Arduino Nano Blink example not uploading

Hi there,

I’m trying to use the arduino nano, however it would not upload, I have changed the Tools to be so that the board is “arduino nano”, the processor is ATMega328 (old bootloader) and the Port to be the correct port.

Here is the uploading error

Kind Regards

This indicates something has gone wrong with your Arduino AVR Boards installation. To make sure it has been fully uninstalled you need to take some drastic action. Be aware this is somewhat advanced and will remove any boards you have installed via Boards Manager:

  • Click the link on the line following File > Preferences > More preferences can be edited directly in the file. This will open the Arduino15 (or similar name depending on OS) folder.
  • Delete all files and folders under the Arduino15 folder except for preferences.txt. Please be very careful when deleting things from your computer. When in doubt, back up!
  • Restart the Arduino IDE

Verify that you can now use your board before reinstalling any packages via Boards Manager.
