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

Dell inspiron 1100 bought used reinstalled xp and monitor had only 6 inch image adjusted resolution, it grew almost perfect one more adjustment now quickly shuts. down image Windows logo with start up...


You may have set the resolution/refresh higher than is possible for the laptop to produce, Try booting into safe mode (F8 on power up)
if you can, you can now reduce the resolution to the monitors default resolution.
If you have not already, pop over to the dell support site and download the right driver for your display

My monitor turns on and I see the Gateway logo but then it goes off and I get no picture. Any ideas on what the problem could be? Thanks!


Hook up another monitor to the computer. If you get video then you know the original monitor is bad. If you still don't get video with the 2nd monitor hooked up then its something with the computer cause there is no video output.

In that case unseat and reseat the memory in the computer and see if you get video then, if not then the motherboard is the problem.

The synchro transistor has died. The only option is to have it repaired. Just had it happen to mine, can't tell you thye cost yet though as I have a loan monitor while dell fix it. Of course they will find more than 1 item i bet. But a tch who works for samsunhg looked at it and told me it would need to have a new sync transistor. Because its dell he wouldnt touch it.

22" flatron (W2252TQ) Monitor Will not stay on after windows logo comes on


Reboot the computer and start in safe mode.(Press F8 at start-up in WIN XP).Change display resolution to 800><600 and restart in normal mode.
Your original problem must be monitor hardware related ie some loose connection or dry solder on invertor /power board inside the monitor.
Please provide feedback and rate the solution.

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.
