Hello and welcome to the forum. The subject of your post referenced a blue screen crash - at what point did that happen? By the way, unless you have a special controller for your motors Mach software must have a real parallel port on the PC. USB to parallel port converters will not work.
Yes, it is possible to install without the driver. See if you can fix the CPU speed by disabling any battery conservation option it might have. Also, be sure to wait a minute or two after quitting Mach before you turn the PC off or put it in any stand-by mode. The engine remains running for a few seconds after Mach unloads.
