Default Please Help! Car Won't Start.

Yesterday I decided to tackle fixing the wires under the drivers seat for my power windows and locks. I disconnected the battery because of the live wires from the seat. I re installed the seat, connected the battery and tried starting the car but it wouldn't crank. It makes a loud whining noise similar to a vacuum cleaner or high speed drill. The lights on the dash were on as well as the lights in the car. But the beeping sound when you put the key in the ignition didn't turn on. It gave me a check volt gauge warning. I tried jumping it with cables but that didn't help. Now there are no lights in the car or on the dash.

took the battery to autozone and had it tested. The battery had two bad cells. I purchased a new one and connected it. I tried to start the car and it wouldn't crank. It just made a loud noise again.
