Canon 450d AUTO mode, big problem!

I have a Canon G-serie. A friend of mine has a Canon 450d, she always shoot in AUTO mode. While she shoots she look at the screen to check the composition.

I was explaining Tv mode and Av mode, and changing some parameters in the menu.

I don't know exactly what I did, but now we cannot use AUTO mode anymore!

Putting AUTO mode from Tv (for exemple), on the screen we see some parameters, but mirror is closed. If I put shutter button, to take photos, nothing happens, Mirror keep being closed, I can't see the scene in the screen.

And If I move to Tv or Av or M, I can shoot. But screen shows parameters, not the scene! to see the scene I have to push "SET", and mirror opens and I can see the scene.

1. How can I restore the AUTO mode, so that I can see the scene (Live view?), and being able to shoot in Auto?

2. whan moving to Tv, how can I see immediatly the scene, without needing to push SET in the back to open the mirror?

What have I to change in the menu, to restore previous mode of use?
