arduino board not responding to blink sketch

i just bought this arduino board today and i download the software i tried uploading the blink example but it kept uploading and later resulted into a error thats the error

See http://www.arduino.cc/en/Guide/Troubleshooting#upload for suggestions.

This report would have more information with "Show verbose output during compilation" option enabled in File -> Preferences.

Correct com port selected? COM1 is the default after installation of the IDE, but is hardly ever the Arduino.

Correct board selected? Do you indeed have an Uno?

Hello, 1/ check that you have selection "Arduino/Genunio Uno" in Tools > Board: 2/ Check that you have selected the right port, if you don't know, go to Windows device manager, plug your arduino, you should see the port number added. use it for the Arduino IDE configuration (Tools > Port). 3/ check the cable. 4/ if you have any other device connected to the Arduino. remove it. (especially devices connected to serials line)..

Hope it helps.
