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.

SOURCE: Windows XP screen is flipped upside down...virus?!

Virus is possible but check the software for your video driver first. This has keyboard sequences that allow the screen to be rotated. Minimize any windows you have open till you have the desktop on the screen. Then on a blank area of the desktop in the middle of the screen right click mouse. If you see an option for screen properties or rotate screen or screen options choose it. In there you should see an option for rotating the screen

Front cover removal


There are tabs that hold it in if I can remember correctly.

Look on the bottom of the case. It might help to flip it upside down.

Let me know if that works.

Best of luck!
