So I just Used Dban for the first time, and I used the autonuke feature since there is only one drive on my laptop anyway.

It instantly filled my screen with white dots on a blue background, and the bottom line of dots appears to be moving very quickly?

Did I screw something up, or is this what it is supposed to look like?

If it is ok, how long should it take? I will link my laptop for stats if someone can estimate the duration for me.

Typically DBAN loads up the white text on a blue background.
I have never seen just dots.
It can take hours to complete the process.
I suggest you leave it until the dots stop.
