1 i set Task Manager-Processes-mach3.exe-affinity - cpu0 or cpu1 ,   it not useful,motors still slowly and vibrate profusely
2 when mach3 working ,i run any other software at the same time , the Motors  run smoothly immediately。
3 i set win+r-msconifg-boot.ini-advanced-/NUMPROC(N)=1,reboot laptop, the Motors  run smoothly immediately
please help , i dont want use only 1 cpu  ,coz it is core 2 dual ;D

Unfortunately Mach3 will not operate correctly using a Laptop with a Parallel Port - you need to be using a PC with Parallel Port or a Laptop with motion controller.

If you decide on a motion controller then choose one from EU or USA manufacture - avoid anything from China.
If you choose anything from a business that is listed in this thread then forum support may be limited; https://www.machsupport.com/forum/index.php?topic=24331.0

There are many to choose from but the Warp9 ESS is good.
