HDMI monitor goes blank when Running a file
« on: January 28, 2018, 12:17:18 PM »
This may not be the place to post this...( please advise)  I have been using mach3 to run my 4x8 CNC router for a few years( LOVE IT) But i just swapped out computers to a HP with windows 10. and copied all my files over. it works as before flawlessly. however when I send a file to run the screen goes blank. CNC runs as normal but the screen comes on and off randomly. if you mouse is hovered over any of the buttons even though you an see them they work? has anyone seen this issue???

Try turning OFF Toolpath Display (Diagnostics screen).
If this makes a difference then it would suggest you need more graphics memory.
