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)

LED fun!

i think this little project would be good for your programming and electronics.

it looks like a lot of fun.
