Need some help!

I just got an arduino uno from radioshack and when I try to upload a program it says this…
“avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00”
it says done uploading but the program never works. can someone plz help me!

Have you installed your Uno? Does it appear on Device manager? Have you chosen as board your arduino Uno? "Tools->Board->Arduino Uno" Is the correct port selected? "Tools->Port->Comx"

If nothing above works , Then, what is your operating system ? What version of IDE are you using ?

thx for the help! I got it working! i was using the wrong serial port! lol
