Is My Arduino Dead?

Is my arduino dead.
i have the Arduino deicimela or whatever.
i have my code and when i verify its say "yep she's good mate, upload er".
but when i go to upload er it sits there for ages the IDE freezes and then to me it says "look here mate lets get something right even though i said its all good, im just not in the mood so im not gonna upload it until you make me feel better". however to anyone else it would look like this:

Binary sketch size: 976 bytes (of a 14336 byte maximum)

avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00
avrdude: stk500_disable(): protocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0x51

so if anyone can help me that would be great. because the programm im trying to upload is so i have bump sensors for my bucket bot. the previous programm is still on the arduino i cant change it.

i tried reseting the board just after pressing the upload button. nothing.

I heard that it can happen if the program running spams the serial port too fast. Try hitting the arduinos reset button just after you click upload.

I've seen that error before but can't remember the solution.  I do remember that I found the fix on the Arduino forums/site, though.
