Thank you all for your help, it's much appreciated.

I reinstalled mach3 and it's almost there but still the motors aren't quite doing what they should.

my y+ and a+ will not work unless an other direction is introduced first.

so this morning I turn on the computer and I get these results.

z+ = nothing moves
z- = a+ y+ x+
y+ = x+
y- = a- y-
x+ = x+
x- = x-

it's like there's a ghost in the machine set on pissing me off

I just reinstalled mach3 again set everything up again.  Now I'm back to not having my y+ and a+ move untill my x- moves first

uninstal mach3 - delete mach 3 folder - go to device and uninstall prnt and com ports - shut down - unplug
snatch the battery out of the motherboard for about 10 min.
load the default settings then look your cmos settings over.
restart and let win find the ports - make sure they all come back.
then put mach back

All that did was waste a huge part of my day.  Any more suggestions?

Ok so here what is happening. 

y+ will not move after x+ has moved any distance untill x- has moved any distance, then y+ will move any distance

Can you post picture of your setup, The electronic part I mean

Look to me that they're something wrong in the setup pin.

Have you tried to set direction to active low.

I hope this is what you wanted.  Since this was a retrofit the wiring was very idiot proof as everything was already hooked up working and labeled.  If anything else is needed please ask and it will be done

May be an idea at this stage to just try another PC, just in case it is your PC which is at fault.
