How do I find CD drive

Specs: Windows XP
The tray doesn't open to the CD drive and light doesn't stay on. How do I get to where I can right click on the mouse to try to fix it?

Possible that the power cable may have "wiggled-loose". Is there any indication of life on the drive (blinking LED, spinning up noise) when the machine is first powered-on?

First thing I checked everything is plugged in completely.

Blinking light only stays on while I hold tray button down and does not power up.

Sounds like the drive has failed (or jammed). If this is a desktop machine, it should be relatively inexpensive to replace the drive:

If it's in a laptop, then you'll need to make sure you find a replacement that fits properly.
