Re: CD drine issue
To manually open the CD Drive, straighten a paper clip and insert it into a tiny hole in the front of your CD drive and push the paper clip gently into the drive and the tray should then pop open.
Open and close this several times, then insert a disc into the drive and see if it will read the disc.
If not the drive is dead and needs to be replaced.

If the eject button on the CD drive tray does not work then - You can open the CD drive tray manually by a straighten paper clip and insert it into a tiny hole in the drive tray. Push the paper clip gently into this hole and the drive tray will pop out. You can then pull the drive tray out fully. If you still have problems, then the CD drive may be faulty and needs to be replaced.
Use a pin and insert in the emergency eject hole (usually in the center below the tray) and then you can eject the drive tray with force. It is time you planned for a new drive.
Untill then please insert a music CD into the drive tray and leave it there, this will ensure the eject will work (most of the time). Booting time will definitely increase if the drive has issues, reading or responding.
close to the eject button you will find a small pin hole straighten out a paper clip and push it strongly into the hole and the drivr will pop open.. even if just slightly,, just pull out the draw and remove the disc.. close draw firmly and turn on pc..
I do believe that there is still a small hole by that slot, that you can insert a straightened paper Clip into, and keep pushing until you feel/hear a slight, click, keep pushing gently and the disk should soon appear. IF you cannot do that the DVD will be removable by taking out the fasteners underneath the laptop,, and sliding the DVD out. for repair of replacement.
Follow this solution below, or use a paperclip inserted into the tray hole and it will open for a temporary measure, or go to your drive in my computer, right click and select eject and see if it will open.
Try also uninstaling your dvd in system properties, by right clicking and select delete, then restart pc to see if it's found again, but when the pc boots it should check the drive, you will notice the light on front of dvd light up, if not there is no power or the dvd is dead.
