I'm trying to upload some code to an non-arduino nano with the CH340G chip, and the avrdude refuses to let me upload. The error I'm getting is:

Using Port                    : COM4

Overriding Baud Rate          : 115200

avrdude done.  Thank you.

I've tried installing the drivers for the CH340 chip following this guide but have had no luck. I've also tried uploading to my arduino uno and my arduino micro (both are arduino brand) with no problems. I'm running Windows 10, Arduino IDE 1.8.5

Any ideas?

Arduino has recently changed to using a different bootloader on their official Nano boards that communicates at 115200 baud rather than the previous 57600 baud. Support for these new boards was added in Arduino AVR Boards 1.6.21. The new Nano board definition is not compatible with old Nanos and likely most 3rd party Nanos so backwards compatibility is provided via the Tools > Processor > ATmega328P (Old Bootloader) menu selection.
