If that doesn't help, try this http://www.cnc4pc.com/Store/osc/product ... cts_id=203
One of my machines is also running Mach3 with a DELL. The signals sent via parallel port are weaker than they used to be on older computers. The problem I had was primarely with the Z and occasiaonally only with the X or Y. I fixed it with the buffer.
I posted either on CNCZone or Mach forum (don't remember which) and if I recall correctly, the feedback from other members was positive.
