My Samsung n120 screen is displaying only vertically - how do I go back to horiz display?


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.

The screen on my acer laptop has turned upside down.. How can i turn the screen around?


I know how inconvenient working on your laptop the image in it is upside down. But don't worry I will help you with this concern.

I have a video tutorial that will walk you through on how to correct it or fix it.

Just click the link VideoTutorial so that you will directed on the video tutorial page. Once you get there, please wait to load the video completely, it takes quite while.
But if you want a written walk through, not a problem I will provide that.

Laptops are very customizable. There is a very handy technique that has been a feature on laptops for many years but is still not widely known. It comes in handy for a lot of reasons. For anyone who wants to relax and watch a movie on their laptop or read an ebook, the ability to rotate their laptop's screen from vertical to horizontal makes these activities so much easier. This explanation applies to Windows Vista and Windows 7.

1. Hold down the "Ctrl" and "Alt" keys and press the "Left Arrow" key. This will rotate your laptop screen view. Return to the standard screen orientation by holding down the "Ctrl" and "Alt" keys together and pressing the "Up Arrow" key. If you were unable to rotate your screen with "Ctrl + Alt + Left," go to step 2.

2. Right-click on the laptop's desktop and select "Personalize."

3. Find the "See Also" menu on the left side of the screen and click "Display."

4. Click on "Change Display Settings" and choose "Orientation" from the drop-down menu.

5. Choose from "Landscape," "Portrait," "Landscape (Flipped)," and "Portrait (Flipped)" from the box that appears. "Landscape" is the standard view. "Portrait" changes the view to sideways, leaning to the left. "Landscape (Flipped)" shows a sideways view leaning to the right. "Portrait (Flipped)" turns the screen upside down.

6.Click "Apply" and then click "OK." Your screen orientation is set to whatever version you like.

Proceed to play jokes on your friends by flipping their computer screens when they are not looking, then tell them "That's not good, dude."


I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya.

When connecting projector to my laptop, the picture comes up as right to left so impossible to read anything. I have tried to flip it landscape way but that flips it upside down and still reading right to...


If you push the button one more time to flip the screen it should read properly, otherwise bounce it off of a mirror and adjust the keystone if it is a permanent mount.

My laptop screen went from horizontal to vertical, everything is sideways


Check your display settings. In Vista (I suspect) and Win7, right click on a spot on the desktop with no icons or programs. Select Screen Resolution. There is a drop down menu item labeled Orientation. Change this to Landscape if it is in Portrait or vice versa. (The Screen Resolution can also be accessed through the Control Panel.)

If you have a different operating system, the names may be different but it should be fairly similar.

I hope this helps.

Thin horizontal line across the entire TV screen


Hi, your correct it is collapsed vertically, you should have re-soldered it before it failed because now you may have to replace the IC but I would re-solder it first as this possibly will fix it, look for a small aluminum (silver colored) heatsink with a black 7-10 pin IC screwed onto the heatsink, flip the main board over and this IC will probably have 2-3 (or more) pins broken, re-solder with 60-40 tin/lead solder, you didn`t give make & model number so thats all the info I can give you, good luck, BMW Rider

Only Horizontal line


If you can hit it, it is probabl;y just bad solder joints on the vertilcal output IC (yes thats right vertical, because it stretches,or in your case compresses the picture vertically). kind of hard to point you to it if you've never been in a tv but it will be a little chip standing up mounted onto a piece of metal (heat sinc). There will be a few though the IC will likely have 1 row of pins maybe 7-10. And probably have a part number on it that begins with "LA" like maybe LA7838. You can tap around the different heat syncs with a NON-METALIC with the TV on until you find the one that is sensitive that should help you identify the vertical IC. Any way unplu flip the PCB over and resolder that IC. That should take care of it.
