Hi,
how about some info? Parallel port or external controller? If parallel what kernel speed? If parallel what does
DriverTest.exe reveal? What 'steps per'? How many microsteps per step? What velocity and accel in motor tuning?
Can you post a Gcode sequence of moves that shows the fault?

Post the info requested in  reply #2.

The knocking sound you hear "may" be caused by a poor pulse signal coming from the parallel port / computer.
You would need to look at the signal with a o'scope to see it. My experience was "ringing"  on the pulse signal.
There is NOTHING you can do about it, conditioning, etc., etc. other than use an external motion controller.

I think you need to turn off ACPI and convert the new XP installation to a STD PC with NON-ACPI HAL.
All new PCs are built with ACPI bios.
