Cannot start car

(1999 Ford Taurus)
My car was OK driving all day last Wednesday and on Thursday I tried to start and everything immediately turned off with no sound from a starter. I charged battery for 8 hours all away till it did not take any more charge (it start charging on a green zone). After that I tried to start my car but it repeated the same thing – no sound from a starter and everything turned off (radio, light). What it happened to my car suddenly?

Your battery might not have enough cranking amps, even though it might be fully charged and have enough voltage. If your battery is 4 years or older, the chances are you'll need a new battery. The second thing we would check for is the Alternator and starter would be last. A simple electrical system test at a shop will determine the problem.
