I inadvertently hit the right little clicker when I was pressing CTRL and the screen display rotated 90 degrees. When I hit the left little clicker while pressing CTRL it rotated 180 degrees. I can't get it back to normal even if I reboot.

Actually you hit a combination of keys. Most likely you hit Ctrl+Alt and an arrow key. Try Ctrl+Alt+the up arrow. If that rotates the screen to upside down, repeat the combination twice more (or use Ctrl+Alt+the down arrow twice).
If that doesn't work, if you have a Windows OS, try the Screen Resolution or Graphics Display settings. Right click on the desktop anyplace with no running programs or icons, select Screen Resolution and then change the drop down for Orientation. This works on my desktops. For my laptop, it's the Graphic Display and then a similar orientation label.
Try pressing Ctrl + Alt + UP Arrow Key, or try Ctrl + Alt + and a different Arrow Key.
If that does not work: Right-click on empty Desktop > Graphics Options > Rotation. or Press "Ctrl-Alt" and an arrow key (left, right, up or down) to rotate the screen. Continue pressing the hotkeys and arrow keys until you reach the desired rotation. This works with most video drivers on Windows XP. If it doesn't, Click "Start," then "Control Panel," then "Display," then the "Settings" tab. Click the "Advanced" button. Check for an "Orientation" option. Select your desired orientation. hope this helps
Right click on the monitor display away from icons ans on the desktop. Scroll down to either properties or if it says ATI or Nvidia control panel. If it is under properties look for the txt "Orientation", click on "Landscape" or "0" degrees whichever it states. Click apply and OK. If you bring up the control panel for display settings, then look in the left hand pane for "screen Orientation" and again choose "Landscape" or "0" degrees....whichever one it states.
UPSIDE DOWN DISPLAY
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.
Not a key combo--it's a display properties setting. Look for an icon for your video card in the lower right corner Notification Area. Right click on it to adjust. If you don't have the icon, go to Display Properties, Settings, Advanced, Rotation.
Or try control-alt and one of the arrow keys at the same time.
1. If you right click on the desktop and look at graphics properties, or
something similar to that, then you should get a menu for your display
adapter control panel. Usually the screen rotation is right there.
Sometimes it's as easy as a CTRL + arrow key combination, but I'd
rather see you adjust it from a menu.
2. 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)
3. If you have the intel video chipset, I believe pressing CTRL+ALT+ one of the arrow keys should fix your problem.
I think it was ctrl+alt+right, but if that doesn't work, try the other three arrow keys.
However, if that doesn't work (especially if you do not have intel
video), then right click on your desktop, go to properties, and go to
the advanced tab. There you should find some setting that will allow
you to reverse the rotation.
