Hi bcfc_red_robin, welcome to BC. :thumbsup:
Medion UK offers only one video related driver. (AGP Chipset driver).
I going to assume for now that is what you're needing. In any case, a re-install is not going to hurt anything if it doesn't work.
Go here. Copy and paste your SN# (11326020040163) in the top box and click "search").
At the very top of the list, click "download" next to "AGP Chipset Driver SiS".
Save the file anywhere on your pc, just remember where. :flowers:
Double click the file (chpsis_agp.exe) to unpack it. By default, it will create a "Medion" folder in C:.
When it's done, open windows explorer and navigate to the C:\Medion\Sis AGP [1.17E] folder.
Inside that folder you will see three "setup" files.
Double click the SETUP file listed as a 59KB Application file dated 1-22-98. Follow the prompts to install the driver and reboot.
Let us know how you came out.

EDIT: Please note there is a different set of drivers for PC World PC's. Link is on the same page.

Hi again bcfc_red_robin. You are not a bother. :thumbsup:
This system could have virtually any video configuration.
In your first post you posted the system model only info.
Did you get this from a software utility or from the case?
If you used a utility, there should be some video info collected as well. Please post that if applicable but do not trust it yet.
The only way to be absolutely sure is to remove the cover and get some info.
What we need to know is wether or not it's using a seperate video card or on-board video.
If it is a seperate card, there will be a name and model# on it. You will also see a chipset on the card with the name NVidia, ATI, etc. If it has no seperate video card (you'll know by where your monitor plugs in) then it uses on-board video. On the motherboard you will see a video chip. It will also have a name (most likely SiS) and number as well.
Last but not least, on the motherboard itself, it may say "MS-6719" and ".ver #" right next to it. Please post the version number if you see one. Not picking on your computer but you have sort of a mutt there. :flowers:
