Uploading Problems

Recently I received my arduino uno. I uploaded the first 2 programs and they worked fine. And verifying the program also works fine. But now when I try and upload a program, no matter what program it is, the uploading bar gets to the end, waits there for a couple minutes and then gives me this error:

avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 1 of 10: not in sync: resp=0x00 avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 2 of 10: not in sync: resp=0x00 avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 3 of 10: not in sync: resp=0x00 avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 4 of 10: not in sync: resp=0x00 avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 5 of 10: not in sync: resp=0x00 avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 6 of 10: not in sync: resp=0x00 avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 7 of 10: not in sync: resp=0x00 avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 8 of 10: not in sync: resp=0x00 avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 9 of 10: not in sync: resp=0x00 avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 10 of 10: not in sync: resp=0x00

I would love it if someone could help me fix this so I can start using my arduino to make projects again! :) :)

Do you have anything connected to pins 0 or 1? Those are used for uploading programs.

Did you enable the watchdog timer in your last sketch and tell it to reset the part on WDT timeout?

If neither of those apply to you, enable verbose uploads and post the output (since you claim it doesn't fail until the end - usually that error happens as son as it starts talking to the board)

None of the first two apply to me, but how do you enable verbose uploads? Sorry, I received my arduino 2 days ago so im still not very experienced. Thanks!

If it worked fine before and now it does not, are you 100% sure the right COM port is selected? Windows had the urge to assign a new number if you plug it into a new USB port ;)

Well the only comport I can choose from is COM1. So im pretty sure im doing that right
