Answers :

If the dvd-rom drive is stuck you can use a paper clip end to open it. Insert the paper clip end into the small hole located somehwere on the front of the drive. This should push the drive slot open. If there is no disc stuck try re-booting the computer an see if the drive closes on it's own after the re-boot.
