avrdude done. Thank you.

Problem uploading to board. 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. (I have reviewed the troubleshooting page instructions and followed them, but no change in symptoms has occurred.)

Thanks for any insight or help with this issue.
