    everything on my desktop is upside down . i cant understand anything . its confusing

  • upsidedown Feb 20, 2009

    If I took my monitor and turned it 180 degrees then everything would be fine. It is hard to move the mouse since everthing is like a mirror image. so right now I am typing it is going from right to left upside down.

There are two options:

Stand on your head, or..

Someone may have messed with the monitor settings.

Right click anywhere on your desktop, then choose "properties".

Then click "settings"

Then click "advanced"

If you're using any 3rd party video card (asus, nvidia, ati, etc), you will see an extra menu like this:

On the monitor thereshould be some buttons, like menu a let arrowa right arrow etc. Simply press menu and look for the screen rotation setting(many monitors are different and it might take some fiddling around to actually find it) and then set it to the setting you want. There is aslo a reset option, you can use that if you choose and this will restore it to the defaults..

The world is upside down, the king has lost his crown, don't laugh please, my monitor screen suddenly got upside down.


Rotating the screen image is a feature of the graphics card and is normally caused by accidentally pressing a combination of keys. To correct it, hold down Ctrl and Alt and press one of the four arrow keys (up, down, left or right) until you have it the correct way up.

As your screen is completely upside down, hold down Ctrl and Alt and press the Up arrow key.

Alternatively, you probably have a Rotation setting in the display properties of the graphics card. You should be able to reach your graphic card settings, but reading and setting them properly may be difficult since everything you see on the screen is upside down until it's fixed.

If all else fails, try restoring the system to an earlier date when the display was right. This will reset the driver to its proper orientation.

> how do I fix ?

Keep any "pranksters" away from your computer. :-)

The software for your video-card has an option to "rotate" the displayed image, either 90 or 180 or 270 degrees. Some "prankster" has set your video-card to the '180 degrees' setting. Change it back, or turn your monitor upside down. :-)

Upside down screen on monitor


hi,

turn your monitor upside down on your desk and look near the clock at the bottom in the system tray. you may have a shortcut there to that video setting, hover above the icons next to your clock, hopefully one of them is your video settings and study in there to change the setting back to the way it was. if not then right click the destop, go to properties, then go to settings in your display properties, then click advanced, and right in there should be a setting to flip the screen 180 degrees back to the way it was..

Display is completely upside down


Try connecting it to a different computer. If it's upside-down on another computer, then the panel is probably mounted upside-down. If it can be removed from the stand, remove it and see if it can be mounted the other way.

If it's correct on another computer, then your graphics settings are incorrect. Assuming you're running Windows, go to Display Properties, Settings tab, click Advanced button, look for a tab describing your video adapter (usually ATI or NVIDIA). In the video adapter's setup there is usually a Rotation option. The rotation option may be set to 180-degrees instead of Normal or 0-degrees.

Windows XP: Flipping the screen upside down and back again


Once, at University, someone had flipped the screens of all the public computers (running on Windows XP) of the English Department upside down. The wallpaper, desktop icons, fonts, mouse-cursor and even the start-up screen...everything was displayed or moved upside down. People could not check out their e-mails or surf or do anything.
To reverse the upside down screen mode, press ctrl, alt and the up arrow (arrows console) at the same time; the screen will probably go blank. Turn off the monitor, turn it on again and the display will be normal again. If you possess a sense of humour or are antisocial, press ctrl, alt and the down arrow simultaneously, turn off the monitor, turn it on again and everyone (excluding the culprit) will be desperate --> upside down! Works for Windows XP Home and Prof.

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. http://engtech.wordpress.com/2006/08/01/stupid-windows-features-monitor-display-turns-sideways-or-upside-down/
