Could be the battery. Try turning the headlights on for about 10 seconds, turn them off, and then try starting it.

Can you give us some more information... What happens exactly when you turn the key... Does it Crank but not start? If so is the cranking slower than normal Does it click and that's all? Does it do absolutely nothing?

I had smiler problem try leaving a charge on your battery see if that solves your problem if so try checking the water level or replacing the battery. Also check to make sure your posts are nice and clean. They might have come loose on you.
