When you manually eject using the paper clip, pull the tray ALL the way
out to its complete stop. Then manually push back in. Then see if the
eject button works.

Reboot the host but hit the Pause button just after the POST screen
appears and before the OS begins loading. Does the eject button work
then? If that works okay, reboot Windows into its safe mode and retest.
If that works okay, start looking at what startup programs you are
loading on Windows setup and login.
