The DVD drive's tray might be just stuck. Try this:
1. While the laptop is switched off, straighten a paper clip.
2. Insert the straightened paper clip into the small hole in the DVD drive's door.
3. Gently press towards the inside till the paper clip pushes the handle which releases the drive's door. You will hear a click & the door will eject.

Notice that this has to be done while the laptop is switched off, or you might damage the DVD drive.

Disassembling may be your only option, if the CD is Broken or jammed. Try rebooting and pushing the DVD rom button at boot. I had a DVD explode, I had to remove the drive and disassembling the DVD rom to remove all the pieces.

Can't switch DVD drive


Is there a screw in the bottom of the PC, holding the drive eject button in? Sometimes these will be screwed in to prevent switching them by users, or accidentally, or something.
