Defiantly don't screw with it around and try to take it out. Call your local apple store and schedule and appointment to have them look at your laptop.

Will come on stuck on gray with an apple and turning wheel


This happens when your computer can't find and load the operating system. You need to start from another CD or hard drive so you can run the Disk Utility program. Try using your original operating system CD that can with your mac and press the either the control key and the C key or just the C key to force the computer to boot (start up) from the CD rather than the internal hard drive. Then ignore the messages on the CD to install the operating system and find the Disk Utility program in the pull down menus at the top. Find and select your internal hard drive for it to repair. If you cannot find it, likely your hard drive has crashed. You will need to replace it and install a new operating system on it.
In that case, your data may be lost on your old hard drive.
If you have a external hard drive, depending on the interface, plug it in to the appropriate connector (firewire for example) and boot from the hard drive, then run the Disk Utility program from there.

If you have no operating system CD, try to borrow or buy a copy, it must be of a version that will work on your model of computer.

How to force an Apple computer to eject a stuck CD or DVD


Most of us have experienced it at least one, and if it hasn't happened to you yet, it's just a matter of time: a damaged CD, a failed DVD burn, or an unrecognized disc just won't eject from the Apple computer's disc drive. Here's a simple solution to force that stubborn CD out. Note: this tip requires a restart, so be sure to save any open files before proceeding.<br /><br />(1) Save any open files and documents and quit all open programs.<br />(2) Click on the Apple icon in the top-right corner of the screen and select "Restart." <br />(3) Click the "Restart" button on the message box that pops up.<br />(4) As soon as the screen turns black, before the computer begins rebooting, click and hold down the mouse button. See step 4(a) for more details about this step.<br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">(4a) If you have an older model trackpad, click and hold the trackpad button. If you have the new, button-less trackpad, click and hold down the trackpad itself. If you have a two-button mouse, click and hold down the left mouse button. If you have a wireless Bluetooth mouse, click and hold the left mouse button (though you may not have success with the MagicMouse; use a wired USB mouse if you have one available).</span><br />(5) Keep the mouse button held down until the CD/DVD media is auto-ejected from the drive.<br /><br />If the CD still remains stuck in the drive, there is a more serious problem at work, and the assistance of an authorized Apple technician will likely be required.

The container that hold my dvd disk wont come out when I press the open button on my apple computer?


It may be stuck so what you can try are one of these options:

Option# 1
* Shutdown your iMac G4
* Before you turn on your iMac, hold down your mouse button(s).
* Turn your iMac on still holding the mouse button(s) down.
* You will need to keep holding, until your disc ejects as your iMac starts up. That should do it.

Option# 2
If it does not, try using the Terminal utility to attempt to eject the disc.

* Click anywhere on the blank space of your desktop
and then you should see Finder appear near the Apple menu icon located in the upper left corner of your screen.

* Now from the Finder menu, select Go > Utilities.
* Within the Utilities folder. locate the Terminal application and launch it.
* When the screen prompt appears, type:
drutil tray eject

Option# 3
If that does not work, you can also try ejecting the cd using Open Firmware:

* Restart your Mac and hold these keys:
* Hold Command, Option, O and F keys while booting up.

* Now type: eject cd

To exit the open firmware screen type: mac-boot

One of these 3 methods should eject your disc.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
If not, you may have a genuinely stuck CD in your drive and may need to take your iMac in to your local Apple retail store Genius bar or local Apple-authorized service center to have it safely and correctly removed.

Honestly, however, I have this same type of iMacG4- you will probably have the cd out by Option # 2 :)

Will not start. Goes to a gray screen with apple on it then stops


You may need to boot from the MacOS X CD to do a repair. Insert the CD in the drive, and restart. Keep pressing the C key to boot from the CD, once the CD boots, you may have options to repair your MacOS installation, or alternatively reinstall the system software.
