Change drive orientation


Hi there,


what orientation are we talking about? CDROM and DVD Drives work sideways and horizontally, notice the plastic holders when you open your drive door, the cd/dvd won't drop to the floor...


No action is required on your part, everything will work as normal?


Any question? let me know.

Change screen orientation


Computer users occasionally have a need to rotate, or "flip," a monitor display to be better able to read long documents or to view pictures. Because rotating a computer screen is such a basic function, modern operating systems (Windows XP and up) include hot keys and display options that enable the user to rotate the computer screen by 90, 180 and 270 degrees. Rotating the computer screen allows for more display options. For instance, when rotated 90 degrees, a 1680x1050 monitor becomes a 1050x1680 monitor, which provides more vertical pixels than a standard display.

Windows XP/Vista Monitor Orientation
Minimize any windows or programs to the taskbar. Click the desktop. Press "CTRL" + "ALT" at the same time. Press one of the arrow keys to flip the monitor orientation by 90, 180 or 270 degrees. The left arrow rotates the computer screen 90 degrees; the down arrow rotates the computer screen 180 degrees; the right arrow rotates the computer screen 270 degrees; the up arrow resets the monitor orientation. Rotate the computer screen in Windows Vista by opening the Control Panel, searching for "Tablet PC" and changing the "Orientation" drop box to the desired rotation. b> Windows 7 Monitor Orientation b> Click the Start menu at the lower-left hand part of the screen, and open the Control Panel. Select "Display," then click "Change display settings" from the left column. When using multiple monitors, select the monitor that you would like to rotate. Click the drop box next to the "Orientation:" option. Select the desired rotation and click "Apply." Click "Keep Changes" or "Revert," depending on preference. Click "Apply" in the Display Settings window. Click "OK" to finish. Hope this helps

My lenovo think pad x60's screen has turned sideways. I think I pushed several buttons at the same time by accident. Help!


Typically the hotkeys to rotate the screen are Ctrl+Alt+Direction Key. Ctrl+Alt+Up Arrow should restore your screen to the correct orientation.

How do I fix my screen back to normal? My child did something now the entire screen when turned on is sideways. Help....I can't tilt my head and work on the computer at the same time.


Hi There.

Sounds like a up coming little computer guru ! I am going to base my answer on the Intel graphics driver because (there are many) and non was specified. You may feel free to ask for further clarification and I will do my best to answer.

The Intel drivers have a feature allowing rotation. Typically, it's really easy to bump the button to change this. I have not figured out the keycombination yet though.

Right Click on your desktop: You should see a menu of choices. Look specifically for:

1) Graphics Options
2) This will have a little > that points t "Rotation"

When you see rotation; you will need to move it "90 deg" either to the right or left; to set the screen back to normal.

Hope this helps. If it does; please leave positive feedback , I appriciate it.

My computer screen is turned sideways. How do i get it back to normal?


Some video cards support screen rotation. You may have accomplished this by pressing CTRL + ALT + Left Arrow. To change it back simply press CTRL + ALT + Up Arrow. If this does not work then try restarting. If that does not work you may have to change your view from Landscape to Portrait in you video card software program. If it is an Nvidia card then open display properties>>Settings>>nvrotate.

DISPLAYS ARE SIDEWAYS STRETCHED


This problem is because, when you formatted your PC, you have installed improper display driver of your PC model. This is also because of less capacity display/graphics card.

How to change a desktop screen from being sideways to normal ?


right click on an empty area of the desktop away from icons. Scroll down until you see ATI control panel or Nvidia control panel. Open the control panel and in the left pane you will see "Screen Orientation", change the orientation to "Landscape" or "0" degrees, whichever is displays.

If you do not have the video control panel option, then scroll down and click properties. Navigate to Dosplay settings and then to advanced settings. Look for "Screen Orrientation" and choose "Landscape".
