Paul, will your computer is on, close all applications, go to a blank area on your desktop (where there are no icons or shortcuts) and Right-click, a drop-down menu appears, go down to Properties, a window will open, across the top of the window go to the "Settings" tab, then at the botton right click on the 'Advanced' button.
Now, here is were it can differe from machine to machine - the tabs across the top normally will have an Adapter tab and maybe a specific tab to the video card in your computer. At first I would click on the Adapter tab and in here you may find a setting for rotating the monitor image for Portrait or Landscape, or there may be another button like 'Properties' that will take you further into the video adapter settings and in there you may find the rotate settings.

I ve just clicked a button and the screen turned upside down!! what should i do to get it back to normal view??

This actually happen alot, and its very tricky but simple to fix.
Here is a full list of keys that someone on another website sent me for
screen orientation problems, in case it's ever useful.

"Ctrl-Alt-Up - right side up

Ctrl-Alt-Right - 90 degrees

Ctrl-Alt-Down - 180 degrees

Ctrl-Alt-Left - 270 degrees

If these don't work you'll have to do it manually,
There is an icon at the bottom of the screen (now maybe the top) for your graphics properties. Right Click it

Select--->Graphics Options--->Rotation---> and make sure "normal" is checked
It will be weird with the screen inverted but give it a go.

Hope this helps

Removed radio and climate controls from 2004 Vovlo XC 90 and sent them in for repair to the radio. Now (before they are reinstalled) many things (like door locks, turn signals, moon roof, etc.) dont work...

Yes. These cars use microprocessors to monitor and regulate everything. by removing items it "can" screw with the programming. Reinstall and let me know if things fail to operate.

For some reason the picture is now too big for the screen. the heads on people are cut off and I can't read all the print at the bottom of the screen. Like Score to basket ball games.

You are most likely viewing the picture in zoom mode. To return to a normal view, look for a button on the remote that says "Wide" press this button until the normal viewing mode is selected.
