New and Lost

Hey guys,

Im new with Arduino. I just purchased the Uno with the ATMEGA 328P. Im having an issue with the IDE freezing at compiling sketch and uploading. Ive been trying to download the templates from the EXAMPLES tab in the Arduino IDE and it still freezes before going to the board. The weird thing is that sometimes it will go through with certain examples and other times it wont. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Im running a windows 7 with a 64 bit.

Thanks, Taylor

I tried reloading the IDE and compiling blink onto the board and it still wont work. I "verified" it in the IDE and hit upload but it freezes in the "compiling sketch". The com-port says its reading it on com5 arduino uno. it does have(uncertified) at the end but that shouldnt matter should it?

any help is appreciated!

Thanks, Taylor
