Welcome to the forum

It's difficult to say for sure what's going on. The problem may be the charger, the cable or the charging circuit in the tablet. I doubt your brother could have caused that if that makes you feel any better.

It will charge plugged into a running PC if the cable is OK but it will charge slowly. My first suggestion would be to plug it into the PC for 4-5 hours then see if it starts up as it sounds like it may just be outa gas.
