ok, this morning i walked out to my car, needed to go one place, so i started the car, and this is what i get (see video links below) right now im charging the battery, as i think it might be the battery problem. But can it be the starter problem? you think i might gona need to replace the starter? or if the starter would be broken, it wouldnt make those sounds. Can somebody tell me if its just the battery? or what else can it be?

Almost sounds like a short in the ignition switch. The dinger going berserk just sounds odd to me. But when the battery goes dead they do get weird. hopefully that's all it is.

I would take the car to advance auto or anywhere that tests batteries and have them test the battery and the alternator. I would bet on it being the battery though.
