Re: screen orientation

Good morning pimelles, Somewhere on your PC there is a program that is capable of rotating your screen through a key combination. I?ve read some accounts that claim this feature is built into Windows XP but I think it is only included on the tablet version of Windows. At any rate the typical combination is holding the ?Ctrl? and ?Alt? keys down and pressing the up arrow key. That should return your screen to the normal orientation. If that doesn?t work let us know your video card manufacturers model number and please don?t forget to rate the posting.

My screen has rotated 90%. I would rather trash the thing than pay 1 penny. Do you have free advise?


Open Control Panel>Display>Settings tab>advanced, navigate through the tabs to find a rotate display option.This option has come due to the graphic card you have installed. The option should allow you to rotate the display back to its original orientation.

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.

My display is sideways!

Twist the LCD screen 90 degrees, or install the software on the CD-ROM that came with the monitor.

With that software, your monitor can sense whether it is oriented in "portrait" mode or "landscape" mode, and automatically tell Windows that the device has "rotated".

Monitor displaying everything horizontally

Some monitors don't give orientation feedback to the video card to auto change the orientation when you move from a horizontal screen to vertical. what you need to do is get to display properties and advanced settings (right click desktop > properties > settings > advanced > video card settings > orientation) - you should find an option to change the orientation of the display - correct it accordingly. if the settings are not being saved after you restart, you need a video driver update - find it on your manufacturers website.

Black striped down left hand side of display

Hi Danny, you haven't been very clear I will assume you pushed the auto configure on the monitor,
I would go into the menu on the monitor and reset the size of the screen if it has a setting for that 1024x768 should fix the problem
let me know what you find as I have never worked with a hp W19 monitor, if nothing else set the monitor to defaults again in the menu and that may get you back to having normal screens.

Rotating screen view

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.

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.
