The led_blink doesn't blink

Hi

I'm trying out the "hello world" on my arduino (NG) but it only get as far as the "hello" in other words, my LED will not blink only light up.

It proclaims that the upload is done and the build-in leds did blink accordingly, but the one in pin 13 only stays on without blinking.

Any suggestions?

Are you using the stock standard code included with the IDE with no modifications?

If not, what rate are you blinking at? Is it possible it's blinking so fast you can't see it?

I finally figured it out the microcontroller was set to atmega8 instead of atmega168 -- everything is running smoothly now... dangerous thing to say I guess.

but thanks!
