A battery doesn't turn over. The starter does. Check for spark or fuel pressure if your car cranks but doesn't start.

definitely need more info. codes? (if you have the means to read them) if not, you can borrow, or rent a code-reader from nearly any auto parts store. any previous symptoms? you say the starter is turning? is the ENGINE turning with it? is it trying to fire while it turns?
