Problems with MSP_EXP430G2 LaunchPad

Good morning, just 2 days ago I recieved an MSP launchpad directly from the TI store. I downloaded Energia, successfully installed the drivers, when I connect the board to my computer (Windows 7) the demo starts normally, but if I try to upload it doesn't work, error "No unused FET found".. Suggestions? I didn't installed the crystal but it is not needed, right? I double-checked the jumpers and everything seems to be ok, it has the same problem even if I chance MCU

    "No unused FET found"

    Either the LaunchPad doesn't enumerate properly, or it is hijacked by a software that automatically grabs all devices which look as if they could be of interest. Like a gaming mouse driver, or a smartphone syncing app.

    Thanks a lot, I tried on another computer and it works perfectly

  • HI LUCA PEZZOLLA.

    first try to uninstall energia and reinstall directly in C:/.
    this worked for me.

    I have run into this problem in linux if I just use nemo or nautilus and double click on "energia" on the other hand if I open a terminal and type "sudo ./energia" and hit return, enter my password, the interface comes up and allows me to program the board.

    Hope this is helpful
