Typically an external mouse will allow you to eject with the button held down, especially a wired model. I'd give that another try - or try a different USB mouse and see what happens.

If it's just a read error on the disc and nothing mechanical, it really should just be a matter of getting the machine to recognize that you want to do a power-on eject. Have you tried holding the eject key during startup (i.e. immediately after turning on the power)?

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
