I'm going to check the rest of the pins as far as the outputs go.  What do you think the chances are that only those two pins are fried?  If that were the case, I could work around that for now.  What all does mach use??  In my case, wouldn't it be just 2-7, 10, 11, 15, and 18-25?  I checked all of 18-25 against 10 and they all seemed to work (lighting up the LED's).  I think I know how to check the outputs (2-7).  But what about pins 1, 16, & 17.  What role do they play, if any?

1 16 and 17 can be set as outputs like any other pin so just set them up as for example output 1, 2 and 3 and then to test go to to Operator menu then VB Editor, in the window that pops up paste this then click on the green arrow while watching the diagnostics page.

ActivateSignal(OutPut1)
Sleep 1000
DeActivateSignal(OutPut1)
ActivateSignal(OutPut2)
Sleep 1000
DeActivateSignal(OutPut2)
ActivateSignal(OutPut3
Sleep 1000
DeActivateSignal(OutPut3)

What should happen is Output 1 LED switch on for 1 second then Output 2 then 3

Are those pins necessary though?  I don't need any more outputs unless any of 2-7 turn out to be bad.

If you dont need them then no, if you add coolant or whatever later then you may want them.

Cool.  I'll post later to let you know what I find on the other outputs.

Thanks Again Hood,

No luck with the direction pins.  None of them showed any voltage when jogged.  Maybe the on-board parallel just won't work with this card.  I changed the active setting in motor outputs and still nothing on any of the direction pins.  I walked away at that point and did not even attempt to try the step pins.  Accidentally switched the (analog) meter to continuity and had that.  I don't have any cash for a couple of weeks.  So I am trying to find someone with a card that will trade for it.

had someone give me a card.  It is a StaTech ISA2S1P.  Unfortunately, it requires a LOONG pci express slot, which my video card is already occupying.  Looking at other options.  I have a buddy that may have a card.

Yeah, things definately are not going my way.  I'm going to talk to my boss on Monday and see if I can't put a card on my tool account.  Otherwise, I'll be waiting to order for at least two weeks.

Thanks Hood,
