avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding

with the lot of enthu we started using the arduino for the first time.and started doing the first project "BLINK"
BUT IT WAS NOTABLE TO UPLOAD IN THE ARDUINO WHY?

THIS WAS THE ERROR DISPLAYED

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 had the same problem.
As I understand, last bootloader works on 115200.
Try it...

Nothing changed for the Uno.

But did you install the drivers?

Where did you buy it?
