To correct for the sideways picture, hold the CTRL key and press the arrow keys at the same time until it is right side up.

Control+Alt+Down Arrow may solve this, as well. Some computers have the capabilities to flip the display to the side or upside down using such commands.
If this flips your screen upside down, then I've got it mixed up, and try Up arrow instead.

Ive just encountered the same problem and was convinced this was to do with the monitor , when in fact after searching I have discovered that XP has a feature built in whereby if you press ctrl alt and direction keys it alters the screen orientation , this has solved the problem for me, worth trying if using XP, not sure about other OS's.

This happened to my neighbor's monitor, and I looked and looked for troubleshooting info everywhere I could think of for an hour with no luck. Finally, I just stumbled upon the incredibly simple solution just by trying a lot of keyboard combinations. Simply hold the "Control" and "Alt" keys down together, and while holding them down, click any of the 4 directional arrows to move the image in the direction of the arrow. It's actually kind of fun to mess with friends by doing that to their monitors...just don't prolong the agony, lol.

Alt-UpArrow You pressed Alt-SideArrow at some point and the video card rotates the image. -or- You have a monitor that rotates and auto rotates the image to change from landscape to portrait mode. You need to probably just rotate the monitor on its' stand and reset this feature.

Lol. This can easily be fixed by pressing ctrl and the direction button like left, right,up, try that and it should be fixed, it only works on some computers though so I am not sure if it will do anything on yours. it is obviously not a monitor problem.

This could also be that you have hit ctrl-alt-(arrow key) in XP and flipped your view. this is for tablet pc's but works in some cases in XP on desktop PC's.

Assuming you've already checked your driver and system settings, tried a different monitor, and checked the cable and connector pins, this would almost certainly be a problem with the video / signal circuit board inside the monitor.
