Hello guys! I think my booloader is corrupted because the L led is off but the computer detects it. And I also read from this:
http://arduino.cc/en/Guide/troubleshooting

Btw my OS is windows xp.
I've googled on how to burn a new bootloader but I am having problems on the connections here's the link for the tutorial:
http://www.geocities.jp/arduino_diecimila/bootloader/index_en.html

The example are from the blue diecimila while mine is red and the connections are different.
As you can see from the pictures. There are no x3 from the red diecimila, only C8, R9, R7, C9.
And what are those socket wire's called?

Really need help.
Thanks in advance!

If you look at the FTDI chip in the two pictues, you will see that it is flipped 180 degrees around. So X3 on Diecimila is JP7 on the red board.

Put some male header pins in JP7.
Then you can use wire like these

to connect the two together.

the 4slots on the upper left side sir?
in the tutorial sir: http://www.geocities.jp/arduino_diecimila/bootloader/index_en.html
.. there are numbers in the x3 from 1-4.. so from the JP7 i count 1-4 to the right?

Thanks in advance sir.

If you look at the Diecimila schematic,
http://arduino.cc/en/uploads/Main/Arduino-Diecimila-schematic.pdf
You can see that X3-1 goes to FTDI chip pin 11,
X3-2 goes to pin 9,
X3-3 goes to pin 10, and
X3-4 goes to pin 6

Looking at the red board, and calling the pin nearest the mounting hole JP7-1, it appears:
JP7-1 goes to FTDI chip pin 11,
JP7-2 goes to 10,
JP7-3 goes to 9,
JP7-4 goes to 6,

So not quite a 1-1 match with X3.  Need to swap the wires for the middle 2 pins.
