEE 1394 connection is protected by a fuse (limited power source in accordance with
EN60950).
15. USB connection (optional)
PLEASE NOTE!
Devices connected directly to the USB BUS may not draw more than 500 mA. The voltage output is protected by a
fuse (limited power source in accordance with EN 60950). If the devices require a higher output, then it will be necessary to purchase a hub (distributor/booster).
Up to 127 devices compatible with the USB standard can be connected to the sockets for USB (Universal Serial Bus 1.1 and
2.0). The USB 3.0 sockets are fully backwards compatible with USB 2.0 and 1.1.
PLEASE NOTE!
Where possible, always connect your USB devices to the same port that they were originally installed on. Otherwise they will be assigned a new ID and the drivers will need to be reinstalled.
* device-dependent
19 of 34
16. The TV card (optional)
To receive a TV signal using the TV tuner, an analogue aerial, DVB-T aerial or a digital SAT* system must be connected.
CAUTION!
Disconnect the aerial when the device is not being used, especially during thunderstorms. This will
protect your device from possible lightning strikes.
Audio or video recordings require a lot of memory (up to approx. 2.4 GB/hour). Back up any non-necessary files onto external media such as CD-Rs or hard drives.
17. Networking
Your PC is provided with a Fast Ethernet-Network connector.
17.1. What is a network?
We talk about a network when several PC’s are connected to one another.
This allows users to transfer information and data from PC to PC and to share their resources (printers, modem and drives).
Here are a few concrete examples:
• In an office messages are exchanged by e-mail and appointments are managed centrally.
• Users share one printer on the network and back up their data to a central computer (server).
• Two or more PCs are connected to one another to play network games or exchange data.
17.2. Wireless LAN (wireless network)
Your PC is equipped with WLAN. The components (module, aerials) are already built into your PC and enabled. You can disable
this function using the Windows® device manager if required.
Wireless LAN enables you to establish a network connection to a corresponding remote station.
17.2.1. Security notice
CAUTION!
Do not operate your PC’s wireless LAN function in areas where there are radio-sensitive devices (e.g.
in hospitals, etc.). If you are unsure whether the use of these devices will result in damage or interference, disable this option.
17.2.2. Requirements
A so-called LAN access point can be used as a remote station. An access point is a radio-transmitting device that communicates with your PC and controls access to the connected network. LAN access points are frequently found in large offices, airports, train stations, universities and Internet cafés. They provide access to particular services and networks or to the Internet.
Access permissions are generally necessary and often result in usage charges. Access points often have built-in DSL modems.
These so-called routers establish the connection to the existing DSL Internet connection and the wireless LAN. A connection
can also be established without an access point to another end device with wireless LAN functionality. Without a router, however, the network is restricted to those devices directly connected to it.
The wireless network connection works in accordance with the IEEE 802.11n standard** and is compatible with the IEEE
802.11b/g standard. Other standards (802.11a etc.) are not supported.
If encryption is used for the transfer, the same procedure must be used for all devices. Encryption is a procedure to protect the
network from unauthorised access.
The transfer speed can vary depending on the distance and the number of users accessing the remote station.
* The optional SAT socket on your PC is a DVB-S2 socket for high-resolution satellite TV reception. This only enables playback of released and unencrypted
programs.
** To make use of the full performance, a WLAN router compatible with the 802.11n standard is required.

You can start programs from the taskbar at the bottom of the screen and switch between programs already running. In Windows® 8 you can place any program onto the taskbar, so that you can always open it with a single click. You can also rearrange
the icons on the taskbar by simply clicking on them and dragging them to the desired position. Move the mouse pointer over
the icons and thumbnails of each file or each window open in that program will be displayed. If you move the mouse pointer over the thumbnail, a full screen preview of the window in question appears. When you move the mouse pointer away from
the thumbnail again, the full screen preview closes.

