    While there are lots of old circuits on the net using the L298 and other discrete components for driving a stepper motor, unless this is a school project that requires using them, your better off with a real stepper driver chip. Search Google for "stepper diver" and you will get many hits.

    If you insist on doing it like your trying, posting your schematic is the only way of getting any help. This is the "AllAboutCircuits" forum, not the "WeHaveAChrystalBall" forum.:)

    From the topic I suggest to use 5Kg Driver.

    L298 might no handle the current of your motor.
