Re: mother boards

Ecs sell laptops that are more often than not just clones of others. The company who produces most of these "clones" is MITAC. ive had many problems with clones in the past. Theyre unreliable badly built with poor quality parts and i would recommend everybody avoids a "bargain laptop"

P 4M800PRO-M V1.0A ECS mother board does not beep ,it gives click sound . but some time it start and run good condition .and next restart ,mother broad doesn't start

Sounds like that board is on its way out. Had a good run too!

I'd seek out a complete system upgrade.

Small things you could try is reseating the RAM and testing it with a new power supply.

Hope this helps!

The "x" key on my Netbook is not working properly - it has to be held down instead of tapped in order to get it working. How do I fix this problem please? Thanks...

It looks like a new keyboard is required.
Check out ebay by inserting the model number and type "Keyboard"
It is a fairly simple job to change just beware of the fragile connector on the mother board. Don't be ashamed to ask a froend for help if you get stuck.
Hope this solves your problem

Tech says i need new motherboard computer won´t turn on

Before you buy a new mother board, (the L300D-13S board is around $185 from China), remove your battery, leave it for about 5 minutes. Use only the Mains power supply and see if it will switch on.
Fit the battery, plug in the Mains Charger and see if the battery charge light comes on. If it does and it won't give you a screen or flash the hard drive light or power up the hard drive, then I am inclined to go along with a replacement Mother Board.
The laptop has to complete the POST and if it doesn't that usually points to Mother Board problems.
Were you trying to upload a newer version of the BIOS before it failed?
Good luck but check ebay and beware there are some really dodgy frauds out there.

I have a Dell Latitude D610. The battery was dead (got the 4 blinking amber lights and the green light flashing once, then cycling), so I replaced the battery. The new battery has the lights on the bottom...

From the description, sounds like you have two failures, both concerning the mother board.

1. The connection to the motherboard for the battery is no longer good. Replace the mother board. The points of failure that you have given so far and has not fixed the issue. Battery fully charged, seated well, no change, mother board.

2. Laptop will come on with AC adapter attached but will not boot up; mother board. There is a built in test that you can run, from a powered down state press FN + Power button, this puts this into a diagnostic state. If it does not go into this diagnostic; mother board. The diagnostic is stored in the BIOS, which is a part of the mother board.

3. If the diagnostic runs note any error codes that it gives. They will be in the form off XXXX-XXXX or XXXX:XXXX, where the X's represent a letter or a number. These can be used for further trouble shooting.

Balance CN1401 tv tuner software

Hmmm... interesting finds for this model. Apparently built buy ECS for Walmart distribution under the name of Balance.

There is no Balance website and no information from ECS. But from what I have gathered this evening, from searching online, it should be the same as the ECS line of laptops from the same time period.

Go here -

Scroll down to model 332 and try the TV driver listed on the bottom of the page. Most of these models from ECS share the same LifeView TV Tuner driver.

I couldn't find any relevant specific information for Balance CN1401. Other than it being an ECS built laptop for Walmart Balance branding. So theoretically, and ECS driver should work. If that one from the 332 doesnt work, then check some of the other models listed.

Is this going to be for Windows or a Linux based operating system?
