SOURCE: screen rotate

Hello snapshots,
Here is what you do:
1) Click on a blank area of the desktop (not sure why, but sometimes this is necessary). 2) Press the toolbox button on your monitor. It is located in between the rotate screen button and the secondary "Esc" button. A tablet shortcut menu should appear in the middle of your screen. 3) Select "Settings" at the bottom left of the menu. This will open a "Customize Tablet Shortcut Menu Settings" Window. 4) In the "Auto Screen Rotation" portion of the window, make sure the "Enable ActiveRotate" box is checked.  5) If you choose, you may also want to click the "Calibrate" button. This will step you through customizing the ActiveRotate to your personal preference. 6) Click "Apply" and then "Ok".
Please note, that with the internal wi-fi connection enabled, you cannot use the X61 in tablet mode in certain orientations. Nothing bad will happen if you attempt to do this; but you will notice a message popup telling you this, as well as having the screen automatically switch orientations on you. This is normal and has something to do with the wi-fi antenna location.
Hope that helps!
Jeff

Hey,

Give the CTRL + ALT + *An Arrow Key*, if not try, CTRL + *An Arrow Key*, or ALT + *An Arrow Key*.

Sorry, I just forgot which one xD.

Good Luck,

SOURCE: Asus Netbook - Keyboard locked on numbers

The number lock key has been pressed, press the NumLk key to turn off the number keys. There is a LED light that turns on when the NumLk key is press, just like the Caps lock key.

The upside down display is caused by unintentional pressing Ctrl-Alt plus the down arrow key.
Restore by pressing Ctrl-Alt plus the up arrow key.
ALSO
To change the display from portrait to landscape
Press Ctrl-Alt plus a left or right arrow key.

How can I get the screen to rotate over to the correct position?


You might have your Orientation Lock on. If you are using iOS 7 or 8, swipe up from the bottom and disable Orientation Lock (http://cdn.osxdaily.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/stop-screen-rotation-orientation-lock-ios-7.jpg)

Alternately, the switch on the side of your iPad might be set to Lock Rotation, so go to Settings > General and see if Use Side Switch To: is set to Lock Rotation. This would mean that whenever the switch above the volume controls is down, the orientation is locked.

Acer how to setup


You are looking for an option called Rotation or Rotation Lock (varies by Android version and tablet). Once you find it, orient the tablet so it is in landscape mode, then turn off rotation. If you do not have an option on the bar at the top of the tablet (top pull-down you get by sliding down a finger from the top of the screen), then go to Settings, Display, and look for Rotation, Rotation Lock, or Screen Rotation.

Why is my asus t100 lock screen upside down upon start up?


The operating system might be busy loading itself, and when you move it, that takes precedence over lower functions.

Have you waited for it to boot without moving it to see if it auto corrects?? If it does not, then you might have a problem with the sensor.

Screen display upside down


I think you should go to the settings and make sure rotate is not turned off. Also, try to calibrate your screen again.

My laptop screen is flipped upside down and i need to know how to reset my laptop!


No reset is necessary to fix this problem. Screen rotation is a typical feature on many laptops.
To rotate the display on the screen 180 degrees, simply press CTRL, ALT & down arrow on your laptop's keyboard.

You will have to do a factory reset, which will restore the default settings on your device.

1) With the device powered off, press and hold the Volume Up and Power buttons at the same time.
2) When you see the Samsung logo, release the Power button, but continue to hold Volume Up until the recovery screen appears.
3) Use the Volume buttons to navigate the menu and select wipe data / factory reset. Press Home to choose the selection.
4) Press Volume Up to continue.
