Hi gobrew
Nothing to worry about.This is a thing which windows should tell each and every casual game player as they keep doing it now and then .
Just press ctrl + alt+up arrow key and everything would be normal.You can play around with other arrow combinations too.

What would cause computer not to turn on when the power is loaded and the screen to stay black?


Im sorry about your situation.

Does the computer turn on??
If the computer turns on do you hear or can you see the fan working??

If the computer turns on does it stay on or does it shut down after a few minutes??

This will help us determine what is going on.

My computer seems to boot up fine but my monitor says no signal and my keyboard doesnt work


You can try tighten up the cable behind the monitor or disconnect the cables and reconnect. You can try another monitor to see whether the mother board and the cable works. Some settings in BIOS may be changed to use on-board video card (the one embeded on the mother board, which is connected on the ports out of the card slots) on your computer so make sure it is using the graphic card that is connected to the monitor. For keyboard, if may be mechanic issue on port or keys or cables if you will not see anything wrong about the keyboard. You can try to use another USB port if it is an USB keyboard or use a USB/PS2 converter if the PS2 keyboard port is not working. If it is a PS2 keyboard, you can check whether the pins are bent and reconnect it. Sometimes that helps. If it is a wireless keyboard, then you will need to fix the monitor and then maybe fix the driver and stuff. You can remove all objects beneath the keys by putting it upside down and shake it or use a blower.

If I type a certain etter it wont show on the screen


Have you tried a good keyboard to see if it is the keyboard or the computer. Quite often the keyboard will get food or debrees under a key. try turning it upside down and giving the keyboard a good shaking. If you have spilt soda or something that dries sticky on it , it may need to be cleaned internally or replaced.

Ihave a faulty letter on key board which is not the button .Ihave been told this can be fixed any help please


Keyboards get dirty & its easy for things (like stapes), to get caught underneath a key. You can buy another keyboard for $10-$15 but if you want to try something 1st, try holding the keyboard upside down & shaking it. You'll be surprised how much stuff falls out. While you've got it upside down, hit the q & s keys a couple of time to see if you can loosen whatever it is that's stuck. And if that doesn't help, you could remove the screws from the back and open up the keyboard and clean it that way. Keyboards simply press on a membrane which send the signal to the PC. If the membrane under the q & s keys is bad, then the keyboard is bad and you'll have to get another one.

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.

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.
