It's second handish, looks new but I got it off my brother, don't think he used it for long. I'm really hoping it's not broken. Would be a brilliant to get it working. My brother bought it new I think. I checked it for physical damage but it seems grand. Would it be possible to destroy it 'internally'? by messing up the settings or something? I can't see how. Fwiw, I'm not a total n00b when it comes to computers, I've been using them for years.
