i would also recommend taking all jumpers off the board before trying to upload!  works great now.  Thank you for all your help.  I was getting frustrated!

i loaded the driver to that port it now shows as com5 under coms and ports i run the serial monitor and it echoes what i type i try to upload the revised blink file (made the light blink on for longer and off for shorter) and get the new sync error

avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x30

atleast something is different!

there is an unknown device under other devices tab but nothing under the ports and coms tab

without arduino connected, com1, 3, 4 are present along with an lpt3 unusable parallel port

this is what shows in my device manager for coms and ports.  nothing about an arduino being plugged in

i just tried again with a different usb cable and didn't get the chime.  I pulled out the jumpers and plugged it in and got a chime.  then i reinstalled the jumpers and got the chime.  the plugged in chime sounds different than normal.  lower, possibly a sort of not good connection sound.  ran the serial monitor no echo

it worked with this one originally, i have tried other cables from printers that work.

i'm sure it doesn't matter which grnd i grnd the reset to. and yes tx to rx

don't know what this is

Start your favourite terminal application.  Serial Monitor will work fine.

yes i get the "chime" when it plugs in

nothing is connected to the board

I've now switched usb cables.  ALso i've gone through the entire trouble shooting section and nothing is mentioned there

UNO board, windows 7 ultimate 64 bit

i loaded all the drivers as per instructions on web site.  opened the blink file and uploaded it.  it works fine.  Then i tried to load the button file and got this message: avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00

I have since rebooted, changed com ports, usb ports, tried to update drivers.  reset the board and upload.

and just so you know i'm new to every aspect of this... to include posting on a forum!
