2006 525i Battery problem or starter?

My car died out a few months ago. I jumped it and was working up until now. Everything worked, locks, windows, radio, etc, but it just wont start. I jumped it again, let it run for about 30 mins, and then turned it off. A few hours later, i tried to start it, and it won't start. Now the steering wheel lock is engaged. I'm guessing I need a new battery, which i hope that it the case, or will i need to change the starter as well? The specialty shop I go to is closed today, and i need some help ASAP! Thanks guys.

I am willing to bet it is your battery. Go have it tested at a battery shop.

I would say battery for sure. Definitely have it tested to be sure though. That will also need to be registered once it is replaced.
