Normally you don't over charge a battery, when it is charged for some extra hours. The electronics should stop the current. And when your computer is still working it should not have killed your camera. But be aware that as long as the camera is attached to a computer or a charger you can't switch it on.

Depending on how old your battery is and how it is used in the past, the battery could be gone. But it is not only to blame on the last charge cycle. Try measuring the voltage of the battery with a multi meter. The voltage should be a few tenths of a vat above the voltage printed in the battery.
I think your battery will be like 3,7 volt, and when charged the multi meter should read 4 volt. Anything below 3,7 volt means the battery is dead. (at least not fit for your camera)
It is better and safer to charge the battery on an external charger in the future.

My camera's batteries keep running out is there any way i can recharge them or do i have to get new batteries every week?

The battery is rechargeable, in fact it can be charged in the camera and hooked to a USB port on the computer or with the included charger. Probably why you are going through power so quickly is that it has a touch screen for menus proving a little power hungry I would think that two batteries would be plenty having them alternate one in the camera working while the other is on charge.

My camera's monitor/screen is black with no picture

My AIPTEK 1080p was powering on but the screen was turning off within one second of turning the unit on. I verified that the camera was still working and just the output onto the screen failed. I was able to resolve this by hooking the camcorder up to the TV and viewing the menus on the TV and then turning the camcorder off with the power button. I think this problem happened because I didn't do a "clean" shutdown the last time I had my aiptek hooked up to the TV. It is now working perfectly!
