Go to your control panel and then the Mfr display panel configuration settings - Find and click on "Restore Defaults " or just change the rotation back to upright if you like the other changes you previously made.
do a system restore.. it will not erase anything.. it only restores settings.. start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system restore... (if you are running windows 7 click next then check the box "show more restore points") choose a date before the problem.. if that doesn't work re-install the video drivers from the manufacturer website. good luck
Windows is probably getting stuck on start-up and this is likely due to a driver problem. The presence of a blue screen with the mouse pointer icon on it has a description called BSOD (Blue Screen Of Death). BSOD was common in earlier Windows versions as they were not robust enough to withstand misbehaving applications. Current Windows better isolate applications so that BSOD does not occur but it can still happen during the start up process. My suggestion is that you should try running Safe Mode then do a System Restore to an earlier date when the system used to start properly. Strongly suggest that you have the system plugged into its AC adapter before doing this. The following is based on Windows XP (you didn't indicate what O.S. you had). 1. do a power-on and press F8 repeatedly to get the Windows Advanced Options Menu 2. use the up-down arrow keys to highlight Safe Mode and press the Enter key 3. on the Windows log-in screen, click your user name icon to log-on 4. on the Desktop window, click the No button to indicate a choice to use System Restore 5. on the Taskbar, click on the iconized System Restore to open the System Restore window 6. click the Next button to get the Select a Restore Point window with the monthly calendar 7. on the calendar, click a bold date then click the Next button 8. on the Confirm Restore Point Selection window, read and if it is OK click the Next button 9. during System Restore, the system will be shut down and restarted. Let this proceed normally.
Welcome to Fixya Support I am Michelle, and i will be assisting you regarding the issue
if this is recent problem..try a system restore
Click start...all programs...accessories...system tools...system restore... in the window that appears, restore computer to earlier date and time and click next select a date may be a week or 2 back when system was running fine and click next follow the onscreen steps
the system restore should reverse any changes to the system that might have caused the issue to occour.
You may need to reload windows on the hard drive. However try this first: reboot the system. Tap F8 to get to the system menu. Go to Safe mode and see if windows will load from there. If it does- try System restore to a point before the looping issue started. If it still loops, tap F12 at the Dell screen, and select the image to restore the system (reload to factory default). If you do not have that option, you will need the install media that came with your Laptop to reinstall the operating system entirely. If you do not have the drivers disk for your system- you will need to go to Support.Dell.com, enter in the service tag of your system, and download the drivers for your system.
Good luck! Also, as a reminder: Use your burner or an external hard-drive to backup your college work. Nothing makes you hate life more than having to retype a 20page paper from your edited rough draft and outline due to a system crash or virus! (personal experience. History paper.)
