Hello,

I have an issue where my arduino resets every 5 seconds.  I know its 5 seconds more so because I count up to 5 after my windows OS makes its little, "USB Device disconnected" sound, the dew doo sound. 

I think I may have uploaded a watchdog timer interrupt and now I can't get it to stop?  How can I override this?  I know there is a way to put the arduino into an infinite reset, I think by connecting reset to ground.  Could I put reset to 5v and it would keep the whole thing from resetting?

Please help, this is super annoying hearing this sound every 5 seconds.

Hold down the reset button until the upload starts (you should see a blink on the RX light).  Then release the reset button.  This should allow you to upload a simple sketch that doesn't reset.
