Last week I accidently hit the Dell Direct Media Key it brought up a Dell Media Direct Home page and then an error message.  Dell support could not get my system to reboot even with a reinstall with the Direct Media and Vista OS Boot disk.  I had to be sent a new hard drive.  I have heard this happened to a coworker as well.  Is there a way I can disable or reprogram the key to do something else so I don't accidently hit it again and lose all my stuff that's not currently backed up?

I dont think you can, unless you delete it in hard drive. In order to do that, you will have to go thru OS installation and delete it on the way.
