I recently upgraded to Leopard using "Archive and Install." The installation completed successfully, and it asked me to restart the computer. When it was restarting, the Apple logo came up and it automatically cut back off and started restarting again on its own. Well, now the computer won't even boot. No startup chime, no noises so that I know anything's happening.

The problem is I have the Leopard DVD stuck in there, and I can't get it out. The mouse click doesn't work neither does the eject button. I think it's because the operating system won't even load. Just a black screen. Is there anything I can do to get the DVD out?
iMac G5, Mac OS X (10.5)
