    There should be a tiny hole on the tray there some where...just use a paper clip, straighten out of course, insert/push in and it should release it...pop it open for you.

    You should feel some resistance and then you should hear a click when the paper clip pushes on the release mechanism. Once you get it open blow it out with some compressed air, just to make sure nothing in there is causing the tray eject mechanism to stick or jam.

    I also found this....

    There are two ways toopen the CD drive door if the button just below the drive tray does not work.
    Go to My Computer and right click on the drive and click on Eject.
    If this does not work then you can manually open the CD drive tray by -
    Straighten a paper clip and gently insert it into a tiny hole below the drivetray next to the Eject button. Push the paper clip gently until the drive traypops out, then pull the tray until it is fully out, then you can remove the CDdisc.
    If you continue having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD driveis faulty and needs replacing.
