Monitor screen went sideways

While installing the batteries in the bottom of my new logitech cordless keyboard, I must have touched several somethings because, I heard a funny noise on my computer and looked up, the screen was laying down on it's side. I now have my entire computer monitor laying on it's side so I can use
my computer. Can you help me? When I press the rotate button on purpose, nothing happens.

Re: monitor screen went sideways

Try the ALT key and the Up Arrow.
If that does not work, try CRT ALT UP and DOWN arrows till you can rotate your display.

Re: monitor screen went sideways

Hey there covenantmbb, the problem you are having is minor, so do not worry. Simply press CTRL + ALT + UP arrow. This should fix it. Alternately, if you want to return to a sideways screen, simply press CTRL + ALT + Left arrow. Good luck !

Can't get acer desktop to recognize logitech cordless mouse

Yes, you need to install the Logitech transmitter for your cordless mouse. The acer transmitter uses a different frequency. You could try pressing the connect button on both the existing transmitter and mouse but that's not likely to work with different manufacturers.

I got 2 logitech wireless mice in same desk, because I dont have anywhere else to place them, and they interference with each other...How can I change frequencies? Please help Thanks

This is in the logitech knowledge base.

Question: ''When I move my cordless mouse, it moves the cursor on the system next to me. What should I do?''

Answer: ''This is called ''Cross talk'' and is characterized by one cordless device controlling the cursor or keyboard input of another device connected to a different computer. To avoid possible interference, try to keep the distance between systems at least 10 feet. Also, moving the mouse closer or further away to the receiver can also improve transmission and performance. If the above fails, try pressing and holding the ''Connect'' button on the receiver for 10 seconds. This will reset the receiver's connection information and allow you to do a first time connection with the receiver and mouse or keyboard. After holding the Connect button for 10 seconds, then press the Connect/Channel button on the bottom of the mouse to synchronize it with the receiver. If you have a cordless keyboard instead of, or in addition to, a cordless mouse, press the ''Connect'' button of the receiver again, then press the ''Connect/Channel'' button on the Keyboard. Perform these same steps on any other Logitech cordless devices in the area that are experiencing cross talk. Another step that can be tried is to remove the batteries for 15 minutes. Then re-insert them and boot the computer up. It is important that during this time, you do not press the connect button on the receiver or keyboard of the other cordless desktop system.

I could not find anything on mouse crosstalk in the Microsoft knowledge base. Perhaps the problem is not so common for MS mice because of their more limited range.

Buying a new mouse was suggested. This may or may not work if you bought a new Logitech mouse, as it could wind up on the same troublesome frequency. Of course, if you replaced the Logitech mouse with a Microsoft mouse, their limited ranges might eleminate the problem, even if they used the same frequency.
