I was trying to open the disk drive to put a CD in. When I pressed the button to eject the drive, it opened, but barely. I will not close back either. In order to get it to close, I have to shut the laptop down, then put a paperclip into the hole by the eject button to get it to close. I tried using the paperclip to "manually open" the drive, but no such luck. Also, there is not a CD or DVD currently in the drive, so there should be nothing stuck in it. Please help!

My specs are
Model: HP Compaq 6730s
OS: MS Windows XP Professional SP3
Processor: Intel Core2 Duo CPU T5870 @ 2.00GHz
