Take a paper clip. In every cd/dvd rom there is a very small hole on the front plate. You would probably never notice it. Stick the paper clip into the hole and the tray will open. Maybe you have a stuck cd in there. Hopefully it will work after that on it's own again.
Is the light on it working?
You didn't say if you have a pc tower or a lap top as further trouble shooting will require knowing this.

Cd drive won't open


Sometimes a bad disc can cause this. You can stick a paper clip in the hole by the eject button to open it. If it isn't opening with the button though I'd replace the drive.

97 Mercury Mountaineer driver side door won't open. Outside handle flops around; inside handle won't open door


Try a slim jim first, down the side of the window. Or AAA or locksmith. If no luck, remove the seat first. Find the screws and bolts around the door handle and arm rest. Most Ford's have screws around the outer side of the panel. I don't believe your's does. The panel lifts or pops off. Once the panel is off, you can reach down and open the door. Just a note. I have done some to where the panel came out in pieces.

I assume there is a specific reason that you mentioned the DVD drive won't open. Is it because there is a disk in it that you are trying to remove, and you can't because the laptop won't boot? You can open the DVD drive with a pin or paperclip. There is a little hole in the drive near the eject or open button. Insert a small pin or paperclip straight into that hole and push. It should pop open.

Disc tray will not open. I've turned on &off several times and it won`t open the tray. tries to but won`t open


This problem is caused by a loose drive belt in the eject mechanism, you need to open the ps2 and replace the drive belt...

Take off the top cover, then take off the cover from the top of the dvd drive mech... then carefully remove the disc tray and you should see the belt near the front. Replace that belt and it should work fine again

On a couple of rare occasions the drive motor has been found to be faulty, but usually replacing the belt will fix it
