    Pop in your system install disc and see if it loads. Of course you do have the install disc of your operating system? If it reads try booting from the disc buy restarting and holdin g down 'C 'after the chime.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    The only real viable way to try cleaning the drive is buy a can of compressed air and blow a few blasts into the drive. It's possible the lens may be dirty, however, if the problem is mechanical or electronic, the entire drive will have to be replaced.
