Qosmio Screen flipped upside down

I must have hit one or more keys by mistake and the screen display is now upside down.
What keys do I hit to get the display right side up again?

Thanks.

    Many thanks to DCSE for the quick reply. Unfortunately, Control+Alt and the arrow keys did not work. I searched through the Toshiba manual without any success. I telephoned Toshiba Support, Best Buy where I purchased the computer, The Geek Squad and finally a local Computer Service Shop that I had used for service and repairs. Difficult to get any advice over the telephone, but should I take the computer into the repair shop and pay them a fee, I should have the problem fixed in a few days. Instead, I RESTORED my computer and that solved my problem. Everything is back to normal. Many thanks to DCSE, Best Buy and ggeksquad.fixya.com

    Thanks burns-o for the information. I believe that will solve the problem, but unfortunately I cannot find the icon pic for NVIDIA GeForce Go 6600 anywhere on my screen. I also looked on two other computers for an icon of their graphics card. No luck. The RESTORE worked fine this time and corrected the flip, but how may I save the graphics icon to the Task Bar for future use?

Where you got to the Graphics card properties, look through the menus and look for "Show ICon on Taskbar" is not you can contact nivida on how to do it beacuse I am not that sure, it should do it on it's own after driver installation

Look at your upside down taskbar, look for the icon logo pic of the company who makes the graphics card. Right click it, choose rotation, and click %100.

    I dunno exactly how to, but if you go to the Graphics Cards Properties, look through the menu for "Show icon on taskbar" If you can't find, contact Nvidia and they'll tell you. usually right after a restart after driver installation, it should appear there.

An upside down image - this is caused by unintentional pressing Ctrl-Alt plus the down arrow key. Restore by pressing Ctrl-Alt plus the up arrow key. ALSO To change the display from portrait to landscape Press Ctrl-Alt plus a left or right arrow key. Some computers do not have this function.

My screen brightness its lees


Then brighten it. You brighten it by Holding Down either FN, CTRL or DEL key + Hit the corresponding key for brightening the display.
For example on my computer I press and hold the FN Function key while I hit the UP Arrow key to brighten the screen.

The brighten/darken keys normally have the icon of a circle with sprockets around it like the sun or it looks like a washer that goes between a screw.

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.

Screen upside down


Holding down CTRL and ALT while pressing the DOWN ARROW flips the screen upside down.
To undo it, and flip it back to normal, hold down CTRL and ALT and press the UP ARROW.


You can also try CTRL-SHIFT and then “r” … this works for some Dell configurations

This problem can also be solve in some PC using the below technique.
In Control Panel>Display>Settings tab>Advanced button, look for settings relating to display or screen position.

Newer video cards have the capability to flip the display 90 and 180 degrees for use with LCD screens that can be rotated.

If the problem still persist, Start you PC with F8 key press, select "Last known good configuration that works"

it will most probably solve the problem.
