Setup of new machine

Does anyone know how long I will sit like this?

Should be less than a minute.

I have been like this for 30 min. What should I do?

I was unsure if I had posted. I am here for help not smart mouths!

For some reason (and there are many) your computer and the X-carve are not talking to each other.

If you are using windows, check the device manager to see if a COM port exists for the X-carve.

Using the X-controller some people have had to manually install the FTDI com port driver.

Larry, I have this so I am assuming this is what I need?

Go to this web site, download and install the driver that matches your Operating System (most likely Windows 2017-8-30 2.12.28)

In additional to LarryM’s advice, it might be worth trying another USB cable to see if the condition is still present.

Did you download and install the driver package - http://x-carve-instructions.inventables.com/1000mm/step10/

Have you tried unplugging and reconnecting your USB cable? That usually fixes it for me when I have this issue.
