If you can reach the desktop. Right click on the background and then choose Properties. Then choose the settings tab. Hopefully there is an option to change the orientation.

Hope this helps

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.

My computer screen is turned sideways. How do i get it back to normal?


Some video cards support screen rotation. You may have accomplished this by pressing CTRL + ALT + Left Arrow. To change it back simply press CTRL + ALT + Up Arrow. If this does not work then try restarting. If that does not work you may have to change your view from Landscape to Portrait in you video card software program. If it is an Nvidia card then open display properties>>Settings>>nvrotate.

Vertical/horizonal


There is no button on the monitor that sets this that I can find.
it is likely you changed the rotate settings for the video somehow.
If you have an ATI video card.
you should see an icon for ATI on the tool bar by the time and date .
right click on it and choose catalyst control center. in there you will find the rotate desktop.
if you don't see the icon then you can find it under start/programs/catalyst control center

The solder joints on the vertical output IC have cracked. This is a very common problem on those sets.
