Well, that could be a ton of things, but try these things first.
First check the battery, sometimes a lose connection will allow it to turn over but not enough volts to create a decent spark. Are the terminals (posts) dirty or look gross? If they do, clean them with a baking soda and water mix (1:30 ratio soda to water).
Second, check the spark plugs. I have seen them so bad they won't start the car. Pull them out one by one and look at them. What color residue is on them? Is there still an electrode? If it looks like they have been through a war, change them.
Next, check for spark, the easiest way is to remove a spark plug then reinstall the plug wire on the removed plug. Then get a helper to turn the car over while you hold the plug by the wire about a 1/4" from the head of the vehicle. When they turn the car over you should see a spark jump across the electrodes and to the engine block. If this does not happen, try a different location to ensure it is going to jump that 1/4" to the engine block and try again. If you still have nothing, then it is probably an electrical component in the distubutor. Go to a parts store and tell them what vehicle you have and they can check to see if you can simply replace that.
Lastly, if you're good until here, then you are probably experiencing a fuel related problem. You can check for fuel at the throttle body, but if you don't know how I suggest taking it to a shop. It may also be the fuel pump, so check the fuses first. Other than that, it's not a fun job take it to a shop. It shouldn't be expensive by this point.

Over half of GM no starts stem from the antitheft security system turning off starters or injectors. Its that chip in your key. Check out this link, fix it yourself and save some cash. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/
