The circuit has to be systematically troubleshooted using the wiring diagram I gave you. You will probably need a mechanic with electrical experience to do it for you. Make sure he has tested all the fuses using a test light, especially the one marked "crank" in the dash fuse box.

If you are getting noises from the starter, then you either have a dead battery, bad cable connection or bad starter. I know you said you changed all that but those are the only possibilities.
