How do I rotate the screen when I rotate the Acer B203w

The monitor physically rotates 90 degrees, but how do I get the screen to rotate as well? I checked the manual and the website; nothing there that provides any information.

For Windows XP -- within the control panel, click on Display Icon and the following screen will appear. I have 2 monitors (Laptop and HP L1925 monitor). On the display properties screen, near the top of the screen, click on the “Settings” tab. When the “Settings” screen displays, select the “Advanced” button near the bottom of the screen.



The “Plug and Play Monitor …” screen will appear as shown below. From this screen, click on the “INTEL(R) Graphics Media Accelerator Driver for Mobile” tab near the top of the screen. Note: Tab stretches the full width of the screen.


The "Plug and Play Monitor ..." screen will change to show Intel Graphis Media Screen. From this screen click on the “Graphics Properties” button near the center of the screen.


The screen will change to show the graphics properties. Note, the screen actually comes up with “DISPLAY SETTING” selection (in dark Blue on the Left hand side of screen). To change Display settings click on the words “DISPLAY SETTINGS” (left side of screen) and the screen will switch to show Rotation options. On the top of the screen, select the “Monitor” you wish to change by clicking on “Monitor” button. Next make sure the “Enable Rotation” box is check on the right side of screen and then click on “90”. Your monitor should rotate at this point to portrait. A message will appear letting you confirm if you wish to keep this new setting. Specify yes to keep the new setting.


This should do the trick.

Are you changing the rotation using the ctrl+alt+right arrow. left arrow or down arrow? That is how i change the rotation on the screen. If needed lower the resolution in the display settings in control panel.

Rotate screen


There are many ways.

With Intel HD Graphics Control Panel:
Rotate to 0 Degree: <Ctrl><Alt>Up arrow
Rotate to 90 Degree: <Ctrl><Alt>Left arrow
Rotate to 180 Degree: <Ctrl><Alt>Down arrow
Rotate to 270 Degree: <Ctrl><Alt>Right arrow

You can enter this Hot Keys panel by pressing:
<Ctrl><Alt>F6

Or right click on the desktop you will find:
Graphic Option. Click on it and in the expanded balloon,
Click "Rotation"

On monitor menu. This, I have no information. Couldn't find it on my Dell E2011H menu.

Hope this helps.

After dropping the mouse the screen turned 90 degrees counterclockwise


Probably not the monitor but a software issue. Depending on what OS/graphics driver you use you can rotate the screen. I would need to do is find the setting and rotate it back to normal. For instance if you are using XP and integrated intel graphics you can right click anywhere on the desktop area, left click on graphic options and rotate 90, 180, or 270 degrees. If you run NVIDIA you can right click on your desktop area and click on NIVIDIA control panel. From there find rotation settings and choose what you need to return your display to normal.

Some wide-screen monitors have a "rotate" option in the software that comes with the monitor -- you physically rotate the screen 90 degrees, and then Windows will rotate the entire "desktop" so that you now have an "extra-tall' screen, instead of an "extra-wide" screen.
