Not sure why you want a keyboard shortcut, but you can create a quick launch, desktop, etc.... shortcut by opening "My computer" then right clicking on it and selecting "Create shortcut" and then just pasting it where you want it. I hope this post helps?
Good luck.

Create a Shortcut or Hotkey to Eject the CD/DVD Drive


Create a Shortcut to Eject the CD/DVD Drive
Right-click on the desktop or elsewhere and choose New \ Shortcut.
In the location box, put the full path to the nircmd.exe file that you downloaded, and append the "cdrom open" command to the end of it, adjusting the drive letter to match your disc drive:
"C:\path\to\nircmd.exe" cdrom open D:
Note the location of the quotes.. if you are using a path with spaces in it, you need to make sure the quotes are only around the path to the executable, and the arguments should be placed after the quote.
Give the shortcut a meaningful name, like Eject CD or something like that, and you'll have a new icon (read below on how to use the cd-rom icon as shown)
Create a Shortcut to Close the CD/DVD Drive
You can follow the same exact instructions as above, but instead of "cdrom open" just substitute "cdrom close".
Assign a Hotkey to the Shortcut
Now that we have a shortcut, we can assign a hotkey to the shortcut by right-clicking on the icon and choosing Properties. On the Shortcut tab you'll see a place to assign the Shortcut key:

I have the restore dvd for emachines t2984 and neither the cd drive nor dvd drive will read the disk... is there a keyboard shortcut to restore it?


try booting into your bios for most commercial desktops your short cut key would be f8 if not try hitting delete on start up in all case you should be able to get into your bios when your in the bios make sure the cd is the first boot device not your hard drive. also key note make sure every thing in that list is off just make your cd rom the only thing to boot.
