After doing a little bit of digging on the internet, I saw something about the LED next to pin 13 blinking when you connect it. That doesn't seem to be the case for my Arduino. However, I don't really know what that means. Also, I emailed the Sparkfun technicians and they said that it might be because every board has different serial ports and I am using the same one as the one I used in school. Is that the issue and if so, how do i fix it? I have already manually installed the driver multiple times.
Please help me fix this issue as I really want to get started on my project.
