My arduino just arrived in the mail, and i'm having trouble with it... help me !!!! :( lol? Answered

Ok so i bought it, put it on the PC, and dowloaded the program to blink the LED on and off, each second, it worked perfectly.
then i tryed to upload the program to blink without delay and it says, upload failed
why? do i have to reset it? How do i reset it? i press that button but nothin happens, it always gets back to blinking the LED on and off... whats up here?

Make sure you have the right port and board selected under the Tools menu.

Assuming you got a Diecimila or a Duemilanove, they automatically reset(At least i've never had to reset my Diecimila before uploading sketches). I would try uploading the sketch again, and perhaps checking out the Arduino website. You are replacing a LED blinking sketch with another LED blinking sketch, so you might want to try a fading sketch, that way you know when the code is actually uploaded. I hope this helps, the Arduino is a great device once you get it configured.
