programmer is not responding

Hello,

I'm on a PC, and I'm running an Arduino Uno. It was working perfectly, before my pc unexpectedly shut down. Now even Blink leads to this error:

avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding
avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 1 of 10: not in sync: resp=0x40
avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding
avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 2 of 10: not in sync: resp=0x40
avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding
.....

I have read many posts on this, and tried those solutions, however none seem to work. The selected board and com port are correct. I also tried to change it verbose output and press the reset button accordingly as many posts talk about releasing it after three packets are sent, but when I run the Blink program, I can't find any packets being sent. I also uninstalled and reinstalled the ide.

Have I fried my board/how should I go about fixing this? Any help would be appreciated!
