    I rotate the screen to be vertical, but the desktop remains horizontal. Would like to be able to use the screen vertically, but currently, cannot.

To change the orientation of the display you need to change settings on the video card properties. Just physically changing the orientation of the LCD will not change the display on it. (Generic options to follow are : Right click on desktop > click properties > click tab settings > click advanced > click on tab of video card name > you should find the rotation option on this window)
NOTE : if these options are not available, high probability that your video card does not support orientation / rotation of display.

I'm having a problem with my screen, my screen is inverted and I have to put the monitor on its side to read the screen. How can I fix this?


It is not your screen. It is your operating system. Try to press Ctrl+Alt+Upward Arrow keys on your keyboard at the same time as it's sometimes set as the HOTKEY for rotating the screen.

If not right click on your desktop and select properites. Go to the setting tab or if you have a display tab and it should be in there to change it back to normal.

I use Microsoft XP and I use a 24" Samsung widescreen monitor. Is there any way I can get my programs to fill the screen without stretching and distorting. I have a friend who has a Dell widescreen...


Its probably your screen resolution, you probably want it set to something with a 16:9 or 16:10 ratio so 1280x768 or 1280x960 or if you are like me and like lots of real estate 1920x1200

Acer widescreen extend sides when setting old resolution


You have entered the area between a rock and a hard place. The older games are not aware of the possibility of a wide screen. Either put up with the fat and large images or get a second 4X3 ratio monitor for your older games.
I do not know of any driver to do what you are asking.

Hannspree HF229H monitor and Windows XP. Images stretch to fit.


I had this same issue.

Go into the monitors menu, go down to "Image Settings", go to "HDMI Mode", select "PC Mode"

Hope this fixes it for you. It worked for me.

Menu display intermitent


display is disclosed which produces multiple visual displays in an intermittent manner which includes a display housing having a perimeter wall which is transparent during visual display and is an opaque mirror between visual displays. The perimeter wall of the display housing is a composite structure which preferably includes a transparent cylindrical substrate which is coated with an optical film and an opaque mask which defines display windows. Multiple visual displays are produced by a rotating display base which carries rows of rotating display elements. Preferably, the display elements are elongated triangular elements having three image faces which bear images which create the visual displays. The triangular display elements are arranged in a triangular configuration wherein the rows intersect one another at acute angles and are carried by the rotating base. The rotating base includes three display positions and each of the triangular elements includes three display positions. A stationary observer would see nine different visual displays and may see themselves mirrored in between and during the changes of visual displays. The perimeter wall of the display housing becomes transparent as the triangular display elements are backlit along their entire length by elongated fluorescent or neon light tubes. When the light tubes are off, the cylindrical display housing is an opaque mirror, preferably, about its entire periphery and height. Other embodiments of the invention include a single row of triangular display elements, and a rotating display base which includes display faces consisting of only a single display element.
