stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding

I build the yourduino robot kit with the robored board. I ran the program blink last night, and now whenever i try to run it it says stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding. Can anyone help me? I apologize for being really bad at this programming language, I got it yesterday.

I attached the file with an image of the fully set up robot. Sorry about how cluttered my desk is.
