Thread: New Mobo
Clusting straws a little but if you used existing XML it could be corrupted so for sake of 10mins it may be worth re-entering the settings into a new profile just for elimination purposes.?
Did all that and it went smooth for about 10seconds. The board is a Gigabyte GA-7VM266 and the processor is an Athlon 1.8Gig. Compared with the 1.3 Duron that it was on before. That was fine for a couple of months then it started hanging even in loading XP.
It got gradually worse and then became too unreliable to use.
I have disabled anything in the Bios I don't need. LAN, Sound,Games port and MIDI port. The BoB runs on a PCI card with 2 printer ports. All the Board drivers have been (correctly?) installed and there are no yellow question marks in the device manager.
When I switch on and go into Mach3 all is fine for a short time, then it starts to judder. Could the problem be in the BoB even ? I can't believe that all three stepper drivers have gone faulty at the same time.
I think I am going to leave this now till Sunday and then I might do a clean install of Windows and reload the software.
I am just getting a bit boggled with this.
Could be a subliminal message in an autostereogram
It sounds like you have done that already and it is still not working though? One thing you could try is to move the address the Par ports are on to different address, don't forget to let mach3 know what they are. Also try moving the card to another slot n the MB?If the nagging gets really bad......Get a bigger shed:naughty:
I've done all that. I think the only way forward is a clean install on a fresh disk. The thing that is really bugging me is that it works fine for half a minute after reboot then starts the judders. It sounds like a bearing has gone.
I have tried disabling every thing I don't need like ctmon.exe and crss.exe, but nothing makes it any good.
if you have a NVIDIA graphics card its likley you need to bake it (re-flow)
gas mark 6 for ten minutes if i remember correctly... i use a small pen type blow torch on mine with a thermocouple sat on the chip (i isolate the chip with foil tape)
saves having to strip all the plastics off for the oven
i can get my card out, re-flow it and back in in half an hour now (im on my third time in a couple of years)
