I just bought an Arduino (Duemilanova) 2 days ago, my first foray into microcontrollers etc. Only trouble is I can't upload to it, not even blink will upload. Specifics of the problem: Windows XP I have installed both drivers I am selecting the correct port I click upload and the screen just says "Uploading to I/O Board" indefinitely. The tx light flashes, rx light does nothing. The aurdino program freezes (the Logitech conflict mentioned in the documentation is not running). To get it to stop I either unplug the board or hold the reset button. I have gone through every step of the troubleshooting and got nothing. I have tried this on two computers, bought a different cable and even bought a new Arduino. No change. Just a frozen program and a blinking tx light.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Pointing and laughing is also welcomed although less appreciated.
