What type of computer? which model? and which screen? is it a laptop or a tablet.
Check your screen settings if its a seperate screen there may be a button on the bezel for changing the layout.
Also the orientation can be changed in most video drivers. set the screen on its side so you can see and right click on your desktop and manuver to "properties" goto the last tab then click advanced. search around in there for orientation, sorry but exact step by step varies from there depending on which driver you are using.

if you try something in that menu that doesnt work, just cancel out or hit escape.

When watching movies on my computer, I am getting a weird line through the middle of the screen at times, also, when things are moving on screen faster, more lines seem to show. I guess they don't really...

i think your vertical IC ( if vertical lines are shown) / horizontal IC ( if horizontal lines are shown) of your monitor has damaged. you may contact a mechanic and change the corresponding IC

My 15 year old Toshiba Televisiononly shows a narrow horizontal band in the middle of the screen. Sound OK.

Hiii fairley,

You aren't specsificly dercribe yor tv set.
For common TV horizontal problem ;i.e : White line accross the horizontal screen, horizontal band,'s can solved by replacing the IC Vertical/Transistor, and olso to replace the cap nearest the IC.

For common TV Vertical Problem :i.e : White line at the center of the screen (top to bottom),Vertical band,etc...It's can cure by Replacing the Horizontal IC/Transistor,and offcurse the cap's.

Tha's what all I know....

Hope can help you to solved the problem.

Horizontal Light Only

If you have a straight horizontal line in the middle of the screen the vertical deflection has gone out. Itll need to be repaired, the vertical deflection IC is bad. Hope this helps.

Photos randomly show in vertical and horizontal position

Th full defect in detail would help. But dropping any digital camera can lead to numerous problems which will call for repair.
The problem here is not defined enough for me to see what your real problem is.
Some suggestions:
Reset all your settings from the menu.
Use a card reader instead of using the camera to get your pictures on to your computer.
