Please run system restore from Start> All Programs> Accessories> System Tools> System Restore and select a settings back to a date prior to the errorenous event. Let the machine restart and your old settings will be restored back to give you previous view of the screen.

Right-click on the desktop and select properties. you should be able to find the correct setting from there (probably in the right-most tab which will likely be be named for your video-card manufacturer).

Rotate Screen on windows


Little trick on windows:

You can rotate your entire screen orientation, when press the combination key:
Ctrl + Alt + [Arrow Key].

Up arrow - Return the orientation to normal;
Right, Left and Down, rotate screen

It's not sure it will work on all systems.
Old graphic or integrated may not work.

How can I get my laptop screen to rotate back to the original screen position?


to rotate the screen in the laptop you can do in two ways.make sure you close all the programs running in the computer before attempting these two steps
1) press and hold the ctrl and alt in the keypad they'll be located at the bottom left part of keyboard..while holding these two keys simultaneously press any one of the four navigation keys(Up,Down,Right,Left arrow keys) depending on how the screen is currently..if its upside down press up arrow key if its tilted towards right press left vice versa.
2)right click on desktop choose graphics settings and then choose display settings where you'll have the option to rotate the screen..

good luck hope this resolves the issue

I turned my screen up side down and cant turn back what can I do


Firstly log on to the computer and get in the main/desktop screen
now press and hold the "Ctrl" key, the "Alt" key and the right arrow key togather .. the screen will rotate. Keep hitting the right arrow key on the keyboard with the Ctrl and the Alt key pressed unless the screen is back to normal.
If it does'nt work you can also try this:
Go to Start>> Control Panel>> Display icon>> Settings tab>> Advanced button>> Intel(R) Extreme Graphics tab (or whatever your video card is)>> Graphics Properties button>> Rotation tab.
It should work
All The Best!!!

My compaq laptop that i have just broke my mom bought it for me ot even a year ago.my sister jumped and fell on the keys and know my screen when it turn on is upsidedown the opposite that it usually is..


check your display settings. Most computers today have a nifty utility that allows the user to rotate the screen and even invert it completely. Could be located in your system tray (along with the clock) This can also be triggered via a combination of keystrokes, which was accidentally pressed when your sister fell on the keys.

Computer monitor screen


Hi gobrew
Nothing to worry about.This is a thing which windows should tell each and every casual game player as they keep doing it now and then .
Just press ctrl + alt+up arrow key and everything would be normal.You can play around with other arrow combinations too.


Waiting for your fixya
