Hi. I think that my new computer running new Windows 10 is not sending the mach 3 signals to the breakout board. I have tried to test the printer ports outlet port for voltage as I saw on a tube video,but I am getting know voltage readings.I also tried getting a voltage reading from the breakout to driver motor outlet pins still know readings.I have ran the computer test in windows and it says that the port is ok.
I am at a total loss what to do next.
Anyone else had this problem,and did you find a answer.
