Try following the instructions in this link

especially changing from ACPI to standard PC

Driving my CNC with old Dell D600 1.6mhz laptop

You need to set safe-Z heights and ramping lengths in your CAD/CAM program.

When using manual movement commands, do the axis move the same amount and correct distance when comparing the two machines?

The other option is to do the profile setting the Machining Vector  to  Cut On the Line, instead of Inside or Outside

The Quick Engraving tool is the fourth tool path type; after Profile, Pocket, Drilling

You are trying to use the Profile toolpath

You probably need to use the Quick Engraving Toolpath

C:\Mach3\macros\Mach3Mill   <-- or whatever profile name you've used

The file name is      HiddenScript.m1s   
but for safety I'd copy the whole folder of macros\Mach3Mill   <-- or whatever profile name you've used

Here are my settings:
Step Pulse: 0
Dir Puls: 0
Step Pulse of 0 microseconds won't do anything...
I think the default is usually
Step Pulse: 2
Dir Puls: 2

worked fine until it returned zero at the end of the cut. /quote]

Check on any hard or soft limit settings that may have been and remain tripped after the 'return to zero'

In the device manager, is your computer set up as Standard, or ACPI?   If the latter try changing it to Standard... that is what I did when I used to run my CNC from a laptop.
