A CD is inserted into the disc drive and I am unable to eject it, either with the button on the drive, or with the eject command. Can you help?

There is a small hole in your drive.
Try to push a thick needle in the hole this will opens your drive.
Or right click on your drive and select push out.

Hope this will help you

The CD may have been inserted loosely in the tray and shifted inside the notebook during transit or use.
You can often remove the drive by locating a screw on the bottom of the notebook about 4-5 inches along the interior and generally near the vertical center of the Optical Drive's dimensions. Once located, remove the screw and use a small flat screwdriver or nimble fingers to remove the drive. If you encounter even moderate resistance, stop attempting to remove it and ensure the proper control screw has been removed to allow you to slide out the drive.
A second option in this scenario is to remove the flat or contoured bezel covering the Optical Drive fascia. After doing so, locate a pin-sized hole (sometimes labeled EE or with an asterisk) along the face and push it in using a small flat or Torx-based screwdriver, a pen tip, or an unbent paper clip. This will emergency eject (EE)the optical drive tray, allowing careful access to the interior and the lost media likely still inside it.
If you are unable to locate the media after following these guidelines, it is likely the media was inserted in the small space between the notebook casing and the Optical Drive's exterior surface. Remove the drive completely and attempt to locate the media. If you cannot, you may be incorrectly assuming or recalling it's initial placement. Double-check your brain's memory. :)
If you are convinced your media is inside the notebook and these solutions fail to assist locating it, the notebook may need much more extended disassembly to resolve this problem.

No boot Device Selected error!Compaq!

Sorry, sounds like a dead hard drive. If you can gain access to the drive, you should check for loose connections. Also, listen closely to the notebook as soon as you start it up - can you hear the drive spinning? Can you hear any loud clicking or grinding noises? Any odd sounds can also mean a dead or dying hard drive.
Good luck, and please rate this answer if you feel it has helped you!!
