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 attitude depends on who you are.

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