This is ok, either someone's yanking your chain, or you accidently activated an ability of your graphics chip, this mode is for "tablet" PCs which have a portrait mode. you most likely have an icon in the bottom left of your screen by the clock for graphics settings, one of these will be to rotate the screen.

it is also possible that this ability may be programmed to one of the hotkeys, however without model info I cannot tell.

your mouse should have flipped too, if not then someone may be fooling with you..

check if you can click your icons... if you cannot then right click on the desktop and change the wallpaper on your desktop, also re-enable your icons from this menu, you may also need to unhide your start bar


hope this helps

My screen is sideways on my pc


Hi, Press ctrl + alt + plus the up arrow will usually turn it back. otherwise keep the ctrl = alt down and try the different arrows or the F1. One of those should do it. Cheers Barry.

When logging into windows vista, screen says locked. Once I type password in the desk top appears briefly and then goes back to login screen


Boot up your PC then when the bios screen disappears press F8 (to give you menu options like safe mode) one of these options is a vista repair option.....choose that and your pc should boot into windows properly....I believe this is a corrupt winlogon.exe....

Monitor screen went sideways


Try the ALT key and the Up Arrow.
If that does not work, try CRT ALT UP and DOWN arrows till you can rotate your display.
