Boy do I feel stupid, that is what I should have done from the start. Geese I bet my old board is not doa either. :o . I did as you suggested ken226 and I am back in business, go figure.
Thanks again.

This is a win 7 32 bit system I have been using for a few years, One day my machine just quit running code. The code scrolls, the dro's move but the carriage does not. I have tried almost everything. I thought it was my controller board so I scrapped it(not really I still have it) and went to a 4 individual drivers and those are HY DIV268N drivers and I believe that my new controller card is a JK02 mk5 5 axis control board. I am using a single 24 volt 10 amp power supply. My mach 3 is a licensed copy, and I am using rev3.043.066.  I am almost at my wits end and I come here humbly looking for some assistance. My machine is set up in mm, no exotic screensets, When I changed the drivers I also created a new machine in the Mach startup and started from scratch but alas I still have the same issue. I can jog like a madman but as soon as I select start cycle, the motors make noises but nothing moves except the dro's. Thanks in advance for any assistance anyone can give. I need this machine up and running again for the xmas rush.

Everything else works great just need probing for accuracy. Is the last piece.......ya sure it is......lol

I guess that I should have come back here and posted an update. It is the board that will not allow probing. The good folks at Stepper3 LLC have made an offer to swap out the board for the new one (it does not support probing in Mach3) however as I am not about to spend that kind of money on Mach4 they have now just completed the fix to use the new board with Mach3 and are currently testing. If all goes well the new board and revisions should be out within a week and they have graciously offered to swap out my old board for the new one. AWESOME customer service if I say so myself. Thanks Okiegals for the reply though. Once I have had the new board for a bit I will finish this post off with some information and my thoughts on this new board. Love the old one just can't probe is all.

I am running Mach 3 version 3.043.067, win 7 64bit. With a Mach for win64 kit. I can run my machine just fine. Have working homing switches and a triquetra probe kit. For some reason I cannot get any probing scripts to run. The triquetra script will ask for touch of probe, bit size, and if I want to zero all axis or jut z. No matter which way I select (Z only or all) none of the axis will move to probe. I can use ref all home and that works just fine but no probing scripts. I have tried 9 different scripts located on various support forums and none work. Does anyone have any ideas?  I am about 6000 hairs down and pulling more by the minute. I am thinking this is either a setting issue or perhaps the Mach for win64 kit. Thanks in advance.

Thank you slowpoke and Rich. I think i will take the plunge. I hope to connect mine to my network though rather than direct to the comp.

Sloepoke. I am thinking of buying the same breakout board (mach 4 win 64) you did and i wanted to ask how is it working for  you? Are you connected direct to network port on your comp or through a hub/switch? I am not finding much information on this board but it is supported by Mach 3. Have you discovered what doesnt work with this board yet?
Thanks in advance
