hi Gurus,
You all must be wond3(e)ring why I saluted with "Guru"s
As stated in subject line I am new to Embedded system, and
electronics. and for me, all of you are geneous than me. from each of
your hint, i am going to learn.
Yup, for your reference, I am B.E. IT from reputed COE in MS India. I
know C, C++ and Java with JSP and JScript.
My dream to work as system programmer, doesn't matter if its other
company of mine own. (Why am i working as maintainence programmer???)
But I really work in Embedded system at least as hobbyist.

Now I am starting with PIC 16F877A. I got a development board
(localized, not standard) and a ICSP(whats this?) programmer. I am
using proteus 7.0 and MPLAB.

on my board, there are 8 LEDs which are connected to PORTA and I am
desparatedlyyy wanted to blink one of those LED(so that i can proceed
to other things with confidence). but but but.... those are as good as
dead. I wrote a program for it. whn i simulate, it works fine. but
after writing on MCU it is showing nothing but dead LEDs.

Now I am stuck. I beg your request to help me out. Plz Plzzzzzzzzz
help me. I am stuck.....

FYR: my board schematic: %
Program which i used:

;16f877 a/d test routine

        __config _LVP_OFF & _XT_OSC & _WDT_OFF & _PWRTE_ON & _CP_OFF &
        list p16%f877

        include ""

        ; Start at the reset vector
        org     0x000
        goto    Start
        org     0x004
        bsf     STATUS,RP0      ;bank 1
        bcf     STATUS,RP1
        movlw   H'00'
        movwf   TRISA           ;portc [7-0] outputs
        clrf    ADCON1          ;left justified, all inputs a/d
        bcf     STATUS,RP0      ;bank 0
        movlw   B'01000001'     ;Fosc/8 [7-6], A/D ch0 [5-3], a/d on
        movwf   ADCON0
        call    ad_porta
        goto    Main

                                ;wait for acquision time (20uS)
                                ;(non-critical for this test)

        bsf     ADCON0,ADON       ;Start A/D conversion
        btfsc   ADCON0,GO       ;Wait for conversion to complete
        goto    Wait

        movf    ADRESH,W        ;Write A/D result to PORTA
        movwf   PORTA           ;LEDs

I cannot find a link for the schematic on that page.  I am assuming that
the LEDs are pre-wired on the board with whatever resisters may be
necessary to keep power disipation minimal.

Perhaps to simplify this test, it would be easier to ignore the A/D
coverter output, and simply turn on some of the LEDs directly.  That will
prevent any confusion over what might be being fed into the A/D converter.
