What happens if you boot the PC and keep tapping F8
open the CD drive with an opened paper clip, there should be a small hole on the drive, insert the paper clip there, push and the drive will manually open. There is a little rubber belt between to plastic gears, check if it's adjusted properly, if not just adjust it yourself, its pretty easy, if its broken you'll have to get a new one. Usually if that belt is not in place the computer wont see the drive, ive fixed drives this way before.
