Hello.


With ATI radeon you need to go to the ATI catalyst application to control the angle of the screen allowing it to go 180º or just 90º so you can read and see the screen sideways.

About the funtion keys or hot keys to automate this option they have to be configured in the program for a specific angle.

if you don't have the ATI catalyst control center i urge you to download it from the ati website.

The screen on my acer laptop has turned upside down.. How can i turn the screen around?


I know how inconvenient working on your laptop the image in it is upside down. But don't worry I will help you with this concern.

I have a video tutorial that will walk you through on how to correct it or fix it.

Just click the link VideoTutorial so that you will directed on the video tutorial page. Once you get there, please wait to load the video completely, it takes quite while.
But if you want a written walk through, not a problem I will provide that.

Laptops are very customizable. There is a very handy technique that has been a feature on laptops for many years but is still not widely known. It comes in handy for a lot of reasons. For anyone who wants to relax and watch a movie on their laptop or read an ebook, the ability to rotate their laptop's screen from vertical to horizontal makes these activities so much easier. This explanation applies to Windows Vista and Windows 7.

1. Hold down the "Ctrl" and "Alt" keys and press the "Left Arrow" key. This will rotate your laptop screen view. Return to the standard screen orientation by holding down the "Ctrl" and "Alt" keys together and pressing the "Up Arrow" key. If you were unable to rotate your screen with "Ctrl + Alt + Left," go to step 2.

2. Right-click on the laptop's desktop and select "Personalize."

3. Find the "See Also" menu on the left side of the screen and click "Display."

4. Click on "Change Display Settings" and choose "Orientation" from the drop-down menu.

5. Choose from "Landscape," "Portrait," "Landscape (Flipped)," and "Portrait (Flipped)" from the box that appears. "Landscape" is the standard view. "Portrait" changes the view to sideways, leaning to the left. "Landscape (Flipped)" shows a sideways view leaning to the right. "Portrait (Flipped)" turns the screen upside down.

6.Click "Apply" and then click "OK." Your screen orientation is set to whatever version you like.

Proceed to play jokes on your friends by flipping their computer screens when they are not looking, then tell them "That's not good, dude."


I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya.

The screen is suddenly vertical. Icons and all. Everything on the netbooks screen is not horizontal.


Hello,

Thank you for using fixya.

Some computers are designed to have that kind of functionality. It is made by Microsoft to give its users an ease of use because you can change the position of your screen depending on the position of your laptop.

Here's what you have to do to change it:

Press CTRL + ALT + any arrow key....

You can observe that the screen will change once you press a key.

I hope this helps.

Thank you for trusting fixya.com

Horizontal and vertical lines on ACER laptop


Hi there some how your laptop screen pressed & the screen is damaged. Just the option is replacing the screen. Another reason is over heating of screen by manufacturing default. Your laptop still under warranty so i suggest you visit the Acer service center & claim the damaged things if your screen does not have any over pressed symptom then. I hope you understand me. Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

Vertical view desktop


If you are using windows XP, (vista should be similar) then click "start", "control panel", "display" then select the "settings" tab. select "advanced". Depending which graphics driver you are using you should see a link or a tab labelled "rotation" or "rotate display". You can set hotkeys to perform the rotation if you want to simplify the process for the future. Hope this helps - please ask again if you need more info :)
