Hi,
what PC are you using?
What OS is loaded?
Are you using a parallel port?
If so post an image of DriverTest.exe results.
What breakout board and/or motion controller are you using?

Dell OptiPlex 760 using windows XP. Parallel port being used. The driver test showed "excellent" and the pulse rate was very steady at about 27,000.  I have yet to hook up my machine, but am not seeing any motion on the display DRO's. I remember from years ago that the display showed motion and the display actually showed the tool movement. I am not getting that now. Thanks for your reply.

Have you enabled your motors in Ports & Pins?
Make no mistake between my personality and my attitude.
My personality is who I am.
My attitude depends on who you are.

without motors being assigned, even if not connected then Mach will not display an axis movement.
