Re: 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 :)

How do i change the screen from vertical display to horizontal

The IBM ThinkPad Z61t computer runs the Windows operating system. Normally, Windows is displayed on a monitor in a manner that makes it easy to read. If you want to change the screen display configuration (from vertical to horizontal), modify the screen display properties in Windows itself. This process causes the computer to rotate the image displayed on the screen by 90, 180 or 270 degrees, depending on the setting you choose.

1.Right-click on an empty portion of the Windows desktop on the Z61t.

2.Click "Properties."

3.Click "Display."

4.Click "Change display settings."

5.Click the "Orientation" drop-down window. Select the "Landscape" option to make the screen display items in a horizontal manner.

What does it mean when your screen says error while initializing the NIC? Computer will open to desktop page. Only get black screen with blinking cursor.

Ouch, it sounds like your laptop cannot recognize your operating system. When a computer boots up it looks for an operating system (such as windows) on differnet devices. For example: 1. hard drive, 2. dvd drive, 3. network card. You may have a dead latptop and need to reinstall the operating system.

Im havin a problem wit my acer comin on it askin

similar story trying to fix friend's 5420. She had trashed Vista and lost any&all original discs. Well, who needs vista's not one of M$'s better efforts. TRY THIS, download LinuxMint from a reliable source, burn a "live CD". put into drive, boot machine, during boot press "Alt"+"F12", select CD to boot from. See how it feels. Wait couple minutes for boot to finish then manually click on tiny icon next to network icon to load wireless driver, (don't ask...), on bottom right of screen. Learn some new stuff, toss some windows. enjoy.

Hp vertical monitor help plz....

after looking over the spacifics of the model you posted, I'm not certain that you are correct in assuming this monitor is meant to be viewed virtically. The issue is the monitor's resolution. Typicaly, your monitor's resolution dictates it's orientation. for your model:
Recommended resolution (H x V) 1680 x 1050 @ 60 Hz
that means your monitor is not meant to be virtical. However...
If you indeed wish to tilt your monitor on it's side, depending on your graphics card, you may be able to use proprietary software to " rotate " the display.

(nVidia has settings such as these for some of thier graphics cards. )

Vertical scrolling not working

you can activate this by
1. going to the control panel on your vista machine, make sure you are in classic view
(2) double click the mouse icon.
(3) From here you will select the "Device Settings" tab,
(4) make sure your Synaptic Pointing device is highlighted and then click the settings button located directly below the "port" column, this will bring up properties for this device.
(5) With all categories in the left hand column collapsed, select "Virtual Scrolling" here is where you will find the box that needs to be checked to enable vertical and/or horizontal scrolling.
(6) make sure the "Enable Vertical Scrolling" box is checked.
(7) don't forget to hit apply!
