A Blue Question sign in device manager win7 32
« on: March 02, 2019, 06:26:34 AM »
Hi',
I have installed licensed  mach3 on my pc win7 32bit ram 3gb, and it is for my plasma cnc, keep getting this blue question mark in device manager. My bob is cnc4pc c35s with lpt port connection to pc. I have ran driver test, was fine, i did turn off power management, screen saver, win fire wall, it is only for mach3.  Did i miss something, ?anyone can help me to solve this same problem?
Thank you

Stefanus

Go into command prompt with administrator rights and paste and add the below registers.

reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management" /v FeatureSettingsOverride /t REG_DWORD /d 3 /f

reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management" /v FeatureSettingsOverrideMask /t REG_DWORD /d 3 /f

Restart the computer for the changes to take effect.

 A Blue Question sign in device manager win7 32 just means "driver is NOT digitally signed" with Microsoft.

The 2 registry patches are to prevent Mach3 crashing because some new Win7 automatic updates will try to disable the "unsigned drivers".

After applying the two patches you can safely ignore the ? sign.

Find command prompt
right click and select RUN as Administrator

Use you mouse  highlight  the whole line then copy (cntr+C)
Now click you mouse at the command prompt field and
paste (Cntr+V)
Press enter
Do the same for the next reg add line.

If you are typing, reg add
must not have quotes

After applying the two patches you can safely ignore the ? sign. My win7 system has  the blue? sign too. Only Windows XP systems will NOT have that blue? sign.
