Check all your option, if its a tablet style you might have a function key that allows you to change it. IF you have the drivers disk, try reloading the video drivers or checking for updates on Microsoft and the video card makers web site also. Its worth a shot and doesnt cost anything. Allthough if the laptop has a recovery cd, you could re-install windows all together and see if that works. Has it ever worked correctly or has it always done this from day one?

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.

My dog stepped on my hp mini and the screen is now sideways even after shutting it and restarting it.


It sounds like this should work for you. Press 'ctrl'+'atl'+the up arrow on your keyboard. You can use the same keys and change the arrow key pressed to rotate your screen any direction you need. This feature is usually used with LCD monitors so you can display a picture in portrait mode.

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

I have an e528 emachine and my screen is in landscape view instead of portrait view, how doi change it back? Now everything is sideways instead of up and down.

Hi and welcome to fixya!

To change the view of your screen, just simply press alt + ctrl + the arrow keys. It will "turn" your screen. Just stop when you finally have the view that you want.

This will certainly help.

Hp laptop screen gone sideways & mouse not working

Right click on an empty spot on the desktop, scroll down to the graphics control panel, this may be Ati or Nvidia. Open the control panel amd look to the choices on the left. There will be a choice to either "Rotate Display" or something about "Screen Orientation", change the rotation to "0" degrees or whatever puts it upright.

Display is Sideway's.

You might be able to find what you are looking for in the display properties.  Right click on your desktop and select your video card.  There you should find screen setup.

Toshiba laptop screen is east west instead of north south

If you click on the menu bar, you should be able to drag it down to the bottom. If you right click it is should also give you the option to lock it to keep it from moving again.
