Default HELP ME!!!! 50mm 1.8 problems!!!!

Ok, so I got the 50mm 1.8 lens for Christmas nearly 6 months ago. I really like this lense, but I just now realized that this lense is an autofocus lense. (Yes. I'm stupid.) Problem is, it isn't autofocusing!
I have a d80, and I think it should be compatible with this camera, right? I have read about people having trouble with the autofocus, but they would always have a different camera model than mine.
I don't know if I have some setting wrong with my camera or my lense. Now that I know it should be autofocusing, it's driving me crazy that it wont!!! While I think this lense is great, not having to manually focus for every picture would be wonderful.
Any suggestions as to what could be wrong?

**Nevermind! I kept searching around online and found someone's post who had the same probem. As simple as it sounds, if you don't hear a "click" when you put the lense on, you might run into focusing problems. Now it works just fine!
