AT this point I feel like that's exactly what the problem is. But how can I program it if I can't communicate with it?
It's on Windows 7.
I booted into Ubuntu to give it a shot and it didn't work either.
Any thouhts on how I can fix this damn thing?
It looks like a legit board. Says arduino.cc and has all the info printed in it. Got it as part of a RAMPS package from gadgets3d.com for my 3d printer. It's the last leg of the journey and what should be the last 10 minutes has turned into 7 hours of hell at this point.
To sum up: How do I bootload this thing?
Edit: It's got a soldered chip.
