Thanks for bringing this back up I should have come and updated it!

I could not figure out the problem but a great guy in the Seattle area did find and fix it.
My original board had a blown fuse (why oh why did I not check that!?) and the steppers drivers that I purchased did not have the correct voltage rating so luckily I had an extra of the original ones. So on it went and the unit runs as it should now.
So check your board out thoroughly before spending/buying a new one. My original board is totally fine!
Thanks to all suggestions!!!
