I don't have any of the caps or the indication diodes. I'm wondering if the caps are critical? They don't seem like they should be.I have power to the correct pins and my chip is behaving erratically.
the 328 has internal caps on the clock inputs.
This is of note and should be made into a sticky: the 328 has internal caps on the clock inputs. It works with a a 16mhz crystal installed between the two pins. There is no need for caps and a ceramic oscillator doesn't work.
