I would first check and make sure that you have 12 volts at the battery, if not charge the battery. Sounds like you are not getting fuel. With the battery now charged try to start the car, but before you do that get a fuel gauge to check the pressure at the rails before you start it and after if you can gets the car to run. this will be a good starting point...
