Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

1 Answer

Desk top screen

As I was using the computer with Vista, my screen suddenly rotated and has changed to portrait format instead of the normal landscape format and the cursor is not working well either. Any suggestions as to how do I go back to normal desktop format. Thanks.

Click start control panel display desktop you can select a different desktop from the drop down list
or a browse button where you can select different pictures this may vary depending on your operating system

also you can change the settings for more or less pixels or from the drop down list pick the appropriate level of color range or troubleshoot also select advanced then general dpi normal

size, larger size or custom settings
Always click APPLY after making any changes


windows 7

Open Personalization by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Personalization.


Click Window Color and Appearance.

Under Window Color and Appearance, click the color you want, and then click OK.


Note

If you see the Appearance Settings dialog box instead of the Window Color and Appearance


window, the theme might not be set to Windows Vista, the color scheme might not be set to Windows Aero, or the computer might not meet the minimum hardware requirements for running Windows Aero. For more information, see Troubleshoot problems with Windows Aero.


Hope this helps.

Hi..i have HP pavilion dv5 laptop with preloaded Windows Vista. i want to istall windows xp instead of vista. i tried installing it using xp bootable disc. but after loading the required installation files...


its very simple....
enter the bios setting...The BIOS settings menu is accessible by pressing the f2 or f10 or the f6 key on some computers.
if the BIOS provides an option to disable the native-SATA configuration in the BIOS, do the following steps to Disable the native-SATA in the BIOS

1. Use the cursor to navigate the Configuration options to locate the Native-SATA setting. 2. If there is a SATA setting, select the Disable option, and then press F10 to save the change and restart the computer.

if your system bios does not contain such option.... then find "Native SATA mode" or "SATA IDE"
then change "AHCI" to "ATA"
then press F10 to save the change and restart the computer.

My stuff is still sideways on my computer


Hi tbowhay, Go to your control panel, there we have a couple of options: Maybe you can find it back in Display, then to Orientation, maybe there is an option to put it back to Landscape. Or if you own an Nvida GPU there would be an option in your Control Panel, go there to your Nvidia Control Panel, choose the standard settings -> Display -> Rotate Display, and back to Landscape (without the flipping ;) ) ATi has an icon in your taskbar, where you can directly go back to the right settings, switch it back to Landscape. Good luck to you!
