CD Drive keeps running

Optiplex GX270 won't start up, there was a bad storm and power outage, when the computer started back up it won't come on, only the cd rom is running continuously and you have to unplug it because it won't manually turn off. When it starts back up, same cycle, nothing but cd rom running.
