Really need to specify computer details and operating system to get the best answer. Remember the more details in the problem, the better someone can help you.
I believe the easiest way if you are using windows is to just hold the CTRL key and the ALT key and use the arrows for desired direction
CTRL + ALT + ARROWS
Some computers use a little different hot key for example:
SHIFT+ALT+ARROWS
SHould be one of the two or VERY similar.
GOOD LUCK! I really hope this helps you. I am sure that is very frustrating.

SOURCE: Rotated Display

This is a feature of a number of display drivers and is usually enabled by a combination of keystrokes, try control+shift+R or control+shift+cursor key. Look at the display properties by right clicking on an empty part of desktop and look for any options to untick there, usually under settings; advanced.

SOURCE: pls let me know how to rotate back original screen

Right click on an empty part of the desktop away from the icons and scroll down to you see either ATI or Nvidia control panel, if you do simply choose that and in the left hand pane you will see "screen orientation", choose "Landscape" or "0" degrees. Click apply and ok.

If there is no video control panel then scroll to the bottom and click properties, go to dispaly settings and then to advanced settings. Look for screen orientation and choose "landscape" or "0" degrees.

Dell Inspiron N5110 screen rotated how do I get it back to normal


That is a software setting. You probably accidentally hit a shortcut key that rotates the screen.
Go to the graphics options (right click on the desktop/wallpaper), there is probably a rotation option (tab). Set the rotation to normal (0 degrees).

How do i turn my screen back the right way


How to Rotate a Computer Screen 90 Degrees

Perhaps you built your own monitor, and the screen is displaying at the wrong angle now that it's all set up. Maybe you installed a new graphics card or driver, and it appears something has gone horribly wrong. It's possible you're just being creative, and think it would be cool to lay your monitor on its side and still be able to use the computer. Or, most likely, your cat or kids pressed some mysterious key combination which rotated your screen for you, and you can't get it back. Don't worry; getting your screen to rotate 90 degrees is easier than you think.



1 Identify in which direction your screen needs to be rotated. There are four shortcut key combinations, and each will rotate your screen so that the top of the screen is at the top, bottom, left or right side of your monitor; you need to know which combination to choose. Say you are you trying to correct a mistake, and put the top of your screen back where it belongs--at the top of the monitor. Or you are trying to rotate your screen because you are using your monitor differently than most people do, and want the top of the screen to be at the left or right side of the monitor, or even upside-down.


2 Hold down "Ctrl + Alt" and the "up" arrow key if you want to return the top of your screen to the top of the monitor. "Ctrl + Alt + Left Arrow" will rotate your screen so that the top of the display is on the left side of your monitor, and using the Right Arrow will put it at the right side. The Down Arrow will turn your screen upside down if your monitor is right side up. Make sure you hold all three keys down long enough; the screen may go back for a moment as the screen is rotated.


3 Open your "Control Panel" if nothing is happening, and see if there is an option to "Enable Screen Rotation" under your Display options. If not, you may not be able to rotate your screen. This is especially common with older computers, as they have older graphics cards or integrated video If you have a newer computer, you may need to have the graphics drivers updated in order for the shortcut to work.


Tips & Warnings

If pets or children accidentally rotated your screen, consider finding a way to better protect your keyboard not just from accidental keystrokes, but from pet hair and kids' spills. A keyboard cover might be in order.

My laptop screen is flipped upside down and i need to know how to reset my laptop!


No reset is necessary to fix this problem. Screen rotation is a typical feature on many laptops.
To rotate the display on the screen 180 degrees, simply press CTRL, ALT & down arrow on your laptop's keyboard.

I accidentally rotated my display 90 degrees. how do i get it back to normal?



For XP:

Within Windows XP, certain video drivers or graphics card chipsets supporting 180 degree screen rotation can cause the Windows XP display to be presented upside down. This can be (but is not always) tied to lowering the screen resolution in some accessibility programs.
To revert to a right-side up display, hold down the CTRL, ALT and UP (arrow) keys.


Try it if you have Vista or Win7


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

Toshiba 16''laptop. Image sideways on LCD Rotated 90 dergrees. Was on Walmart web site and when I searched the site for an item the screen turned sideways Model satellite A105-s4334


Many video card's software utilities include keyboard combos that can flip or rotate the screen. Try to go into the video properties by right clicking on a blank part of the desktop and selecting PROPERTIES. Look around on the Settings > Advanced area for rotation options. Chances are that you accidentally hit the right key combo to rotate the screen and it had nothing to do with the website that you are on.
