My 1990 Toyota Corolla Drains The Battery

(1990 Toyota Corolla)
Out of no where I suddenly had a dead battery. I thought it was just the battery's time to go, so I bought a new one. Everything was fine for about 48 hours, then I go to start up my car the next evening and nothing...I thought there was some sort of short that was draining my battery over night, so I got a jump start from my friend and drove the car around for about 30 minutes hoping to charge the battery a bit and see how long the charge will last. I got home turned the car off, and just out of curiosity checked to see if I could start it again, and nothing happened. Any thoughts?

sounds like an alternator failure. have the voltage checked at the beattery. should be about 14-14.5 volts.

I'm hoping it's not the alternator, I just got that replaced about 18 months ago. Any other suggestions?

Sounds like the alternator...a simple and relatively inexpensive thing to replace if you go rebuilt.
