Mach 2 freezing right after loading my profile
« on: April 03, 2006, 12:28:36 PM »
Funny thing. Everything was working great. Drew a couple of scorpions, then the next day the program freezes right after I load the profile. If I'm very to quick to hit a reset everything will work fine, otherwise the whole computer locks up. Nothing new has been loaded.

Sorry if my responses seem ignorant, I'm new to all this. I usually don't get past loading the session profile and it freezes the computer right after the main window of Mach comes up. All was working fine the day before. I just got the X and Y axis running on my homebuilt plasma table and have been drawing things on paper with a pencil mounted in place of the torch.

XP.

It's kinda funny I have several other XP computer with no machine connected and the ones running XP are freezing now and they were not before. I have a laptop with win 2000 and It does not freeze when running Mach2. All are hooked up to the same network, some wired some wireless.

Hi Bob:

 Im curious, does it lock up if you load Mach3Turn? It sounds like one of the settings is screwing somethign up, it may take createing a fresh profile to find it..

No, it seems to only be locking up when I load the SoundLogic profile from Bob Campbells site. Funny thing is it worked fine with it before. Now even if I reload the original Soundlogic profile it locks up, but not on my windows 2000 machine. I guess I'll just load 2000 on my cnc computer. And when I say lock up, sometimes it freezes and then comes back to life for a brief moment and freezes again, if in that brief moment I can hit the reset button the machine will run fine.

Mach2 seems like a great program by the way. I was very impressed I was able to buy all these components hook it all up and start drawing things so quickly being a newbie to all this.

Hi:

  Might be some script or another. I cant think of why the lockup only on thaty profile, but if it locks on more than one computer, send me the profile, Ill see if it locks here.. :), if it locks for me, I can usually fix it..

I am in the process of rebuilding my machine control computer. Attached is the profile that locked on several of my computers running XP.
