    And when you put a dvd or cd in the drive? Still ejected?

    yes, still reject it

    it's like i'm pushing the keyboard eject button all the time, but it didn't show the icon in the screen, only show the icon when i push the keyboard eject button.

    It sounds like either the DVD drive is faulty or isn't properly installed. I'd pull it out of the computer and see if it continues to open and close when it's not installed but still connected to the computer.
