If you're on Steam, then you don't need the disc anymore once its been installed once. Steam remembers your games and all its data, one you install it the first time ever, the disc is useless.
And to solve the disc drive not opening, take the drive out and go and buy a new one.
Hope this helps ;)

You could check the (online) manual for your PC, which usually explains how to add or replace components. If all else fails, try calling Dell for technical support.
If you're completely stuck, take it to a local computer store, and pay them to replace the drive for you.
