All COM ports not working

Hello! I am using Windows 10 and a UNO board. From the very beginning, I was never able to upload any sketches from any of the COM ports available. The board has not been altered in any way. The error message is always "avrdude: Error: Could not find USBtiny device (0x2341/0x49)". Can someone please help me solve this? Thanks in advance!

Extra error messages:
avrdude: ser_open(): can't open device "\.\COM4": The semaphore timeout period has expired.

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

avrdude:

You seem to be using ‘upload using programmer’ (shortcut U); is that what you intend to do?

Or do you want to do a normal upload (shortcut U) using the USB interface on the Uno?

i used normal upload with usb, then I tried using shift upload to get more detailed error messages

If you don’t have a programmer, don’t use as it will fail.

To get more details, enable verbose output during upload in file → preferences; disable verbose output during compilation.

Do a normal upload and post the results here.

Do you have a genuine Arduino? If it is a clone you may need a different driver, have you selected the correct type of board (You don't tell us what you have).

Can you post a link to where you bought it, this would help. :slight_smile:

@missdrew i did not buy it myself, my college sent the kits

@sterretje i did enable it, but all i got were short forms of the error message :confused:

Show what you got.

OK, I'll go slower for you - WHAT Arduino do you have? Post a photo of it, close and in focus. If you can't, tell us the writting on the chip next to the USB port. If you can't see that, find a picture online that matches what you have and post a link to it.
You have errors showing, but decided not to show them! Why? Explain, in detail, how you expect to get help by giving NO DETAILS OF YOUR ISSUES.
