I've installed FLIP, and I can see how it should normally work, however since the board isn't communicating with the computer at all, I don't think I can do much from here. The guide you linked presupposes that the computer at least recognizes it as an unknown device or that you're trying to wipe the existing firmware after having been able to use the board successfully in the past. For clarity I'm on the Uno R3. Should I consider just buying a new board, or am I missing something entirely? Thanks

You should put the board in dfu mode first. Read the instructions carefully

Does the fact that I'm on the Uno R3 (which has an ATmega328) put me in a different situation from this guide which focuses on the ATmega8U2? I'm reading the instructions very carefully and nothing points me towards a solution that allows me to get the thing into DFU mode. This article looked promising: http://academic.cleardefinition.com/2012/07/31/using-dfu-programmer-with-an-arduino-uno-r3/ but I'm still utterly confused. Also, this thread http://arduino.cc/forum/index.php/topic,92148.0.html seems to be aiming at a solution for a similar problem but doesn't appear to arrive at one. Whenever I tap the appropriate pins that should cause it to reset simply restart the board and it goes back to blinking. I hope I'm not missing anything glaring. Thanks

8u2 is the small uC, not the big atmega. Yours have that one too

Ah, thanks for helping me with that distinction. I see now that I have a 16U2 as opposed to the 8U2. I haven't been able to find a way to get the 16U2 into DFU mode so far...
