I had an altenator replaced and a new battery. Once I replaced them my radio doesn't work or the DVD/ I only have one fuse in the incar panel for radio amplifier. Evey time I replace a fuse it blows. I have lost all the chimes and since then I have had problems with keyless remote locking the doors.
Does the radio have a fusible link that may of been blown or is the radio fried.
I have checked all the fuses incar and in the engine compartment and it seemd that all are ok, except for the one that says radio amplifier

Could be. The three most things I replace for power draws are the alternator, starter, and the radio. Fourth things are the light switch and ignition switch. There are many other things that can drain a battery. Get it on a scanner and have it diagnosed. It will cost. But it is cheaper than pay a thousand dollars for the aboved mentioned.
Being a Brit I don,t know the car but would suggest that your radio/CD might be security coded which works as a security device if someone steals it. There should be instructions somewhere in your glovebox manual telling you how to re-code it. The code would be supplied with the radio and noted somewhere. If not the Pontiac dealer may be able to help you if you quote him your VIN. Some "mechanics" foolishly write the code on the radio unit label - it's stupid but you could try there first!
did you hook the cables up backwards (ground to positive) as this could short out your electronics. are there any other electronic issues. if you didnt and everything else is ok you radio may have an anti-theft program. you can try disconnecting the ground connection to the battery for about 30 secs and reconnecting it. if it still doesnt work look in your owners manual how to reset the computer also check your fuses.. if all fails you may need to get the radio reprogrammed good luck
Try tapping on the side of the starter with a pry bar and a hammer. Do not hit too hard though. Hitting too hard will damage the starter. If the engine starts try cleaning the electrical contacts on the starter. If the problem persists replace the starter.
