General Mach Discussion / Was working but suddenly quit
« on: July 24, 2012, 09:25:52 PM »
I setup a new computer for CNC exclusively for 3 axis mill (I tried a Dell with intigrated video and will not work for Mach 3). I am running version R1.83.027 (I bought 6 years ago before heart attack). The specs are much more than required - 3.2G CPU, 2G ram, 1333 buss, AGP video, SMART Hard drive at 7200 RPM.
I set the ports and motor run and everything was sweet using a 0.5000 mill, except it didn't compensate for mill diameter - I added markers to the motors and it ran absolute dimensions without compensating for mill diameter (I am benchtesting before installing). I checked the tool table and verified mill dimensions and wear dimensions, then tried to use a 0.625 mill which I will be using, and it would not accept the tool info at all, and now nothing works - no jog when I use TAB key to bring up the display, and the keyboard arrows and PG up/Pg dn is not operating the motors either, which all was working before. - numbers move in the display but motors do not. There is a signal to the BOB but no CNC control or step signal.
I tried to install the demo to try it and the same problem. Did I make a mistake adding the new demo in addition to the 1.83.027 version??
Would I need to format the hard drive to correct the printer port problem, or are there other problems????
I am East of Pittsburgh PA. Anyone near by??

General Mach Discussion / Intigrated video
« on: July 22, 2012, 11:48:12 PM »
I just setup a computer with intigrated video. Is there anything I can do to get the system working??

I have more than enough ram, CPU, buss, and missed the requirement for no intigrated video card into the motherboard. UGH!!  :-[

It is a Dell with 2G CPU, 1G RAM, - any possibilities to salvage this computer or do I have to build another computer???????
