My screen turned sideways

go to Control panel, and find Graphics / Video icon e.g. Intel, Nvidia etc.. There is an option to rotate 90 degrees clockwise or counterclockwise. Select that setting until your screen is turned in a normal way..

My dog stepped on my hp mini and the screen is now sideways even after shutting it and restarting it.


It sounds like this should work for you. Press 'ctrl'+'atl'+the up arrow on your keyboard. You can use the same keys and change the arrow key pressed to rotate your screen any direction you need. This feature is usually used with LCD monitors so you can display a picture in portrait mode.

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

My problem is the screen the yahoo messenger goes sideways everything is sideways the icons too is on the rightside sideways even the start button ols help me fix this.thank you i still need to lift my...

You may try these steps. If you are facing a 90/180 degrees rotation issue with your displayed screen, this can be either due to a problem with your graphic card or a wrong manipulation of the hot keys of your keyboard. This problem can be easily fixed if you follow the steps below:
Solution 1
  • Step 1: With the Desktop screen displayed in front of you, use your mouse left-click to access the Graphic Properties? option
  • Step 2: Select the Rotation Tab
  • Step 3: Uncheck the box labeled Enable Rotation?
Solution 2
  • Step 1: With the Desktop screen displayed in front of you, use your mouses left-click to access the Properties? option
  • Step 2: Select the Parameters tab and click the “Advancedâ€? option
  • Step 3: From the displayed list, choose the name corresponding to your graphic card model
  • Step 4: Select the Rotateoption and change it to 0 degrees or to the “normalâ€? mode.
Solution 3
You can also make use of the hotkeys to change the rotation of your screen
Press CTRL+ALT Gr+Up/Down/Left/Right arrows
Solution 4
If none of the above solutions has solved your problem, this might be due to a bad configuration of your graphic card. I will strongly suggest you to contact a computer technician to fix this issue.

I hope this works for you. Good Luck!

My netbook display screen for the desktop is flipped sideways how do I fix it? I have rebooted it 3x

It sounds like you have the screen flipped (portrait for landscape). If you have XP, you will need to look at the display properties. I believe this is Start > Settings > Control Panel > Display > Settings. Then click on the Advanced tab. Look for a rotate screen option. (It may also be available from right clicking on the desktop - look for Display.)

If you upgraded to Win7, right click on the desktop, choose Screen Resolution and you'll find a line with a drop-down menu for Orientation.

I hope this helps.
