Depends if your computer has this function. Not all laptops do. Read your documentation or go to the computer manufacturer's site and look it up there.

My screen is turned sideways


Go to control panel select display, change display settings, then go to the drop down by orientation and select landscape or portrait depending on whether you have your screen turned tall or wide. If tall select portrait, if wide then select landscape.

I touched a button on the keyboard that turned the page sideways.. it turned it to the left. how do I turn the page right side up?


Actually you hit a combination of keys. Most likely you hit Ctrl+Alt and an arrow key. Try Ctrl+Alt+the up arrow. If that rotates the screen to upside down, repeat the combination twice more (or use Ctrl+Alt+the down arrow twice).

If that doesn't work, if you have a Windows OS, try the Screen Resolution or Graphics Display settings. Right click on the desktop anyplace with no running programs or icons, select Screen Resolution and then change the drop down for Orientation. This works on my desktops. For my laptop, it's the Graphic Display and then a similar orientation label.

I hope this helps.

My acer screen is sideways. how do i fix it?


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.

Sideway screen INSPIRON mini how do I fix it


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

The screen is turned sideways


Hello,

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.
