Code cant upload to board

i bought what i thought was an arduino uno board online but instead received a WAVGAT board, everytime i write code on the arduino software it wont upload, keep getting this error message, any help would be great, thanks

Problem uploading to board. See Arduino Help Center for suggestions.

This report would have more information with
"Show verbose output during compilation"
option enabled in File -> Preferences.

One of these:

  • Wrong port selected
  • Device driver not installed
  • Communication USB device fried
  • ...

According to another person the Wavgat Arduino Uno uses the CH340 chip.
Make sure you have that driver installed before going further.

.

The WAVGAT (or WVAGAT, depending on what side of the board you're looking at) board doesn't appear to actually use an ATMEGA at all. If you go to the WAVGAT site there is a special driver/software package you need to download to use your board.

One thing is the microcontroller, the other is the USB serial device used.

Post a screenshot of your Device Manager and/or the Hardware ID of the Unknown Device, if present.
