Driver watchdog triggered
« on: November 16, 2006, 02:42:35 AM »
I was rotating the view of a 18Mb program when mach3 stops, turnig on reset button, and the "Driver watchdog triggered" appeared in the status bar.

the machine didn't working, was stopped (sorry for my english) I was just looking at the program.

What it means?

Hi, Faby

This happen's if you move the view around to much, I don't really now exactilly why, seem's like more than a 90 deg. rotation will do it.

Find a view you like, Reset Mach, a Regen tool path if needed.

Hope this Helps, Chip

Hi, I have found that this happens on computors that are under 1ghz. I guess windows is trying to update the screen and taking control away from Mach3 which Mach3 dosn't like too much.

I upgraded my processor from 733mhz to 1.3ghz and the problem disappeared.

Cheers

I use a P4 3GHz, 1Gb ram...
Well now I know that it's only a matter o view, I was scared that it could happen during the machine working.
That job need 12-14 hours of continuous work  :P

Thanks

Hi, I see what you mean. Your computor speed seems fine. I have never had the error whilst the machine is working only when the screen was updating the new file I loaded.


Cheers

Hi Faby,

you can disable the Driver Watchdog in General Config...
