Have you tried bypassing the mosfets to see if that's where your blockage is ?

Yes the problem I think is in the firmware the marlin ino just won't open the right way as in it doesn't have any tabs in it I would have to add them all so when I was compiling and uploading I wasn't really doing anything so its at a stand still until I can figure out how to change it. or where to move it .or what to  use to open it using word pad but I don't think that is correct got note pad ++ but I can't seem to use it without all these  technical issues this thing would have been printing something .kind of ridiculous considering its the last thing to finish .?? this is mostly a lack of  computer knowledge problem .

Did the ramps board have any software preinstalled when you bought it ?

No just a empty board I don't think marlin ever loaded on to it wiring is all tight

This is how i get Marlin into the Arduino IDE to edit configuration.h, etc then compile :

Built the printer from raw metal no prob installed all motors and electronics no prob level plumb all that no prob even know the exact config for my custom machine just can't get marlin to work the right way .just don't know enough about it  to know what's wrong .???.at a halt !! Back to cytron motor drivers and sensors  and such till  I can figure something out.  ?

Did you change any setting in the configuration file before compiling?
Did you receive any error messages at all during compile and/or upload process?
...and if so, what were they?

The marlin ino  has no tabs in it they are all separate from it config .h compiles and uploads but nothing else is with it so it doesn't do any thing .I waited to long .the build went so easy I thought this part of it would be breeze .  I'm overlooking something  but what?

@duce-robot that's very weird...

did you try the method i showed above to get the full Marlin (i always use the bugfix-1.1.x branch) into it's very own directory ? When i double click or right-click/open the marlin.ino, all the tabs show up.

Then it is crucial to go over Configuration.h (and very often you also have to check the Configuration_adv.h as well) to specify what your exact hardware is.

The project to be compiled is marlin.ino, it will then include all the .h files it needs.  Configuration.h is not to be compiled on its own.

Another issue may be failed upload because of too big compiled firmware size ? When i added a BLtouch to my config, the compiled firmware went over the max.size for my board and I did not see that at first...the LCD of my printer stayed dead until I found this and removed some options and recompiled.

Do you mean you get no tabs showing up as per the video from ZeFerby?
I just downloaded it and successfully compiled it, even without a board connected.

Here is a LINK that may help.

I'm going to try it but I don't have win zip  i didn't realise what the bug fix was I'm likely going to have to bring  my laptop in somewhere .funny all the tutorials on marlin show people just down loading and extracting  it and going to the arduino ide and its all in the ino  that has not been the case .I might have messed up the settings but again I don't know enough about computers to know what I did wrong.I deleted it I'm going refresh the computer and come back to it with a fresh eye .thanks!?

@duce-robot On "modern" versions of Windows (without Winzip installed), the file explorer should have an option to Extract the contents of archive files if you right-click on them.  You may end up with an additional level of sub-folder but it's not important.
