If you are using windows xp then you go to the start menu > control panel and then select "display" open the "settings" tab and click on "advanced" you should get a tab available labelled "rotation" where you can turn the screen around as much as you like. Not quite sure in Vista, but it should be something similar Hope this helps - please ask again if not or try a live chat - we can probably talk you through it :)

Help.. my acer aspire computer screen has turned vertical on my notebook and the cursor isn't working.. what do I do?

Well, to get the screen back to normal, press Ctrl + Alt + Up Arrow. As for the cursor, try rebooting the computer after changing the screen back to normal. If that doesn't work, try another external mouse to get to the mouse settings from the control panel and see if anything has changed.
I hope this helps! Thank you for using FixYa!

While trying to change settings on my computer I lost the Browser bar ie. file, edit, bookmark, icon for home forward and back feature, address bar

Most probably you pressed the F11 key in the upper key row on your keyboard, and it entered "full screen" mode.
Press F11 to exit full screen mode, this should do the trick.

If this is not the case, please come back and write a comment to that effect, we'll try to assist you further.
Good luck :)

Screen turned vertical

If you can reach the desktop. Right click on the background and then choose Properties. Then choose the settings tab. Hopefully there is an option to change the orientation.

Hope this helps

Mag innovision LT716s monitor

When I turn on my computer the monitor takes a long time to warm up and colors change and vertical lines flash across the screen from right to left before the screen becomes normal again. Now the power light even goes out upon turning on my computer and I have to unplug the video cord and plug it back in to start the screen back up which even takes longer.

Black horizontal lines across bottom 1/3 of screen

This is due to vertical section failure. Change the vertical supply rectifier diode and supply filters. Then check zener diode leakage in pumpup circuit section. Also check any electrolytic capacitors leakage in vertical section. If it is old model tv change vertical height, vertical lenearity presets also. I hope given details useful to you.

Screen tuns black after 15 seconds and comes back after about 15 minuts

The solder joints on the vertical output IC have cracked. This is a very common problem on those sets.
