Hi Peter

I have just been through a similar experience, problem with my PC, had to build another, transfer went perfectly, and i did it as follows.

Copied the old Mach3 directory over to the new PC

On the new PC i installed Mach3 as per normal

Never saw that one. Make sure you you reboot per installation instructions. The latest test veresions  automaticaly
do a reboot. May want to try downloading and reloading again. Post the version you are installing.

Peter, that looks like a flash screen, possibly it might have to do with that?

Possibly try a standard screen and see if you still have that issue?

Just because I'm a Global Moderator, don't assume that I know anything !

The only time that will come up is if I go into the config editor and try to access port and pins everything else is accessable - other than that since I over wrote the new install with the mach3 system from the laptop everything is as it was on the laptop , works beautifully and much smoother , and I did the reboot . Its no big deal since everything still functions at 100% but was curious if Art can shed some light on this one
