    Press and hold the trackpad button, or the left mouse button, when you turn it on. Keep it held and it should eject the CD.

    Hold the power button till the mac restarts, then hold down the opition key when its starting up so i will let you choose disc, when this appears hold down either the eject key or hold the trackpad button down, should short you out

    Hopefully you got the CD to eject, same thing happened with my MB 2.16 and just went to this website:

    that's exactly what cured my situation. Keep a firm grip on that thin credit card or business card and ensure that at least 1/4 of the cc business card is firmly gripped. Good Luck. :eek:

    Go to your Start Up Disk and select Mac OS X 10.5 and you should be good to go. ;)
