PC wont shut down & Mach wont start......................
« on: September 12, 2008, 10:33:00 PM »
???
This is a new one for me.
I was fooling around with that God forsaken LazyCam today, (just being dramatic) and on two separate occasions, dbl clicking the Mach3 loader on the desktop did nothing...except turn the icon blue. Couldn't start Mach....no matter what I tried.
Then I went to reboot the PC and it would not shut down. Had to kill it with the 5 sec. button press.
Never saw this before.
Ctrl, Alt, Delete did nothing either. I could run the driver test and it was perfect.
All of my other prgms ran fine.
Killed it with the button, then all is well again.
Like Austin Powers said "Kind of Nutty Basil"
Any help...please,
RC
oh yea, R.008 and LCam 3.00.2.....pretty sure

THEN......being I could not shut down, I went ahead and checked 2 email accounts, visited 3 forums, posted in 2 of them and while looking at a link, the pc briefly showed the task manager, less than 1 sec, then the dang thing shut down. 5 min. or more from the time I tried to shut down.
Strange,
RC

R.C.
You have your Mach machine controller on line.?? Thats asking for trouble.
I have my machine pc dedicated to my machine only. Nothing else.
In my opinion, thats my opinion. :D

Ed, To each his own..and yours is yours.
This is on my office PC.  :) :
My machine PC is dedicated.
LCam did some very VERY strange things several times...that's what I'm blaming it on for now.
Most likely my fault though.......usually is. ::)

uninstall you mach3 driver.you don,t need it when you work with mach3 on your office machine. use your xml from your work machine and
that way you end up with simulator.
