Did you disable ACPI before installing windows? Other than that, I don't know? Is it a windows problem, or a motherboard issue? Perhaps update the Bios?

Hi Gerry

Yep I tried to disable the ACPI but that was when windows could not find my hard drive to install it's self to.

I have finished the clean install and will try it tonight (Tues) when I get home from work.

Thanks again

Andy

Well after yet another clean install of XP and MACH my situation is no different.

I have had a plunge gauge in the Z axis and programmed some very fast moves ranging from 90mm right down to 0.1 mm and finshed off at Z zero and the dial gauge shows it is bang on, no signs of any missed steps at all.

It seems only to happen when all three axis are moving together!

Can anyone tell me what the  "TIME IN INT" number means this is on the diagnostics screen just below "Jog ON/OFF control-alt-j" button as I have noticed the readout is jumping all over the place which might be ok I don't know?

Thanks for everyones help, this is now starting to drive me mad.

Andy

Time in Int will jump about so thats nothing to worry about, it should be fairly low and only vary a bit though, not big differences. Whats your normally about?

Can you attach your xml, will have a look and see if I can find a problem.

Hi  Hood

Thanks for the help.

Time in Int ranges from +4 to +14 but flicking very fast between these numbers.

Whats the best way to attach the XMl file?

Semms fine for Int
You will need to copy your xml to a different location on your drive then rename it so that the forum will accept it, suggest you call it audioandy.xml
You then use the additional options button on the reply page and browse your drive and choose your renamed xml.

One thing I have been asked to test by someone else is the poret grounding on the new motherboard which I will check tomorrow because I am off to bed up at 5.30 for work.

Cheers
