Default Possible Computer Issues with 2000 Monte Carlo SS

Well, my mom'* Monte Carlo SS is having slight troubles starting. At first we thought it was the battery, of course. Well, I tried to start it anyway just to see what would happen. The way it started sounded like the starter was bad, so I shut it off and tried again. Better. Did it again, and it started just fine like it always did. So I'm thinking maybe we jsut hit a bad spot on the starter. Well, I forgot to put the cover back over the red connection so it would be how it was before hand (whether it was necessary or not). So then I lock the car with the keyless entry thing, and the horn sounded as though its voice went bad (figure of speech). So, I get in and try to start the car and it sounded bogged again.

What I'm getting at is that i think my mom'* car is having issues with the computer. If anyone has some advice, needs more detail, or even wants a video to see what its doing, I'll do my best to get it.

It actually was the battery... turns out when we had it tested the guy wasn't smart enough to test it when it was shut off.
