My screen is turned to vertical and i dont know how to fix it

It is due to your video card program managing your screen display. For a quick fix, try these out:
  1. Close all windows programs.
  2. Hold the CTRL key and press the UP arrow on the "Arrow Keys".
  3. Try also holding the CTRL key and press any of the arrow keys and you should see the display orientation changes.
  4. If the steps 1-3 don't work, try holding the ALT key and press the arrow keys (ALT key instead of CTRL key).
  5. If step 4 still doesn't work, try holding the CTRL key + ALT key + the arrow keys.
These should work since CTRL + arrow key or ALT + arrow key are shortcuts of the video card program that is why you can mess it up sometimes. Just give it a try.

Everything is upside down, how can I fix?

In some windows systems, this requires merely the ctrl+alt+up arrow key. You likewise may have inadvertently pressed ctrl+alt+down arrow to get it like it is now. Works with XP Pro, not sure about others.

Screen on my monitor is turned

Use the CTRL-ALT-ARROW combination to flip the screen around. This is a problem that occurs when someone goes to press ctrl-alt-del and hits an arrow by mistake and does not realize it. I work the help desk in the I.T. department at a major hospital in south Alabama and several of the users have had this problem with Windows XP. You may have to try different arrows until you get the screen turned right side up.

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.

The Ctrl-Alt-Direction key sequence is supposed to be used for changing your workspace. On my computer at work it changes the screen orientation.
Ctrl-Alt-Up - right side up
Ctrl-Alt-Right - 90 degrees
Ctrl-Alt-Down - 180 degrees
Ctrl-Alt-Left - 270 degrees
(If that doesn’t work, try Ctrl-Shift-R)
This is a feature in Windows XP Tablet PC Edition. Which makes sense. But it looks like ATI Intel copied the keystroke for the same “feature” in their video card drivers. I can’t think of a good reason why I would need an always-on keystroke for this on a desktop PC.
When creating a keystroke-mapped feature that only 1% of your customers will want to use and the other 99%[1] are going to be confused by, put in a menu option to disable it and have it disabled by default.
To fix the issue press Ctrl-Alt-Up. To permanently fix the problem go to:
Start >> Control Panel >> Display >> Settings >> Advanced
Where it is after that it dependent upon your video card.
