Well my dad has recently bought our Arduino. Yesterday I was exploring the environment I found how to save , open and open the serial monitor.

My problem is that every time I try to upload a project, an exception occurs "programmer didn't respond the command"
I've tried this for about 100-150 times but it doesn't get any better. What should I do?
