Many laptops that have slot-loading DVD drives (those that insert the optical disk directly, rather than placing it on a tray) typically lack an accompanying eject button on the drive itself. The eject button is often located elsewhere on the laptop, often alongside other buttons to control volume, screen brightness, wifi, etc... These buttons typically require an OEM specific driver which can be acquired from your laptop manufacturer's website. If you can't find them, or this doesn't work, try pete's advice and right-click on the drive in My Computer to eject it.

Go to the Desktop and double-click My Computer. Windows Explorer will open; find your DVD drive and right-click it. Choose "Eject" from the list and the drive should open.

Good luck, let us know what happens. If it doesn't work, you might have to disassemble the laptop, which might be out of your comfort zone.
