Try jumping it. If your battery is slightly bulged on the sides, it is no good. Start with this.

Which engine do you have in this car? Also go to your car open the hood and look at the front where the belt is. there should be plastic covers behind the serpentine belt... remove one and check for the timing belt.. i have a sneaky suspicion it broke and you now have a expensive paper weight.
