Does your PC have, as minimum requirement …

•   1Ghz CPU
•   512MB RAM
•   Non-integrated Video Card with 32MB RAM(Large G-code files, especially 3D files will require a video card with 512MB RAM or higher)

Well, all I can suggest is that your PC is either running background tasks or something but it seems that particular PC is not up to running Mach3 within Windows XP as it stands.

Excuse me but I didn't understand you very well!
I have format it 3 times and again reinstall the software, but didn't help!
Really I can't know what to do!
On my windows I didn't have any software, any game, any things! Just Mach3!

Sorry, I do appreciate the language differences.

Mach3 (in particular the parallel port driver) takes liberties with the Windows operating system and some PC's just can't handle it. My best advice is to try another PC.

I would do a clean reinstall of Windows XP first and see if the problem goes away before installing Mach 3. Sounds like a corrupt OS and not a Mach 3 problem. It could be possible the copy of Windows XP you are installing is corrupt. XP is probably the most stable OS MicroSoft ever developed.

I agree with geh7552 you need to determine that XP is running well on the PC before worrying about Mach3. Do a clean install of XP, don't add any other programs at all, and make sure windows XP works well. Once everything is Ok we can help you with any issues with the Mach3 software.
Good luck
Dave
Cheers

Hey guys, really thanks for your help about my problem, yeah geh7552 my windows it's not a licensed version I think, but are you sure that I need a licensed version of windows?

Because I think to bay another new PC with windows 2000,
 I didn't know if 2000 will be more effectively than xp, what you say man?

Thanks so much!
Best regards!
