update your firmware.
choose a good software
measure the voltage coming out of the laser pins on the controller (should be 12vdc when turned on)

We need some more info on your machine and software as well as the firmware being used to be able to more accurately help.

Thanks for your reply. I have had my brother-in-law check the laser and it works. I am not tech smart. I will try to respond with what the software is.
I downloaded Elkslaser Software - Benbox. Is this any good  ?
