I am trying to connect to my arduino after downloading 1.6.5 and can not connect. This is the error I receive from avrdude:
Arduino: 1.6.5 (Windows 8.1), Board: “Arduino Uno”

avrdude done. Thank you.
Problem uploading to board. See http://www.arduino.cc/en/Guide/Troubleshooting#upload for suggestions.
So I went to the forum and saw that others had this problem and fixed it by doing one of three things:
- Make sure you use the right board(Tools>Board>Arduino Uno)
- Make sure you are using the right COM Port (Tools>Serial Port> COM13)
- Go to device Manager and update/reinstall Driver using Arduino drivers(DID THAT!)
After trying all steps, and some even more out of the ordinary like go into device and change baud rate from 9600 to 115200, it still did not/does not work.
I know it the bootloader is working because(based on the troubleshooting guide) I reset it and the led 13 is on. I know it has power because the power led is on. I know it is connected to the computer because the COM PORT shows up in Device Manager. I have also tried different cables but it still won’t connect.
I am running Windows 8.1, arduino UNO R3, usb connection on com13, Arduino1.6.5, ASUS laptop… don’t know what else to include
I NEED HELP BAD!!! I DON’T KNOW WHAT’S WRONG!!!
