    I dont know why, but randomly today i started up my laptop and for some strange reason it brought me to a rather different startup sequence. At first I thought it was fine because the first thing that popped up was the windows logo saying starting up and what not but after that a "dell media direct" screen appears. it says "initilizing dell media direct files" or something like that and then afterwards the whole screen turns a rather lovely shade of blue. I cannot perform any actions while the blue screen is there, the only thing i can do is caps lock, num lock, scroll lock, and adjust my screen brightness. if i turn off my computer it will just startup and go to this blue screen again. i tired taking out the battery and what not but nothing :\ what should i do?
