Can't Upload To New Nano V3

Hi! Just received a new nano v3 and I can't seem to upload programs to it.
Here are the errors that I get

avrdude: ser_open(): can't open device "\\.\COM3": The system cannot find the file specified.

Problem uploading to board.  See https://support.arduino.cc/hc/en-us/sections/360003198300 for suggestions.

I saw a post talking about this stuff so here are my settings for that thing

I'm kind of a newbie to arduino having only used an elegoo mega2560 before

The serial port of the Nano is not being recognized by your computer.

Make sure the USB cable is completely plugged into both the Arduino board and the PC.

You may have a damaged/defective or charge-only USB cable. Try a different cable.

Either of the above can result in the power connections being made (and thus LED lights on the board), but no data connections (and thus no port for the board).

I have checked that the mini usb cable is plugged firmly into both my computer and the arduino and the problem is still persisting. I don't have another cable to test it with though

the cable came with the arduino

Check your device manager. You need to install the drivers for the board in Windows or whatever OS you are using.

How can I install the drivers for it? I am using windows.

Right click
Select update driver
Use automatic update
Click done
Check it again, sometimes they need two drivers
If it's finished have fun with your new Arduino

Windows couldn't find any drivers

Please post a picture of your board. It may be a clone with a different serial chip.
I need to be able to read the info on the chips in the picture, please

is where I bought it from

the arduino chip says:
MEGA328P
U-KR
35473D
2032D14 or 2032D[4 (some kind of weird character that might be a print mistake)

You need a ch340 driver for Windows.
Read and follow these directions: How to Install CH340 Drivers - learn.sparkfun.com

thank you! I will try that now

Windows now recognizes the device as USB-SERIAL CH340 (COM 6), but now after taking almost 5 minutes to upload the program, I get these errors

Did you shut down the program and try a reboot?

I tried relaunching arduino, should I reboot my computer?

just rebooted my computer, it still fails to upload
