Re: screen has rotated 180 degrees

I have lots of Dell monitors and none of them has the ability to flip the screen orientation built into them. What I suspect has happened is he accidentally hit a keystroke combination that activated a feature in your video card driver. If you have the built-in Intel Extreme Graphics read this link and let us know if it helps.

Rotate screen

There are many ways.

With Intel HD Graphics Control Panel:
Rotate to 0 Degree: <Ctrl><Alt>Up arrow
Rotate to 90 Degree: <Ctrl><Alt>Left arrow
Rotate to 180 Degree: <Ctrl><Alt>Down arrow
Rotate to 270 Degree: <Ctrl><Alt>Right arrow

You can enter this Hot Keys panel by pressing:

Or right click on the desktop you will find:
Graphic Option. Click on it and in the expanded balloon,
Click "Rotation"

On monitor menu. This, I have no information. Couldn't find it on my Dell E2011H menu.

Hope this helps.

After dropping the mouse the screen turned 90 degrees counterclockwise

Probably not the monitor but a software issue. Depending on what OS/graphics driver you use you can rotate the screen. I would need to do is find the setting and rotate it back to normal. For instance if you are using XP and integrated intel graphics you can right click anywhere on the desktop area, left click on graphic options and rotate 90, 180, or 270 degrees. If you run NVIDIA you can right click on your desktop area and click on NIVIDIA control panel. From there find rotation settings and choose what you need to return your display to normal.

Rotation of desktop

Flipped monitor display in Windows. Third-party software utilities such as the NVIDIA Settings have the ability to flip or rotate a monitor's display 0, 90, 180, and/or 270 degrees

im not sure if this will help but if your video card have its own control panel try going there and try looking for Rotate Display or something close to it. Im using Nvidia 6200LE and it has the option to rotate 90 and 180 might want to try it
