Thread: PC for my new cnc machine
As it suggest's I'm after a computer for the cnc I'm making
have you got a old computer in the attic with a parallel port it doesn't have to be pretty
I will pay cash for it and pay for postage or collect.
I have a monitor so that's not needed
And to think I gave 2 laptops and computer away this year O'well that's life
would you not just need a pci parallel card?
Are you the only person in the world who hasn't discovered e-bay? :rofl:
Older computers are extremely cheap.
Nice one but I thought I would ask here first
Ok I have bought a Dell Optiplex GX270 PC Tower Computer 2.7GHz 512MB 40GB of ebay now I did ask him if it had a parallel port and he said "No"
How ever I went on dells web site and found this information and it does say yes here is the PDF LINK http://www.dell.com/downloads/us/pro...gx270_spec.pdf
But the answer I got back from the seller was it has a 24? pin PINK Port
now I thought the parallel port was blue or is that just the colour of the plug
any way what can I do if it hasn't got a parallel port can I have one added to it
will MAC3 run with out a OS ??
I thought we were going to try and fix the one you had anyway?
yes but now I have a back up Jonathan if the other one can't be repaired
boy scout me dib dib dib
MACH3 will need an operating system installed for it to work. You will need an OS or the computer simply wont boot up.
thank you Ian
I've just down loaded there manual and on the front cover it said "made for windows xp and 2000
