Question about IBM ThinkPad T43 Notebook
The wireless was working fine until my puppy jumped on the laptop and rotated the screen 90 degrees. Unfortunately I tried just about everything to fix this without luck (using control, function & alt keys on just about everything). After finding out the correct way to fix the problem I must have somehow disabled the wireless because I can no longer connect (laptop says to turn on wireless when it is already on). Could you please help me fix my screw up? Thanks

Have you checked control panel is it showing at all, If it shows but has the yellow exclamation mark against it try removing it and then reboot your laptop should then find it and ask you to install the drivers. If it does this it should then work.

Computer users occasionally have a need to rotate, or "flip," a monitor display to be better able to read long documents or to view pictures.
Because rotating a computer screen is such a basic function, modern operating systems (Windows XP and up) include hot keys and display options that enable the user to rotate the computer screen by 90, 180 and 270 degrees.
Rotating the computer screen allows for more display options.
For instance, when rotated 90 degrees, a 1680x1050 monitor becomes a 1050x1680 monitor, which provides more vertical pixels than a standard display.
Windows XP/Vista Monitor Orientation
Minimize any windows or programs to the taskbar. Click the desktop.
Press "CTRL" + "ALT" at the same time.
Press one of the arrow keys to flip the monitor orientation by 90, 180 or 270 degrees.
The left arrow rotates the computer screen 90 degrees; the down arrow rotates the computer screen 180 degrees; the right arrow rotates the computer screen 270 degrees; the up arrow resets the monitor orientation.
Rotate the computer screen in Windows Vista by opening the Control Panel, searching for "Tablet PC" and changing the "Orientation" drop box to the desired rotation.
Windows 7 Monitor Orientation
Click the Start menu at the lower-left hand part of the screen, and open the Control Panel.
Select "Display," then click "Change display settings" from the left column.
When using multiple monitors, select the monitor that you would like to rotate.
Click the drop box next to the "Orientation:" option. Select the desired rotation and click "Apply." Click "Keep Changes" or "Revert," depending on preference.
Click "Apply" in the Display Settings window.
Click "OK" to finish.
Hope this helps
