Hi, I'm new to arduino and programing. and I'm trying to get a LCD to work.

I used this sketch.
http://arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/LiquidCrystal

When i Upload the sketch, all i get is squares on the display. like no data is transferd to the LCD display from the arduino.

Please help, what I'm i doing wrong?

You obviouzly didn't look carefully enough at the 'sticky' post called "How to use this forum - please read."   Try again and pay particular attention to item #11.  A photo of your setup will help as well.

Like floresta said, without much information, you can't really get a specific answer.
Though if I remember correctly, when I had that problem I think I missed to do "lcd.begin()" or I initialized the wrong display size(The example is for a 16x2 display while I have a 20x4)

It was a while since I had the problem and I don't have it connected right now so I cant test.
