So I've had my D5100 close to a year, and it suddenly stopped auto focusing when shooting through the viewfinder. However, if I switch to live view the AF works just fine, so obviously everything is setup for AF. This incident occurs in every shooting mode, with every lens I have (standard 18-55 & 70-300, also 18-200). I'd appreciate any input or knowledge about this problem. Thanks!

Have you tried a fresh battery? Factory reset? Also, check the contacts on the camera body inside the lens flange for any damage or crud.
Edit: on second thought, if it all works in live view, it's not a crud on the contacts problem. Do try the reset and pulling the battery.
Thanks a lot! Did the reset and it works now!!!
Good to hear!
