Re: my screen has suddenly turned 90 degrees to the right...
You may want to look into your video card settings about that. Most intel video card has that feature. You should be able to press the CTRL button and the LEFT button to change it. If thats not it then look into the control panel.

Changing the screen orientation of your Windows display can make your screen rotate at a 90-degree, 180-degree and 270-degree angle. By default, Windows operating systems do not come with a built-in mechanism to change the screen's orientation. Certain graphics boards, such as Intel, utilize hot keys to change the screen orientation. If the hot keys do not work on your computer, a program can be installed to create shortcuts that change the screen's orientation. One such program that is Windows compatible is called "iRotate," which is available to download for free.
Turn your computer on and wait for it to load. Once your computer finishes loading, make sure any open programs are minimized or closed. Press and hold the "Ctrl" and "Alt" keys on your keyboard. Press the corresponding arrow key on your keyboard for the direction to which you want to orient your screen. Press and hold the "Ctrl," "Alt" and up directional arrow key to return the screen to its regular orientation. iRotate Application Open the iRotate download site (see Bottom of page.) in your web browser. Click on the blue download link on the left-hand side of the page. The download link contains the text "iRotate" and has an icon of a floppy disc. Save the file to your computer. Open the iRotate file and follow the on-screen prompts to install the program to your computer. You can choose whether or not to put a shortcut on your desktop, place a folder for the program in your "Start" menu or automatically run the program after it finishes installing itself. Right-click on the iRotate icon in your taskbar. The iRotate icon is a blue rectangle that will display information about your graphic properties when you hover your mouse over the icon. Select a screen orientation from the drop-down menu. You can choose a 90-degree, 180-degree or 270-degree rotation. The "Normal Landscape" option returns your screen to its default orientation. iRotate http://www.entechtaiwan.com/util/irotate.shtm
usb or ps2 keyboard ? might need to be enabled in BIOS
If you want to use a USB keyboard to access Windows command prompt options, make changes in the BIOS (Basic Input/Output System), or to operate legacy operating systems, you must enable support for the device inside the BIOS.
Shut down the computer and disconnect the USB keyboard. Connect a PS/2 keyboard to the PS/2 connector port on the rear of the computer. Turn on the computer and press the "Delete" key several times as soon as you see the initial boot or company logo screen. Wait for the main BIOS setup screen to appear. Press the right or left arrow keys to move the cursor to the "Advanced" or "Advanced Settings" menu option. Press the "Enter" key. Move the cursor to the "Integrated Peripherals" or "Peripheral Configuration" menu option. Press the "Enter" key. Press the down-arrow key to navigate to the "USB Controllers" option. Press the "+" or "-" key to change the menu option to "Enabled." Move the cursor to the "USB Legacy Support" or "USB Legacy Function" field. Press the "+" key repeatedly until the value option changes to "Enabled." Press the "F10" key to save changes to the BIOS settings and exit the setup utility. Wait until the computer begins to restart and then press the power button and hold it for approximately four or five seconds. The computer shuts down completely. Unplug the PS/2 keyboard from the computer and set it aside. Reconnect the USB keyboard restart the computer. As soon as you see the initial boot screen, tap the "Delete" key several times and wait for the BIOS setup screen to appear. If you are able to access the BIOS setup screen with the USB keyboard, USB support is active in the BIOS.
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. b> Windows 7 Monitor Orientation b> 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
1. If you right click on the desktop and look at graphics properties, or
something similar to that, then you should get a menu for your display
adapter control panel. Usually the screen rotation is right there.
Sometimes it's as easy as a CTRL + arrow key combination, but I'd
rather see you adjust it from a menu.
2. Ctrl-Alt-Up - right side up Ctrl-Alt-Right - 90 degrees Ctrl-Alt-Down - 180 degrees Ctrl-Alt-Left - 270 degrees (If that doesn’t work, try Ctrl-Shift-R)
3. If you have the intel video chipset, I believe pressing CTRL+ALT+ one of the arrow keys should fix your problem.
I think it was ctrl+alt+right, but if that doesn't work, try the other three arrow keys.
However, if that doesn't work (especially if you do not have intel
video), then right click on your desktop, go to properties, and go to
the advanced tab. There you should find some setting that will allow
you to reverse the rotation.
