The Ctrl-alt direction key sequence is supposed to be used for changing your workspace. On my computer at work it changes the screen orientation Ctrl-Alt-Up - right side up
Ctrl-Alt-Right - 90 degrees
Ctrl-Alt-Down - 180 degrees
Ctrl-Alt-Left - 270 degrees
(If that doesn’t work, try Ctrl-Shift-R)

Push the button on the Monitor to activate the OSD (On Screen Display). With the OSD, one can "stretch" the picture (horizontally/vertically) and "move" the picture (horizontally/vertically) in order to "fill" the viewable area with your compueter's output.

Monitor screen is showing sideways....in other words, the vertical is horizontal and vice versa. How do I make it go back?


If your video card has installed software go into the application and find the display property you should be able to change it through there. If not find the display button on your monitor and try that feature.

Gateway LP2417 monitor won't work horizontally


I had the same problem on both of my LP2417 monitors. It turned out that there was a swivel software installed that was causing the problem. I found it in my taskbar and it didn't work when trying to swivel the monitor so I went into my control panel, add/remove programs, found the offending software and uninstalled it. After a reboot I was able to control my monitor swivel with my built-in Windows desktop preferences.

I'm sorry I don't recall the exact software name (its been a few months) but it shouldn't be too hard to find.

Monitor displaying everything horizontally


Some monitors don't give orientation feedback to the video card to auto change the orientation when you move from a horizontal screen to vertical. what you need to do is get to display properties and advanced settings (right click desktop > properties > settings > advanced > video card settings > orientation) - you should find an option to change the orientation of the display - correct it accordingly. if the settings are not being saved after you restart, you need a video driver update - find it on your manufacturers website.

Hi...there! Kazz,
Go to your toolbars bottom R/H corner and look for the VGA settings icon ( nVidia or ATI). Right click on that...and look for rotation settings, from there just followed the settings... Have nice day!

Horizontal display


Check with the manufacturer information that you have the refresh rates and maximum resolution set correctly. If in doubt, go to your display properties and try something basic to test if this is the problem. A basic setting may be as low as 1024x768 at 60 Hz.

(You can access your display settings by right-click the desktop anywhere and choose properties, then settings).

Leave the monitor at that setting for a while to see if the monitor changes the picture.

If the picture changes, it may be component failure in the monitor. If not, the problem is then related to the settings from your VGA card are too high or dense causing the monitor to fail after a time. Try something higher like 1280x1024 @ 60Hz and keep going till the picture fails. Compare the best functioning resolution with the manufacturer claims about the product in the product documentation.

Be sure there are no cable bunches and the power cables are not wrapped up with the VGA cable under the desk or there are not too many cables lying about, although unlikely, this has been known to distort the picture.

Let us know if this helps.

Cheers

Display on monitor has swapped from vertical to horizontal


Type ctrl-alt then use the up, down, left, and right arrow keys until it's where it's supposed to be. If that doesn't work, right click on the desktop, select graphics properties. Then there should be a display settings, there you'll see where you can change the rotation of the display.
