driver test ok, but diagnostics shows low pulse frequency
« on: August 14, 2011, 05:35:45 PM »
Still battling the machine here and looking for some insight...

We went back and switched off of ACPI mode per the XP optimizations, but everything has been up and operational previously. No reinstalls or anything, but we ran the drivertest and it says it's excellent. But in Mach3 in the diagnostics page, the pulse frquency keeps coming up with numbers like 3, 18, 30, etc. Before we made the switch it would always read like 25001.

Now, jogging it, or running gcode, it seems to work fine through a full run (well, except for the problem we had before we switched out of acpi). What did we do to Mach3 to make it not see the pulse frequency? How can we make it show it again?
