Default Cd drive

My cd drive is spinning and will not boot up. Everything powers up boot I hear the spinning and a clicking coming from the power supply I guess. Also, when it was powered up, couldn't eject the cd that was stuck in it. Do I need a new hard drive?

There is a small hole near the insert/eject button that a paper clip will fit into. While powered up, push the paper clip into the hole, it may eject the CD.

Well, it's not the ejection part, it's the cd rom is not actually booting up(is set as the bootable device) and is clicking. Thought it was the hard drive but tested it separately in my Sargent drive. With the clicking is a kind of whinning sound from the power source I think. Thanks.

I narrowed it down to the power supply clicking and the CD rom spinning but not executing. I have an older Optiplex GX280.
