My car won't start. I tried jumping it, but that didn't work.

What do you guys think it could be? Maybe the alternator? I know it could be a dozen different things, so here's the 411.

When I open the doors, the car clicks like it's trying to make the "door is open" beeps. When I have it hooked up to my truck and try to start it, the lights, dvd player, and everything else come on, but it still won't start up. [rant]

yank the battery and have it deep load tested at a parts store (pepboys/autozone) yaddy yaddy :) you may have a few dead cells

I know if a battery has dead cells/juiced as i put it the car even though boost will not be able to sustain a start due to the amount of voltage needed..
