When I turn on my ps3 it will show the XMB background, but no XMB. When I have a disk in it does the same thing to. I currently can't do anything on the ps3 except press the ps3 button on my controller which lets me turn the console of or turn of the controller. Any ideas on how to fix it?

Re: Wont run correctly
It sounds like a system file error due to trying to hack background, so check the CSS template and the theme.css to see if they are present in the theme folder. You will have to take hdd out and run on a pc to do this, you can find how to remove hdd by looking on search engine. If you get a 403 error, that means you are not allowed access. You will have to delete and reload the file from a known working ps3 hdd.

You can enable or disable auto run in the settings area on the XMB, but I've never heard of the disc not showing up at all. Even if the disc was unreadable, the PS3 would say "Corrupted Data" or something. You should go through your PS3's settings and see if there's anything that's not right. Maybe there's a "Hide disk" option enabled. Sorry I couldn't help more.
I had a similar issue.
Backed up and then reformatted the PS3, problem solved.
You may also want to try this to make sure it's not a laser problem:
Load up any downloaded game (or demo), when in the game press the PS Button and you should now be able to see the Games Disc show up in the XMB.