18.3.3. Jump lists
Jump lists offer a practical way of calling up recently opened files. To display the recently used files, simply right-click on the
application icon in the taskbar. Thus if you right-click on the Word icon, the recently used Word documents are displayed. You
can also easily place other files you wish to have easily to hand in the jump list so that they are always displayed. This allows
you to access documents that you use frequently in just a few mouse clicks.
The jump lists for certain programs such as Windows® Media Player can be populated in advance with frequently used commands. Thus, for example, you will see options to play all music or to reopen the last playlist in the jump list for Windows® 8
Media Player.
The frequently visited and last visited websites are displayed in the jump list for Internet Explorer. This therefore allows you
to quickly access commands for certain programs that could previously only be called up from the program itself, such as the
command to compose a new e-mail message.
18.3.4. Improved desktop
Windows® 8 simplifies working with windows on the desktop. You therefore have more intuitive options for opening and closing, changing sizes and rearranging.
Windows® 8 makes completing everyday tasks even simpler. The locking function (snaps) makes it easier to compare two open
windows, for example. You do not need to manually adjust the size of the opened windows for the comparison. Simply drag
the window to one of the screen margins using the mouse and it will fill half of the screen.
Click the window’s title bar, “shake” it and all other opened windows are displayed as icons on the task bar. “Shake” the window
once more and the other windows are displayed again.
18.3.5. Better device management
Windows® 8 allows you to connect, manage and use all devices via the central “Devices” function.
All devices are shown in a central location.
With the new “Device Stage” technology, however, Windows® 8 goes one step further with device management. Device Stage
helps you when using all compatible devices that are connected to the computer. Thanks to Device Stage you can now display
the device status and perform frequently used commands within a single window. Here you will even find images of the devices so you can easily see which devices are connected. The device manufacturers can even adjust Device Stage. For example,
if your camera manufacturer releases an updated version of Device Stage, you can see details such as the number of photos
on the camera and get links to useful information when you connect the camera to your PC.
18.3.6. Home Group
With home network groups, a Windows® 8 function, connecting home computers is child’s play. A home network group is set
up automatically when you connect the first PC running Windows® 8 to the home network. Adding additional PCs running
Windows® to the home network group can be done very quickly. You can specify precisely what should be shared on each PC
with all other PCs in the home network group. Sharing files on the various home PCs – and on many other devices – is then as
easy as if all the data were located on a single hard drive. Thus, you can save digital photos on the computer in the study and
then access them easily on a laptop in any other room. Similarly, the printer in the study is automatically shared among all PCs
in the house once they are part of the home network group.
18.4. Overview
The greatest innovation in Windows® 8 is the Start screen. This key element replaces the Start menu in Windows® 8.
Here you can run all the main programs and services.
As with previous versions, operation is by inputting commands using the mouse or keyboard.
The Start screen can be opened at any time using the
(Win) key. This key also allows you to switch back and forth between
the Start screen and an active application. To switch to an application other than the last one opened, press the Win+Tab keyboard shortcut.
A key element of the Start screen is the tiles which each represent an application or function. They are shown in blocks and
you can define the number of blocks and their columns yourself.
Drag & drop the tiles to the desired position using the mouse.

21. Customer service
21.1. First aid in the case of hardware problems
Malfunctions can sometimes have quite trivial causes, but they may also be the result of defective components. We have included a brief troubleshooting guide below which may help to solve any problems.
If these tips don’t do the trick, then we’ll be more than pleased to help you out. Just give us a call!
21.2. Find the cause
Start by carefully checking all the cable connections. If the indicator lamps are not on, ensure that the PC and all peripheral
devices are connected to the power supply.
• Check the plug, power cable and all switches in the socket circuit.
• Turn off the PC and check all cable connections. If the PC is connected to peripheral devices, check all cable connections.
Do not swap around the cables for the various devices, even if they look alike. The polarity of the various cables may be different. Once you have ensured that the device is powered and all connections are intact, then switch the PC back on.
21.3. Faults and possible causes
The screen is black.
 Check that the PC has not gone into hibernation.
Cards in the card reader are assigned a different drive letter after rebooting.
 This can happen when the card reader updates its slot during system start up. New IDs may then be assigned which can
lead to different drive letters for some cards.
No data can be read by the optical drive.
 Check whether the disc has been inserted correctly.
Mouse does not work.
 Check the cable connection.
Insufficient hard disk space.
 Audio or video recordings require a lot of storage space (up to approx. 1.2 GB/hour) Backup any unnecessary files to CD-Rs,
DVDs or other external media, e.g. the MEDIONHDDrive 2Go super speed hard drive.
The PC does not boot.
 If all the cable connections are correct, try resetting the PC mains adapter. Set the power switch on the back of the PC to
the 0 position (OFF). Then hold down the main switch on the front for 10 seconds. Wait another 5 seconds and restart the
PC.
Apps (e.g. the weather app) can not be displayed as live tiles.
 Check the date, time zone and time.
21.4. Do you need more help?
You’ve checked through the suggestions in the previous section and you’re still having problems with your device? Then call
the hotline in the country where you purchased your PC. You can find the relevant telephone numbers on the inside cover of
these operating instructions.
We will try to help you over the telephone. Before contacting us, however, prepare the following information:
• Have you made any upgrades or modifications to the initial configuration?
• What peripheral devices do you use?
• What messages, if any, appear on the screen?
• What software were you using when the problem occurred?
• What steps have you already taken to try and
rectify the problem?
21.5. Driver support
The system has been thoroughly and successfully tested with the installed drivers in our test laboratory. It is normal in the
computer sector, however, for the drivers to need updating from time to time.
This is because there may be compatibility problems with other components (programs, devices) which have not yet been
tested.
You can find current drivers on the Internet at the following address: www.medion.com.
21.6. Transport
