Okay, then the engine is not turning. It sounds like a starter issue. On the starter, there is what is called a bendix. It forces a gear to extend and engage on the flywheel and turn the engine to start it. Since it sounds like a drill, to me it seems the starter motor is spinning but the bendix isn't engaging. If there is any way for you to upload the sound for me to hear, it would confirm things for me.
Now, if you would have told me the belts were turning and it sounded this way, I would have suspected the timing belt broke or jumped time.
Now, the starter will need replaced. Here are the directions for replacement. The attached pictures correlate with the directions.
