Exclamation My Car Wont Start!

A couple weeks back, when i started my car, my alarm would go off. The next day I was chilling with my sister in the car with the stereo on low for 30mins or so. When I tried to start it I got clicking, engine light and car alarm. We jumped the car, started right up. So I had the battery professionally charged and tested. When I put it back in car started right up. I let it run for a couple mins, then turned it off. Went inside for 10mins, wouldn't start, same symptons as before. Then I took the starter in and had the soleniod replaced, thinking that was the source of the clicking. No Difference. Disconnected my car alarm. Only difference was the alarm didn't go off. Im not sure what to look to next. Any ideas???

if the battery is good
check your ground
esp the one that goes to the trans .. those usually get all rusted and frayed

After the batt dies about 3 times, it's toast.

Thanks for the input guys. Im going to check out my grounds tomorrow. Maybe some people didn't read the post fully, but I did say its not the battery. Its puts out 12v and 1000 cold cranking amps. Tested professionally...
