What does the volt meter on the dash read when the motor is running? Do you have multi-tester? If not, you should consider buying one, they are not too expensive (starting at less than $20), it will direct you to your problem pretty quickly. You can test the output of your alternator. If your alternator checks out ok, you can check your new battery to make sure it is accepting a charge.....then you can move on to other things like your solenoid, bad ground, starter, etc. But I would start with a multi-tester and your alternator and the connections on your battery terminals.
