Here is my Wild guess > Look for a bad wiring connection in conjunction with parrallel ports ! Namely i'd suspect a ground loop ! my guess is that when mach configures the ports on powerup there is a grounded circuit which shocks pc off line.

I've been using Mach3 for about a year now and I have found that the only time my computer crashes is when I use the edit g-code and click save when I'm done. It crashes as I click on save. This only happens now and then, sometimes it will go for days without incidence and then I could have a whole day of problems. I put it down to using a 1200Mhz computer which I'm told is a bit slow for a happy Mach3.

You never mentioned what computer you are running, Could it be that you are using a slow computor?

Perhaps someone could tell me whether this matters or not to the crashing problems?

Cheers

Do you have a wireless network on this PC? If so, disable it and see if it happens any more.

No 3D just 2D on a Flamecutting machine

Can you tell us which operating system you have, and have you got any parallel port devices like printers, scanners etc. installed? Even though the devices might not be connected, the drivers might still load at start up. Even reinstalling windows could cure your problem. Do you get any error messages when your system crashes? Or does it just freeze? If you have XP loaded, when you get a crash, try and leave the system for a while before you reboot, sometimes the OS will recover and give you more info. Also check your BIOS settings, if you are overclocking it can be a problem. Have you got a Machine debugger running in the background? Another option is to disconnect the parallel ports and modbus if you have one, and run Mach3 in simulator mode, and check if you still have a problem.
