First of all, did you install a desktop theme from an internet site? What did you do, for your theme to turn sideways...and have you thought of doing a system restore, to a date prior to your theme turning sideways>
Are you running windows XP?

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.

My screen turned sideways

go to Control panel, and find Graphics / Video icon e.g. Intel, Nvidia etc.. There is an option to rotate 90 degrees clockwise or counterclockwise. Select that setting until your screen is turned in a normal way..

My computer screen went sideways and now i have 2 turn my computer sidewayys too how do i fix it

Most likely the change was on the display setting. You need to get to diplay settings and rotate the screen another 90 degrees.
