  I am new to this so i do apologize for lack of info. ???

I will go to shop again today and try and get more info on it for you.
I too did not find any info on PC card Maker either,  that was what i was told who made card.
I worked on it from 12:30 till 111:30 at night with no luck.
Went threw Manual several time's and i mean several time's and could not find anything out.
Strange thing is i seen it work before 6 months ago.
When i had some help tracing threw everything yesterday i found one connection had come undone.
I learned there is a momentary button that needs to be pushed in to get the driver boards to light up green.
This X Y Z Thing is really driving me nuts, i need info on the Motor output settings but do not know where to look for info on ports and pins yet.
I will post some photos and take some more detailed one's today.
Thanks for your help.

  I have x axis moving in the +X with both arrow keys.
I have Y doing the same thing.
I have Z that is dead.
Could use any help that you have.

   I found a connection that was not plugged in.
I will have to post a new problem.
I found out the name of my board is PC Card Maker.
My new problem is the hot keys are set correct but Z does not work at all /  Y moves in negative direction with both the up and down arrow  /  X also only moves positive with both left and right arrow keys.   

  Yes parallel port.

  Reset works now but still stepping down.
And i can not get anything to move.

   I seen it all work when i bought it.
I am new.
I can not seam to get reset to stop flashing.
The emergency stop works, that is how i got it to stop stepping z down about .020 every two seconds.
What would it take for someone to call me for 5-10 min. to check a few things.
Thanks Greg
