you got to love newbies lingo ;)

your pc is not auto running cd's. it could be something as simple as the auto run turned off. check with explorer to see whats on the cd drive. if nothing most likly the cd drive has gone faulty. replace it.

Hard Drive:

# A rigid non-removable disk in a computer and the drive that houses it. Hard disks store more data and can be accessed quicker than floppy disks.

# The primary storage unit on PCs, consisting of one or more magnetic media platters on which digital data can be written and erased magnetically.

You mean your PC or computer - the entire unit containing your hard drive, optical drive, CPU, RAM etc.
