Please Help Me Something Is Wrong😭

the lights on the arduino are all glowing i.e. the L,TX,RX and on
when i connect it to my pc or 12 v power supply, all the lights come on. It is not recognised by the arduino software


i tried uploading a blank sketch, changed the serial ports, plugged it in other sockets, other computers, all to no avai. I know nothing is wrong with the board as i have used it before and it was working just an hour before this issue.

normally it would look like this

This was actually for an rfid door lock system. I had made some months ago, i upgraded it by adding led’s and a buzzer and now decided i wanted a little more. I added a countdown timer for when the door closed. But as i was testing something happened and on next reboot i got this error.
My hypothesis is that i connected too many things to the board.
I found a working way of utilizing the analog pins for the 7 segment display as there was not much space left. So basically i had an mfrc522(3.3V), a 5V servo, a buzzer, two led’s and a seven segment display.

WARNING : repeatedly asking for help without allowing a reasonable time for responses is almost as bad as spamming links to this thread far and wide across the forum

Do you see the port appear in Device Manager when you plug in the Uno to USB ?


Then it will not be seen by the IDE

With Device Manager open when you plug in the Uno does the DM list get repainted even though the port does not appear ?

If so then set the option in DM to show hidden devices and look for unknown devices to show up

nope nothing


Sorry, but I am out of ideas
