I put in a CD but it didn't start automatically like usual...

Stupid question probably but how do I start the CD manually?

WinXP btw

Open 'My Computer' , locate the drive-letter or icon for the cd-rom drive in question, double-click that icon.

Thanks for the reply but I don't seem to have what you're talking about :)

I guessed the DVD one but nothing is in there

"F" is your DVD drive.
Not all CDs/DVDs will autorun, but most should.
If Major Payne's link doesn't apply...

Download Autorun fix
Double click on fix.bat
When done, restart computer, and see, if autorun works.
If not, reverse changes, by double clicking on backup.reg created in same location where you ran fix.bat from.
