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"

EC appears and it doesn't draw water


I contacted CE North America customer service regarding this issue for same unit. They suggested disconnecting for 10 minutes, then reconnecting, turning unit on, and changing settings and run fan on HIGH or TURBO until the EC code goes away. This didn't help with my unit. If this doesn't work, there is no repair provided. Customer Service recommended returning unit to purchase location if under warranty (1 year), however a copy of the original purchase receipt is required. Suggest a call to Customer Service Center at 866-915-1212.

Try to use their support as these units were prone to battery and display issues and they will be able to provide support, as they are the manufacturer.

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 - http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/SearchResult.aspx?q=tuner&f=Downloads&MenuID=104&LanID=0

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?
