    Was it a download, or was it supplied on a disk?

    The reason I'm asking, is if we can see what software/files you have, we'll be able to give more precise help, which should get you up and running quicker.
    Hi m_c The software came in disk is grbl 0.8.

    I am sorry m_c I completely missed your this post. I came back from work and was tired as hell. Sorry 😞
    Disk came with kit and it contains grbl 0.8
    I have tried reinstalling it and installing it back on but still no luck so far.

    It would be helpful to see what's on the disk, as I'd hope it would contain a configuration file.
    How big (in MB!) is everything on the disk? Would it be possible to add all the files on the disk to a ZIP, and upload it somewhere?

    Ultimately you'll need to follow these instructions - https://github.com/gnea/grbl/wiki/Compiling-Grbl
    And then to test if it's successfully flashed to the board, open the terminal within the Arduino software, type and send '$' to see if you get a response as per - https://github.com/gnea/grbl/wiki/Grbl-v1.1-Commands

    Can it flash the arduino?

    If you follow this guide make sure you change the device settings that says mega to 328p (Might be listed as nano, think Uno works fine to)

    If you didn't buy it from China the company you bought it from did ;)

    Did you get chance to check email m_c? I sent you earlier on.

    Yes, I got it.
    I'm on late shift this week, so only just got home.

    There's nothing in that archive that relates to the actual programming of the board, however it all references using version 0.9. Given everything references 0.9, it's probably wise to try reflashing 0.9.

    Try following the guide at the top of this page - https://github.com/grbl/grbl/wiki/Compiling-Grbl
    Download the grbl 0.9 files via this link - https://github.com/grbl/grbl/archive/master.zip
    And the main Arduino IDE software at https://www.arduino.cc/download_hand....3-windows.exe

    Let us know how you get on following that guide. And if you manage to establish any kind of communication with the board.
