Lose the nuts from underneath the laptop and pull out the dvd rom and do the same when fixing it back i.e putting in back into the place you pulled it off from and screwing the nuts back so it does not fall out

For the DVD player, there a couple of considerations.

1. Check if the CD you are trying to use is at the best of its health. Means no scratches.
2. Get the CD buffed to increase its readability
3. Get a good CD lens cleaner from your local CD shop
4. If all does not work, then you need to change the lens of the DVD player

I nudged the loading tray with my foot when changing a disc. As a result the tray is not opening or closing, presumably because it is no longer aligned properly. Is this likely to be something I might fix...

Mechanical timing and alignment is the problem of your dvd player.
This comes when you accidentally force the disc tray to close.
You need to open the cover of the dvd player..take out the dvd mechanical loading system try to eject it manually by turning the gear with your hand.
Make sure that the cd loader reaches the limit switch before it closes. This will return back the right timing and alignment.

I have a dell dimension e310. i think my 2 year old daughter did something to the dvd /cd player and it will not open. i would like to try to replace it myself but i have never opened a pc. how do i go...

Most CD unit have a small pin hold where the cd table comes out, stick a paper clip in and see if the door opens, there may be a jamed cd in there. To change, unplug machine, remove covers, first install what you have such as one dvd r/w or a CD rw/DVD reader. from back unplug power plug, only goes one way, your data cable, keyed only goes on one way, and possible speaker audio wire. scres on side, or clips that hold cd unit in machine, Some pull out from front and others from rear. Check settings on back of old CD R/w as to s (slave) or M (master. set new to same configuration. install, reattach wires - power - data and sound, install screws or clamp. plug power in and reboot. Machine XP or Vista should find new unit. Some replacment DVD/Cd units come with drivers. install if needed. Easy repair, don't worrry. Good luck. Anouth tip if CD is locked in old machine, turn upside down and try to open CD, sometimes the lodged CD falls in place.

Sounds like an issue with the drive. Is your computer still under warranty? If so then I would call dell and get it replaced. If not, then I would replace it myself.
