Re: screen turned vertical

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 :)

Can't seem to zoom back to normal on webpage

Hello Smithette8!
The solution depends on your browser...

Using Firefox:
Click 'View', Click Zoom in or Zoom out or Zoom Reset
Alternatively: Right Click on Menu Bar, Click Customize, Drag icon with Minus Plus symbol to the tool bar, return to the bottom right of the open window, click 'Done'

Chrome allows zoom by percentages, back to 100 is normal. The menu is near the top right hand corner and displays on click.

With the above, should you be using I.E., a little click and view should provide you with the items. If not please let me know and I'll load I.E. and let you know what I find!

My son changed the orientation of screen on his ASUS 1005HAB. So, instead of viewing the screen with the monitor on top/keyboard on bottom, you now need to turn the computer sideways, with the monitor of...

He may have been inspired by this on YouTube :-)

Crtl + Alt Then UpARROW is supposed to return you to normal. It is actually all in the Video.

Best of luck.

I must admit I LOL'd after reading about turning the machine on it's side.

My acer aspire 5742Z touchpad is too sensitive or I don't really know how to use it. Every time I touch it something stupid happens on screen. Now it has turned my screen dispay side on and I have to use...

Definitely your touchpad is TOO SENSITIVE!
To modify the sensitivity just go
START > CONTROL PANEL > MOUSE/TOUCHPAD and adjust there the sensitivity by dragging the cursor to the LEFT until it reaches the middle.
In PROPERTIES just re-invert the functions of your touchpad to get rid of the mixed axes.

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 :)

Vertical Lines Display - Recovery shows setup not complete

As per my experience, the problem is not because of your Video Card/Driver. Such a problem arises due to faulty RAM. Change your RAM and enjoy computing.

Vertical view desktop

If you are using windows XP, (vista should be similar) then click "start", "control panel", "display" then select the "settings" tab. select "advanced". Depending which graphics driver you are using you should see a link or a tab labelled "rotation" or "rotate display". You can set hotkeys to perform the rotation if you want to simplify the process for the future. Hope this helps - please ask again if you need more info :)
