Look on the front of the drive. There should be a hole. Use a bent out paper clip to push into the hole and the drive should open. ;)

    If its not a tray type drive, and you simply have a CD slot without a pinhole. As long as your Alienware m17x is powered on, you can eject it manually by using the touch sensitive buttons above the number pad. It should go from left to right "Eject, Reverse Track, Play/Stop, Forward Track, Volume Down, Volume Up, Wi-Fi Toggle, Alien Command Toggle, Performance Meter Toggle."
