I bought a 2000 buick but the battery needed to be charged.  I had the battery charged and now I don't even get a click from my starter.  The car was jumped before I bought it and ran fine.

charge the battery all the way and take it and have it load tested. A battery can show 12v and still be bad when put under a load.

First thing is to check and clean the battery connections. The cable connections to the battery have to be absolutely clean and tight. Second thing is to charge the battery and have it load tested. Most auto parts stores will do this for you free of charge.
