At the top of the sketch, change   int Pin = 13;  to  int ledPin = 13;

We are asking about your CODE because it is your CODE that processes the INPUTS that you state you are having a problem with.  Is that clear enough?

We do not sit around and ask people for information because we are bored.  You came to US for help, feel free to ignore our requests for further information and solve this problem YOURSELF.

My Windows 7 operating system does not go:
C:\Documents and Settings\USER_NAME\Application Data\
That's Windows XP

Windows 7 goes:
C:\Users\USER_NAME\

Then:

Windows 7: C:\Users\USER_NAME\AppData\Roaming\Arduino\Preferences.txt

Delete the preferences file:  Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\USER_NAME\Application Data\Arduino preferences.txt

Windows 7: C:\Users\USER_NAME\AppData\Roaming\Arduino\preferences.txt
170  Using Arduino / Microcontrollers / Re: Help! Where can I buy ATmega328p? on: July 11, 2012, 03:00:22 pm
Finding that chip with a bootloader is hard because very, very, very few people use them as a standalone chip.  The DIP package is almost universally preferred. 
Sounds like a potential business opportunity for you if you figure out an easy way to program them - you might sell 3-5 of them a year...

It will be easier to recommend hardware if you tell us exactly what you plan to control.

I have never had a problem with this, but for absolute safety, I would say the simple solution is to download the new sketch before you hook anything up to your Arduino.
173  Using Arduino / Programming Questions / Re: Arduino v1.0.1 not compatible with some Shields on: July 11, 2012, 09:54:41 am
Why are you using COM15?  Using such a high com port can be a problem in itself.

The problem is most likely that the RAMPS shield is interfering with the reset.

Do you see an unknown device in device manager?
175  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: install problems on: July 08, 2012, 11:54:19 pm
What version of Arduino IDE are you using?  After your re-install of Windows (Or did you restore from a restore point?), did you download and re-install the Arduino IDE, or did you restore it from a backup?
176  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Can't get started with new board on: July 08, 2012, 11:47:07 pm
We are going to need more information.  Please post the sketch that you are trying to run, and point out the changes that you made from the original  that was working.

What operating system is your computer using?

COM 1 is almost certainly wrong.  Unplug the Arduino, reboot the computer, plug the Arduino back in, open the Arduino IDE, and see what COM port it shows.
177  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Can't get started with new board on: July 08, 2012, 09:24:44 pm
All the boards say Arduino...  Did you purchase an Uno R3 or a Mega R3?  You MUST select the proper card under the boards menu.
178  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / Re: Very Very board! Please help! :) on: July 03, 2012, 01:51:07 pm

http://www.arduinobook.com/ He has lots of books and he posts here from time to time to help people.

I HIGHLY recommend this book.  The author is active on here under the name of Si.

Great resources.
180  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: can't upload simple programs on Arduino Uno - please help on: July 01, 2012, 07:40:30 pm
Do you have Cygwin installed by any chance?
Also, remove any reference to "GCC_EXEC_PREFIX" from autoexec.bat and also remove it from the system variables list under system properties.

If not, what OS are you using?
What version of the Arduino IDE?
