Clio, engine won't turn over


My cars been driving me nuts for a while now because the engine won't turn over. I thought it might be the battery at first because the car has been stood for a while, i tried to charge it and have now replaced it but still nothing.

When i turn the key all the lights on the dash come on, all the electrics work but i get a very faint hmmm noise for a couple of seconds then nothing. The engine won't turn over, there's nothing. I can bump start the car easy, once its going i have no problems with the engine cutting out.

I have a friend who said just tap the starter motor to see if thats the problem. Any idea's ?
