Toshiba laptop screen changed from landscape to horizontal

I have a Toshiba laptop. My son hit some buttons on the keyboard and the screen has changed from landscape to horizontal. I have to tilt my head to read the screen. Everything else is working fine. How do I flip the screen back around?

To sort out this problem all you have to do is to hold alt or ctrl and press arrow buttons until it goes back to how you want it. (i know this because it has happened to me before!)

Locked keybroad toshiba satellite C660


Try booting in safe mode and see if the keyboard is locked. Maybe the keyboard is bad.

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn itback on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFEMODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will lookdifferent to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this isnormal.

I was dusting my acer monitor and microsoft wireless keyboard and i must have hit something because now my monitor is reading sideways and the mouse wont work with it either. Can you tell me what I need to...


Sounds like you changed the orientation of your display settings from landscape to portrait.
In Windows 7 you can go to the control panel, choose display and click "Change Display Settings" on the left side.

From there choose the "Orientation" dropdown and change to your desired setting (most likely landscape)

Good luck

My son hit something


There is no key combination to turn the keyboard off. Usually what happens in cases like this is the keyboard was overloaded, and the driver glitched. Uninstall the keyboard driver from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the keyboard, and reinstall the driver. This should get it working again, if not let me know, and we'll try a different approach.
