I just picked up a new Arduino Micro for a project, but the first time I tried to upload to it, things went terribly wrong. The USB cable was loose, so the power light kept blinking on and off. When I did get it stable, I accidentally had 'Uno' selected under 'Tools->Board'. I think this was the source of the problem.
I'm aware that the solution for these kinds of problems is to try to upload some simple code while in bootloader mode, but pressing reset shortly after pressing the Upload button. But this board doesn't even respond when I press reset. I have tried it with both the on-board button and with an externally button linking RS to ground.
Furthermore, the board doesn't show up in my Device Manager, not even as an "Unknown Device". The device managed doesn't even refresh when I plug it in.
I know the connection is okay because the power light is on. And I know it's not a driver issue or an issue with the port, because I have no trouble getting a different Micro recognized.
The only thing I haven't tried is burning the bootloader through ICSP, since I don't have the right cable. Is there anything else I can try, or is this just bricked?
