Can't Get Mach3 to Run on new PC with Windows XP
« on: February 19, 2011, 08:03:31 PM »
Hi All,

I have had to replace my old PC that is running my Bridgeport Clone,
I have replaced it with a Compaq Presario S6040AN (Details Below)

I installed Mach3 and reset as required. Loaded licence and reset again. Optimised Windows XP as per sheet from lowcostcncretrofits.

When i try to run the OCXDriverTest it will do the countdown and the system will go under mach control and about 1second later it will freeze.

I have done a clean install of windows XP and still the same problem, Can anyone help or should i upgrade computer??

First, try using the special driver. Info is in the manual.

If that doesn't work, try disabling ACPI in the bios and reinstalling windows.
