Battery Life on Sony Cybershot?!! --please help

Please help me if you know what is wrong with my camera:
I have a Sony Cybershot DSC P200 (7.2 megapixel). I bought the camera about a year ago, and recently, after about a week of noticing that it was taking longer to turn on and off, it is now completely defunct. The only thing I can think of is that the BATTERY has completely died??, because I haven't dropped it recently. I dropped it a few times last year but it never seemed to be damaged. It uses a Sony InfoLithium rechargeable cell, which is not recharging when I plug it into the wall.
Has anybody else had experience with a dying Sony Cybershot? Does this sound typical of a completely dead battery? Or are the internal parts of the camera totally broken?
Buy new battery?
Buy new camera?
I am very depressed. I love to take photos with this camera and soon to be traveling to a beautiful foreign country. Traveling without my Cybershot would be out of the question.
Thanks very much!
