Question about Computers & Internet
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.

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.
Windows 7 Monitor Orientation
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
