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?

... and don't forget to set the programmer type as well.  Further, once the programmer type is set, be sure that it's configured for the proper port.

Three very likely solutions provided by the contributing experts.  Points divided evenly.  Despite the lack of closing input from the questioner, the question should be retained for future reference.
