avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding

Hello all,

Didnt want to make my first post one of these but I am having issues. I keep getting the avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding Code when I try uploading sketches to my arduino. I have been using it fine for a week then it just started today.

Running Mac OSX 10.9.1, on an intel based Mac. Arduino Uno board. Can get any other specs needed.

So far I have tried all of my different USB ports with no luck The proper board is selected. Deleted and Reinstalled the Arduino program from the computer.

Not sure what is going on or what to do. Anyone have any ideas?

Bump,

Can anyone assist me? I really need this arduino for my class so if there is an issue with the arduino id like to get it replaced ASAP
