Re: computer screen

I bet you mean it has rotated. I have seen this before. The computer I did this on, while holding down the "Ctrl" and "Alt" keys you press one of the arrow keys to rotate the screen. Depending on the arrow key, determines how much rotation you want.

This might not be the solution you want. You did not provide enough information about your display adapter. It is the display adapter software that does this. You will need to go to your display adapter software to key the correct key bindings. I am not talking about the "desktop display settings". If you have an nvidia graphics card then it will be the nvidia graphics adapter software that you installed. Not the driver, but the software that allows you to tweak your graphics adapter.

My advise, use that software to rotate your screen to the correct orientation, then disable those key bindings.

Hold Ctrl+Alt,then use the arrow key to select the top of the screen(in your case Ctrl+alt and up).My father in law who is actually trained for some PC repair called me with this stumper,I played with mine and stumbled on the solution by accident.

The screen is turned sideways


It sounds like you accidentally press the key combination to rotate the screen. This is a feature on some video cards to allow portrait display with the right monitor. Your monitor does not rotate so the picture is sideways. To correct this problem simply click CTRL + ALT + Up Arrow and your screen should return to the correct orientation.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Screen has rotated 180 degrees

I have lots of Dell monitors and none of them has the ability to flip the screen orientation built into them. What I suspect has happened is he accidentally hit a keystroke combination that activated a feature in your video card driver. If you have the built-in Intel Extreme Graphics read this link and let us know if it helps.
