Why won't my Nikon Coolpix S5200 camera turn on?

Specs: Windows 7
I bought my Nikon Coolpix S5200 camera about a year ago and have only used it twice. I was rummaging through some old boxes when I stumbled upon it and decided to use it again. I tried charging the camera, but it wouldn't charge. l thought it was just the charger acting up so I went to a store and bought a new charger. The charger only worked when I had it plugged into my computer. The green light on the camera flashes when it's plugged in, but when I try to turn it on, nothing happens. I've looked on several different websites and they all offer useless information. I've tried everything that the websites have suggested, but nothing seems to work. Please help!

To clarify... are you saying that the charger will not charge the camera if mains powered?

Does this charger actually connect to the camera via detatchable usb cable; one end, using a standard usb connector goes into the charger, which can/ will also of course go into a standard usb port on your computer?

Many usb charged devices require a charging current that may not be available from one more more usb ports on a given computer.

Is the "new" charger the correct one - correct voltage etc.?
