Hi Mach3 users.

Im new to cnc milling and i bought a second hand cnc milling machine which is working with parallel port.

Now the pc he used is broken and i got a laptop which im being trying to get working.

I dont get any pulse frequency on the driver tester.

I run windows xp on a hp compaq nc6120. Latest version of mach3.

-Disabled all the acpi devices in device manager
-tried all bios settings for parallel port(ecp bidirectional standard and epp)
-cnc machine moved a hop when restarted the laptop.
-tried special driver
-tried to delete the lpt port and the mach3 driver from the device manager.

Any suggestions that can help me?

Best regards
