Hi there.
There are 2 ways you can eject the DVD tray,
1st, double click on computer, right click on the DVD icon and select "eject" from the sub menu.
2nd, find a paperclip and straighten it, have a close look at the DVD near the eject button, you will find a small hole, poke the paperclip in and manually eject the tray.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

Sometimes the hook that retains the tray will not release unless the tray is pushed inward slightly while trying to eject - poor design.

Power off the notebook, remove power cable and battery. Then try inserting a paper clip into the small hold in the CD drive to force eject the tray. Make sure you have powered off device and removed battery before you attempt.
