freezing newinstall of mach3
« on: November 10, 2011, 06:12:46 AM »
hi there,

i have some troubles which i hope you nice people out there can solve with me. i run mach3 under windos7 32bit. from time to time my computer freezes.

about my setup:

there are no background processes running - no antivirus, no network, no wireless,....
i did install the memoryoverride suggested for vista.

i deleted and unistalled mach3 from my machine including the mach3 pulse driver and did a reboot.
as i do not have a internetconnection on my cnc computer i did download the newest mach3 version on another computer. i did put it on a usb stick but when i try to install the new version on my cnc computer i get an error "a decompression error has occurred - file crc mismatch - data integrity error". i do not know what to do about this.

meanwhile i installed an older version of mach3 (which came with the controlboard). this installed ok.

my controllboard (TB6560) manual tells me to set mach3 on 35000hz what i did set. the driver test shows me 25000hz. am i missing something or is this ok. set this way driver test tells me that mach3 is under control and the performance is excellent - a nice line with very few very small spikes.

i read through the forum about the freezing topic and did all the suggested i have my parallelport set in the bios to bidirectional (EPP), i did uncheck "load startup items" in msconfig, did the vista patch and am running a clean windows7 32bit. it would be really great if somebody can help as i really want my machine reliable in working without me standing next to it.

have a nice day!

I don't use the Vista version of Windows so can't help you there.
The CRC is is an error that is telling you that what the pc read is different from what it wrote. Download mach and try installing again.

i found out why i always had crc errors. these come when i download mach using google chrome browser. tried it with internet explorer now it worked.

i also did update the flash.dll even when i do not use a flash screen at the moment.

still sometimes my machine simply freezes. there is no way to get it to live again. i am pretty sure that my windows is very clean and i am worried how to solve this issue. sometimes the machine runs a whole day without a problem, sometimes it freezes several times randomly. i can hear the fan of the pc speeding up and a second later the computer freezes.

if anybody could help - i would be super happy!

hi, i found my problem. basically placing the memory bars in the other ports of my motherboard helped. i am happy. no freezing.
