Assembly done now what?

I have the assembly done, I squared the gantry installed the spindle but want to try Hello World.

When I power on the Shapeoko 3 XXL The X axis stepper makes a shrill sound and the machine does nothing.

So I plugged in my laptop to the USB and Windows makes an acknowledgment tone that “something” was plugged in but nothing on the Shapeoko. I checked all the connection on the control board and have a blue light. I started Carbide Motion and nothing happens. and that sound is driving my dog nuts.Carbide Motion says connect cutter???

Also, click on that big connect icon in the center. I felt dumb after clicking because I thought it was just waiting for me to connect the cable.
