While trying to simply change the time in between blinks in the basic example "blink" , my computer will not let me change anything in the sketch , and gives me a loud "ding" error. It must be something simple. Any ideas ?

it is not an on screen error , but an audible bell ring

Go to the IDE settings and deselect "use external editor"

Perhaps it won't let you make changes in a read-only sketch.  Try using "File->Save As..." to save the Blink sketch in your Sketchbook folder.  Then you should be able to edit it.
