The most likely problem is a blown fuse. In the under hood fuse block look for a LARGE "maxi" fuse that is blown. If you find a blown one remove it and bring it to the auto parts store to match it up. It will cost about $10 or so.

SOURCE: battery has been tested and
you my have a bad starter ? but first check to see if you have a good ground on the engine block and make shure your battery ends are clean and good and tight...if these things are all good, if you can see and get to the starter tap on it with a hammer not to hard...sometimes this will loosen up carbon on brushes enought to start...Hiope this helps??

SOURCE: the car won't start; lights,
Check the starter and the starter relay or fuse. A client of mines car was doing the same thing, it ended up being two issues, the starter not working anymore, and a relay that was bad. If I am not mistaken everything should be labeled in the fuse box under the hood and will tell you where the fuse/ relay is for your vehicle

It sounds like what you fried is the diodes on the alternator. You are probably due for a new alternator. On the bright side, it's much cheaper than the computer.

If it does turn over and electrical works, then the problem is unlikely the battery. You can try jump starting. If it cranks when jump-starting it may be a weak battery, starter motor or alternator, but I don't think that this is the problem.
Check if there is spark on all cylinders. Do a code scanning (this car is OBD1, you will need to do the scan at the dealer place or to find a BMW OBD1 tool- Universal OBD2 scanner will not work on a 1994 BMW). If the codes return misfire or mixture related errors check fuel pressure, check sensors and parts that determine the mixture (MAF/MAP, AIT, O2 sensors, IAC and EGR system), check the vacuum system for leaks and check the crank sensor.
