Wow thats strange? check to see if there is a Function key ( Fn on Fun ) and look at the F keys at the top of the key board. One may have come on when dropped. Hold down Fn key then push the F key. Hope this helps.

My screen is side ways how do i put it back to normal


Do you have a rotating monitor? There are a few that can be rotated 90 degrees in the plane of the screen for a "portrait view" instead of the standard landscape view, and they will automatically swap horizontal and vertical signals as needed. If you have one of these, the position detector switch is stuck in the wrong position. You may be able to get it unstuck by rotating to the other position and back again.

There are some programs (e. g., Acrobat Reader) that let you rotate the view of the file you have open, but that only affects the contents of the window, not everything on the screen. I'm not aware of a program that rotates the full screen view for the entire system.

Mouse quit working on my Lap Top it is a Aspire


First of all check whether the touch pad is lock (Fn+F7(?)). If you use an external mouse/ usb mouse, check usb cable connection, as long as you didn't drop it on the floor it should be ok. If the built in touch pad doesn't work, could be caused by ribbon cable connectivity that has dirt or moist. To fix it need to open the upper case

I turned on my computer two days ago and the screen was so skewed on the horizontal that I was unable to view the clock on the tool bar and the start program button at the same time. I have tried to...


Most likely the refresh rate in your display settings is set to high
lust right click on an empty spot on your desktop and click "properties" from the drop down menu or go to control panel / display and once you are in the display settings window click the "settings" tab on top then click "advanced" then "monitor" and make sure it is set to "60hz" (some monitors go higher but 60 is safe for just about all of them then click apply and see if the problem goes away

If it is already set to "60hz" then there might be a problem with your monitor itself
or it could be a monitor setting like "trapezoid" setting but not many monitors have this setting and it would be rare for it to get accidentally changed but just in case you could always try to go into the monitor settings menu and look for "reset" or "restore" function and if your able to reset it and it still has the same problem then it is probably your monitor is giving out and time to replace it

NOTE: the above solution is based on the assumption that you are using Windows XP with a CRT type monitor (not flat panel or LCD)

When I switch my windows XP Home Edition on instead of the usual gradual build up to Desk Top & icon programmes etc. I get the usual large black screen but instead of the windows motif appearing I get...


The results you are seeing are actually from the monitor itself. It's telling you the vertical and horizontal sync frequencies to help you troubleshoot your lack of display.

You'd usually see this happen when someone has set the resolution too high, and the monitor just can't handle it.

Power up, and keep tapping F8 until you get a Windows boot menu. Choose "safe mode", let it boot to windows. Go to display properties, and then settings. The slider for the resolution will now be right down. (left-most). Click it once, so that the apply button becomes valid. Hit apply and let it restart.

You should now boot to Windows normally, but with a very low resolution. Go back to display settings and bump it up one step at a time, using the apply button. (which will revert back one step if you don't hit "yes" within 20 seconds).

That way, you can find a resolution that looks right, but isn't too high for your screen.
