Can't open optical drive for HP Pavilion Slimline s3620

Answers :

There should be a little tiny hole on the drive where you can use a paper clip to eject it

once ejected you should be able to see if there are any cogs / bands broken or damaged and if so thats why it wont open normally.

Also is this a laptop or desktop machine ?
