The Newfangled Solutions web site for Mach3 software identifies a system requirement for "Non-integrated Video Card with 32MB RAM".  What are the technical or performance issues with an integrated video card when running Windows 7?

It depends on the architecture of the particular computer (some will work OK whilst others will not thus the recommendation by NFS) but the most common issue, I have found, is program flow (freezing) when running long Gcode files.

Laptop : HP Compaq NC6000 Pentium M
OS :  XP-SP3 .

Could not be  used , not even close , timing all over the place steppers buzzing and humming ...
I turned off everything I could think of , both in the bios and in the OS , no avail , altough I did
get some improvement .  

I was ready to give up and install a desktop , when  I found this thread .
Changed ACPI to std PC and like magic  Smiley
the system is now rock stable .
Big thanks for sharing this information , I would never have found it on my own .
