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 :)

Tip

Lost your File Menu in IE (Internet Explorer)? PC's/Laptops


Do the following to retrieve your File Menu. Lock the ToolBar instructions as well, and how to minimize and maximize (restore) your IE screen.

Alt - F. This will bring up the file menu.
Use the arrow keys to scroll over to the "View" tab.
Select Toolbars, (do not click) and move the mouse over to "Menu Bar" and click if there is not a check mark.
Once this is checked, the File Menu should stay. Close out IE and re-open to save the changes. The file menu should then remain at place. You can also "lock" the tool bar as well: Follow these same steps: this time at the bottom of the list under Toolbars: make sure the Lock ToolBar is checked. If not, if desired, click this.
Also, if this does not work, you may have accidentally hit the F11 button which maximizes the screen to "Full View". If this is the case, simply push the F11 buttom to minimize back to original size. If the screen minimizes to it's smallest view setting, simply click the box in the middle (next to X close out button), and it will Maximise the screen, but to normal size, and the file menu will remain as well. If the file menu is not there, hit F11 again, and then if still not there (making sure screen is at normal view). Follow the instructions above to retrieve the file menu.

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.
