Hi Petlaw,

Check that you have not accidentally clicked the Jog ON/OFF button (main screen).
KEEP SAFE !

Make a backup copy of your Mach3 folder.
Download and re-install Mach3   http://www.machsupport.com/software/downloads-updates/

(If that does not resolve the problem then, as you suspect, it may be time to replace your PC).
KEEP SAFE !

A number of members are currently having issues with updates and Win7 / Win10 so my advice would be to stick with WinXP.
The only way you could use Win10 would be with an external motion controller (the usb/pp adapter's don't work).
