I have now lost the ability to upload programs to my 4th ATmel328P-U chip and don't understand what is happening or even if their slavageable. I'm fairly new at using Arduino but do have a decent background in computers and programming. To test the chip, I compile the BLINK program fine however when it attempts to upload, I get the following error msg: "avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00"
Regardless of which computer I use in the house, Arduino UNO or Duemilanove platform, the msg is the same. The Arduino is recognized by the Device Manager as "USB Serial Port (COM16)"
When I put a new chip into the device, it works.
Any help or suggestions would greatly be appreciated.
Thanks in advance!

P.S. This is my first post to the forum. How do you upload/embed a .jpg file?
