Try a soft reboot (Alt-Right Shift-Del at the same time) and see if that clears it up for you.

Curses! I would say that your OS has a messed up media cod somewhere. I would download the latest OS to your PC, back up settings with DM, backup 3rd pary apps with BBSAK and reload the OS. Restore 3rd pary apps then settings. Should take about an hour from start to finish.
