Hi there

I am hooking up mach 3 to a probotix pbx-2 3 axis kit. I have set the ports and pins to probotix's specs, I have made sure the parallel port address is correct. I have checked to make sure the max nc is not turned on. I did the driver test and it is good to excellent.

The only thing I can think of is re install windows xp and mach 3.

Do any of you have any other suggestions?

Thank you,  Alonzo

cancel that. I discovered that a probotix board will ont function if one of the drivers is shot. I unglugged the x axis on the bob and the stepper motor came to life.
