It may be worthwhile to take it out and shake it a bit (if anything is jamming it or the motor inside, it would instinctively eject the disk) then putting it back in. I doubt it's a virus, that would be an odd one. Either that or try using system restore to a point before it was a problem. If it doesn't make any sounds (or wierd ones) even spraying compressed air in there may help.
Also, it might help if you ran some diagonistics, usually pressing F12 while your computer has JUST turned on will take you to a menu that will let you select diagnostics. Although I'm unsure if desktop computers are equipped with them. Give it a try.
Hope this helps, stay spicy and happy lappying! :)

Drawer won't open

There is a mechanical way of opening it. Straighten out a paper clip, find a very small hole on the face plate of the drawer slide. Insert the straighten paper clip end into the hole and push gently. this will push the unlatch triger and release the tray.

DVD Drawer won't open-- paperclip method isn't working

Unplug it. You'll have to open the cover. Then you may have to remove the tray assembly from the frame. On the bottom you will be able to access the belt. If you're luck, it might be in another location on top or off to the side.

Laptop keeps turning off and DVD-CD-RW Rom won't work.

The turning off problem may be a memory problem, download and run a memory checker (memtest 1.7 or later) it may also be a virus problem
ensure your virus checker is up to date and run a full scan,these would be a first step to try and solve these issues.

good luck
