Hello,
I am using an Arduino UNO on Windows XP with Arduino IDE 1.6.8

After not using it for a month I tried to upload a sketch into it yesterday
but did not work and instead gave me the following error:

Arduino: 1.6.8 (Windows XP), Board: "Arduino/Genuino Uno"
Error:

Problem uploading to board.  See http://www.arduino.cc/en/Guide/Troubleshooting#upload for suggestions.


I even tried to upload to the board without the ATMEGA328p chip


And the board behaved the same way as with the chip.

The Rx led flashed 3 time just when the upload started
then a few flashes after long intervals and finally the upload
failed.

The heartbeat on PIN 13 when the board is powered up or reset does
not seem to work anymore.

Is my chip fried...

Or there are problems with the bootloader.

It worked just fine a month ago.

The board and port are selected correctly.

The ATMEGA16U2 seems to be fine as it successfully passed the loopback test.


The code I was trying to upload was BareMinimum

Code: [Select]
void setup() {
  // put your setup code here, to run once:

}

void loop() {
  // put your main code here, to run repeatedly:

}


  • Should I buy a new chip.
  • Or should I buy a new arduino.
  • Or should I flash a new bootloader on the chip.


I am a newbie at electronics. :smiley-confuse:  :smiley-confuse:  :smiley-confuse:  :smiley-confuse:  :smiley-confuse:  :smiley-confuse:
Any help is Appreciated. :)  :)

Why do you need to scream?

But did you select the right port? (how do you know?)

Does the Arduino show up in device manager?

Did you do a loop-back test as suggested?

And a bonus questions, why do you use outdated and insecure XP? ::)
Use fricking code tags!!!!
I want x => I would like x, I need help => I would like help, Need fast => Go and pay someone to do the job...

Yes I selected the right port because the device driver mentions so.

Yes,It does show up.

Yes I did a loop-back test and my arduino passed successfully.

Will you pay for win 7 . :D  :D

Then maybe the bootloader is corrupted or the chip broken. If you have a programmer or a second Arduino you can try to re-burn the bootloader.

And Windows 7, no. But I would definitely pay for a Windows 10 key if I was running a XP machine connected to the internet. Under the hood Win 10 is better then Win 7 but yeah, you have to manually disable all the telemetry stuff :/

Is it Possible to test the chip with a circuit on a Breadboard because I don't have another Arduino.
