Is there not a small button to press to open it? The small hole referred to above is for emergency use - when the drive refuses to eject the disk and open the tray.

Also possibly if you right click on the drive icon in MyComputer or Windows Explorer it may also include "eject" as an option... And if so it will logically eject the disk and open the tray... I think it may also act as an "open the tray" too if no disk present; but not entirely sure about that last option (when no disk present).

But model number would be most useful here...

If you haven't got a users manual, download it from here:

Is there a small hole next to the tray? If so, you can stick a paper clip in there to disengage the manual release. Most CD/DVD drives have this.

"Is there not a small button to press to open it?"
Yep, that's what I reckon too trvlr, that's why I showed the OP how to get the manual.
Those laptop CD rom buttons are very hard to see/find.
