2000 tacoma won't start

My 2000 tacoma wont start. When I turn the key to the start position on the ignition switch the fuel pump comes on (I hear a whining sound) but it doesn't turn over. Changed the starter, ignition switch and ignition relay, checked the ground, battery's charged and I don't know what else to do. Please help

The problem was the ground near the battery. The new starter was drawing more power than the old ground was returning thusly the engine was losing power. Changed the old ground with a 12g wire from a piece of romex.
