I already know the trick about holding down the mouse button while the computer starts up, and whatever is in the CD/DVD drive will eject. But that does not work in this case, because my computer will no longer startup. No startup chime. The power light comes on, and that is it. It is possible that the DVD in the drive may be causing the problem, because I can hear the computer checking the drive at startup, and then the startup sequence stops. Besides I need to get the DVD back to the movie rental place.

 

My old PC had a small hole that you could insert a paperclip in to force a CD/DVD drive to eject, even with power off. I don't see that on this computer (Power Mac G5 [late 2005]).

 

Does anybody have any suggestions?
