My 3 year old wont listen....At All!

I have a 3 year old daughter and she doesn't listen at all! I am so frustrated and I dont know what to do with her. I love her so much and I feel guilty for being so annoyed and mad at her but I dont know what to do with her. I tell her no and she throws a huge fit to the point where she screams, yells, hits, bites, and kicks. Ive tried time out, doesnt work. Tried spankings, doesnt work. Tried lowering my voice and speaking firm, doesnt work. Ive tried just a simple no, that doesnt work either. If Im on my computer looking for a job, and I walk away for a minute, she turns the computer off and laughs about it. I have to fight with her to get her dressed, fight with her to eat all meals, I have to fight with her to do her hair, and I have to even fight her to take a bath. I am so frustrated and I dont know what to do with her! I have tried leaving the TV off and doing a learning day, but she isnt interested at all! I try to keep her outside as much as posible and she is still nutts around 5pm. I dont know what to do! I have to fight her every night to go to bed. Help me please????!!!!!

Does she nap? My grandkids were giving my daughter fits, and she added FOB like at camp, they had to sit quietly on the bed for 10 minutes (while 1 Beethoven movement played). Some of them started napping and it made a world of difference.

If she naps during the day then she won't sleep at night. I try just taking her for a walk during the day and that doesn't work either. I spoke with my parents and said that we have to be on the same page with the discipline or she will continue to be nutts! They haven't replied but I feel more in control of being in charge of my daughter. But I still don't know how to get her to listen. Any ideas?
