The new machine is a desk top HP Compaq.

Yes the the motors are making a growling noise...like they are labouring.

I am wanting to set up another computer to run mach3 for my CNC router (stepper driven).
The computer that was running my machine is giving me trouble on boot up.
I have aquired another computer to run the machine.
Now the problems I have with this machine are that I cannot get the steppers to run "sweetly" like they were with the old computer.

I have copied the XMl file to the new machine and have manually checked the settings multiple times to make sure they are the same as the original.

I have also tried multiple settings other than the original for the motors, but am unable to get the steppers to sound as I feel they should.

The original computer specs:
AMD Athalon   1.1 GHz    1.5GB RAM

Pulse Frequency  25376  Steady

Driver Test...System Excellent
Pulses per sec  24406 - 24605

New Computer:
Pentium 4   3.06GHz   2.99GB RAM
Pulse Frequency  24789 - 24811

Driver Test....System Excellent
Pulses per sec   24941 - 25022

OS Windows XP

Hello Hood,

I have created a new Profile and that seems to have solved the problem.

Have attached the XML if you wish to compare.

Is it the status bar that the message should be in?...if so no there is no error message.

Hello Hood,

Do you mean you want to see the Mach 3 input and output configuration?

Hello Forum

Thought you may have an answer on this one.

I have my HF spindle running and controlled via a VFD by Mach3.

When I first start a machining run the spindle fires up as it should and shuts down at the end of the machining as it should.

Now if I want to repeat the machining e.g. doing a multiple run of the same design the spindle will not start up when the command is given to start the run.

It will only start as it should if I press the reset and reset before starting.

It’s not a big problem, I was just wondering if this is normal procedure?
