I would take a look at the starter i know you just replaced it but i have been working on cars for quite sometime and have had new parts go badthe only other issue could be a bad battery turn your headlamps on then try and start the car this is easiest at night if the lights go almost out then the battery is bad but if you have alredy tried jumping the car then i would have to say the new starter is faulty

'05 Chevy Malibu Wil Not Start


is the security light blinking on the dash? If so you need to rreprogram the key to the anti theft module. to do this, turn key to on...let sit for about 10 min or so until the security light flashes. turn key off.. count o 5. vehicle should start. if not then it will have to go to the dealer to have it specifically reprogrammed as the PCM and anti theft modules both no longer reconize the key code.
