The problem is most likely not with the monitor it is the computer. Some graphics cards have shortcuts to turn the display. Most likely you accidentally hit this shortcut. Most are done with Cntrl/ALT/Delete. Regardless lets get it back to normal. If you right click on the desktop somewhere and select Properties from the box pops up you should get to the display properties. From here select the Advanced button from the settings tab. You should get the Plug and Play display box. Selet the Display adapter tab. Mine happens to be Intel it is usually the tab on the top and takes up the whole length of the box. From this box there should be button for display properties ot something similar. If you check the different tabs in display props there should be a setting for rotation. Set it back to zero. I would deselect the Enable rotation so it does not happen again by accident. I hope this helps. You may find things a different on your PC but this should get you to the right place to fix it. I see this happen a lot. I always disable this on people PC's that I repair for them to avoid calls like this. It is easy to mess up.

Clarification:
What type of video card is installed in your computer?

Solution:
Go to Start, Control Panel, and look for a 'video' Control Panel icon. My particular one is "nVidia Control Panel". Double click the icon. Take a look at the settings and look for one for the display. Look in this section and see if there are settings that will let you rotate the display.

Please let me know the video card and OS that you are using. Let me know if this has helped. Thank you, Binary Bob

Black screen with blinking cursor upon start up


You don't say what Windows are you using.
Anyways, it seems like you have a corrupted BOOT problem.
On Windows Vista and Windows 7, you can insert your Windows installation CD, and choose the "Repair my pc" option.
Windows will do it automatically fro you, and you'll be up and running in a couple of minutes.

I want to factory restore my dell dimensions 3000.


There are three methods available.

1) Use Windows XP System Restore.

If you cannot access Windows XP, the following two methods are available.

2) Use the Dell Operating System CD, and the Dell Resource CD.

If you do not have these restoration CD's,

3) Use Dell Restore by Symantec

With this method all personal files you have, and any programs, or applications you have installed, or downloaded, will be GONE.

(Personal Files: My Pictures, My Music, My Videos, and personal files you have created)

Turn the computer on. AS SOON as you see -
www.dell.com, appear in the blue bar, Press -
the CTRL key, AND the F11 key -
AT THE SAME TIME. (Not shouting)

If you do not press both keys at the same time, and in time, let the computer load. It may stop at a blank screen, with a blinking cursor.

It's okay. Now press the CTRL key, ALT key, and DELete key at the same time.
This will restart your computer. Try again when you see the www.dell.com logo.

If upon pressing the CTRL key, and F11 key, you go to the next screen, left-click on - Restore

On the next screen click on - Confirm

Takes about 6 to 10 minutes.
After the restoration has stopped, click on Finish.
Your computer will now reboot.

Should you need help with Windows XP System Restore, or using your Dell restoration disks, please state so in a comment.

How to access bios on Dell Inspiron 546


As soon as you turn your computer on, and see the Dell logo, start tapping the F2 key.
If you miss this window of opportunity, wait until Windows has fully loaded, then restart your computer. Try again.

(The Dell logo comes up pretty fast. If you miss entering BIOS Setup, {System Setup is Dell's term}, then as soon as you press the Power On button, start tapping on the F2 key. Tap in 2 second intervals)

No Dell Logo on the LCD screen while starting the computer


I would suggest you to try doing a BIOS default settings

Immediately after you start the computer start hitting F2( or Delete key in some systems), It will take you to BIOS. Just load the default settings for BIOS save settings and exit.

This should resolve your issue

You have your video card set to rotate the screen after Windows loads.

Go into your display properties using it's control panel and look for the rotate section. Set it back to 0 degrees. Make sure you click apply and then OK, not just OK.
