Depends on how bad the failure is. If its seized, it won't spin at all, but chances are its still spinning and that is whats making the whining noise.

It is definitely possible for the turbo to blow with that many miles. You could check yourself by taking the downpipe off (or at least taking it off the turbo and moving it out of the way a little) and trying to spin the turbine. If it spins freely and there is no shaft play then your problem is somewhere else, but I bet your problem is the turbo...
