Hello, I am pretty new to using an Arduino. I wrote a code and ran in on my old laptop but now I have a new one and it doesn't work. I get the error message, "Error Compiling for Board Arduino/Genuino Uno. I know that the problem isn't with my code because to check what the problem was I made the code,
Code: [Select]

void setup() {



void loop() {




and it still doesn't work.

Here's the complete error message...
Code: [Select]

Error compiling for board Arduino/Genuino Uno.

Any help would be appreciated...


When you encounter an error you'll see a button on the right side of the orange bar "Copy error messages". Click that button. Paste the error in a message here USING CODE TAGS (</> button on the toolbar).


Have a look if this helps out:



That answer was previously a little bit outdated but I have now updated it. I think that information will solve your problem.
