Question #: 6791

Question: will your parallel port breakout board fry my motherboard in any unfortunate event?

Current Solution

The parallel breakout board can damage the motherboard if anything happens to the board to cause a error. The parallel BoB, is tested before shipment so it should not cause any damage on arrival.
As most electronic components there are a lot of possibilities that may cause damaged. If your motherboard is having issues or you are concerned about the parallel breakout board causing damaged.
We recommend to try to run your computer with both the parallel and USB power disconnected from your computer and run a project without the CNC connected and test for irregularities with the computer running.
Then add the cables for the breakout board and re-test.
