New Windows 7 computer not working help with spindle
« on: July 17, 2015, 07:12:10 PM »
Hi, my XP machine finally died and all i could find new were machines that could run windows 7.

I bought windows 7 32bit
Gigabyte LGA 1150 Intel H81 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX DDR3 1600 Motherboards GA-H81M-DS2V Motherboard
Kingston HyperX FURY 4GB 1866MHz DDR3 CL10  Ram
XFX AMD Radeon HD 5450 1GB GDDR3 VGA/DVI/HDMI Low-Profile PCI-Express Graphics Card
Intel Celeron G1820 Processor 2.7GHz 5.0GT/s 2MB LGA 1150 CPU
Rosewill PCIe Parallel Card 1 Port Components Other RC-302E

I set up the computer and brought my old setting over via the xml and chnaged the port number for the parallel port. When I turned it on all the stepper worked but the spindle doesn't turn on. I checked all the setting and everything looks good.

Any suggestions?

I installed the latest version of Mach 3, VR3.043.066, regular. I DID NOT install the version and patch for Vista. Could that be it or something else.

here's what the computer is hooked up to. I think I have a C11 Break out board and a C6 Speed Control Board for the Spindle.

if your axes a driving correctly that suggests your computer and the PP are working OK.
Does the C11 have LEDs on the outputs? I use the boards from Homan Designs (near enuf to a local supplier in NZ) and they
have them and make diagnosing things much easier. I suspect the C11 boards are the same. You can see them quite plainly
when you jog an axis. Have a look. Should be able then to tell if the BOB is getting signalled from the PP...
