Reboot in the middle of the Program
« on: February 13, 2011, 04:23:23 AM »
This is the first time it happens with this new install.  I really do not know what the issue is.  It is a clean PC.

The part is lost, time is lost, the tool did not break -- still very frustrating :-(

I'm wondering if (1) could this be a mach3 problem, (2) could it be a driver problem, (3) could it be a hardware issue -- someone once told me that some sort of signal fluctuation in the parallel port could reboot your PC.

2 questions, if you can help me...

1) What could be causes for a spontaneous reboot in an install that is/was otherwise working.

2) Would it help any if I upgraded to something like Smooth Stepper?  I would be pretty upset if I upgrade the computer, got a Smooth Stepper and a month from now I had another crash.

Is there hope?

Thanks.

Only time I have ever had a reboot of the computer itself is when there has been a hardware issue with the power side of the computer or my mains supply to the computer.
Look at the motherboard and see if any of the capacitors are leaking or bulging, also look in the Bios and see if the voltages are reported as being good.
