on your laptop turn the system off first then as soon as you turn it on kee on tapping f2 to get to your system BIOS "Note: getting into the BIOS depends on the system Some require to press Delete Botton to enter the BIOS setup" once in the BIOS you can eject you DVD rom from there by pressing one of the function keys on your system this depends on what brand of laptop you have some have F10 to be the eject Botton in BIOS for all DVD/CD-roms to make it eject, also if the Functions botton dont work try Holding down the FN key as well + the function Keys try this one at a time till your cd/dvdrom is ejected, am sorry I cant give you the exact info this query is based on machine type and brand. but this should do it for you if it doesn't this means that your dvd/cdrom's mechanism insdie is damaged or malfunctioning. i do not suggest prying it out, ths may damage the system as well.
Restart your computer and enter set up bios. Try ejecting your dvd rom from there... it that doesn't work, get a pin and insert it in the pinhole on the dvdrom whuile pressing the eject button... that should do the trick!
This is kind of a multi tier question answer that requires you do some diagnostic. First, is the PCMCIA slot and DVDrom on the same side of the computer? Also, do you always use the PCMCIA slot? First diagnostic is to try and boot off a XP cd or recovery cd you should have got w/ the computer to see if the DVDrom is in fact not functioning. Next, if you have the ability to try a different PCMCIA card in the slot that would be helpful.
There is a very good chance the PCMCIA slot damaged your board if you use a card all the time as some devices out there can get REALLY hot and do some internal damage.
