Now I don't know what to do. I really need my car, please help

Hi. This is a rare problem to have installing a good battery should not make the alarm system go off. I think there my be a problem with the alarm system shutting your car down because something has shorted the system causing it to be on constantly. There also could be a blown fuse for the ignition system causing it not to start. Also, a bad battery can cause this problem as well and the battery you had charged should be checked. I suggest you have a certified technician from YourMechanic come and inspect your battery system and alarm system.
