My spindle doesn't run (FoxAlien 4040-XE with 300W spindle)

HI, brand new never before user here. Trying to get my first cut on my system which is the following:
FoxAlien 4040-XE with 300W spindle.
Running Easel on an HP laptop.

I have gotten to where the computer talks to the system, and all the way to hitting the carve button and the spindle takes off and starts running the program, Only problem is the spindle is NOT turning.
I set the unit to controller, verify the spindle runs, switch back to computer, and when the program starts, no power to the spindle.
Help please, Thank You
