check your battery cables to see if the cables themselves are corroded and also check the connections where they connect to the vehicle that they are clean
positivecable will connect at the starter and the negative will connect to the engine some where.
if this does not help then have your starter tested to see if it is dragging. as it could be the armature or the brushes in the starter.

The instructions for installing a new alternator usually read to fully charge the battery (12.3 - 12.8 volt range). Otherwise, the alternator will be damaged when it initializes. I have seen some extreme damage result from installing a new alternator with a low-charge battery. The torque required to turn an alternator when damaged in this scenario is unbelieveable!

Sounds like you have something draining the battery down. You probably something staying on thats not supposed too. I would start with the brake circuit.

if it was stone dead it would not charge over 1/2 hr. Probably bad battery. Take it to pep boys/auto zone, they usually test batteries out of the car 4 free at the parts counter
