Ctrl,Alt and the arrow up, down key should fix it. Check your pc because some use a different key code. If no right click on desktop, go to properties, display settings and adjust the screen.

I BOUGHT A USED COMPAQ FLAT-SCREEN MONITOR ON EBAY TO USE WITH MY DELL PC, BUT IT ONLY HAS A VERY SHORT UNUSUAL CORD THAT IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH MY COMPUTER & DOESN'T LOOK LIKE ANY KIND OF POWER CORD...


Compaq has a habit of using what I refer to as a "mickey mouse" power cord, (because if you look at the connector upside-down, it resembles mickey mouse).
These cords ARE available in longer lengths at computer stores, but it might be cheaper and easier to simply buy an extension cord to plug it into.

Now, you say not compatible with your computer...are you saying that the computer connector AND the power cord are BOTH an issue, or were you just saying that this power cord would never fit your computer like most other monitor power cords would?

Windows XP screen is flipped upside down...virus?!


Virus is possible but check the software for your video driver first. This has keyboard sequences that allow the screen to be rotated. Minimize any windows you have open till you have the desktop on the screen. Then on a blank area of the desktop in the middle of the screen right click mouse. If you see an option for screen properties or rotate screen or screen options choose it. In there you should see an option for rotating the screen

Hello, I bought a monitor for my laptop,model 2232BW, and I cannot get it to function properly. My wallpaper comes up on the monitor and also my mouse but all my desktop items remain on my laptop...


You have the graphics driver set to Extended Desktop.
If you move the cursor to the right, can you see it on the new monitor?
If so you can drag any application window over to the new monitor.
If you don't like this then right-click on the desktop wallpaper and choose Properties, then find an Advanced tab and an Extended Desktop checkbox and uncheck it.

There do you have a tab for your graphics card? Mine shows I have a 6600Gt. After selecting the tab it displays options. I have NVrotate. That rotates my screen.

Where?


Hey dluvssue,

For most versions of Windows, you should be able to find your Internet Explorer settings by clicking on the "Tools" menu on the top of any internet window pane and choosing "Internet Options" from the drop-down menu that appears. Scrolling however, is generally treated as a function of your computer's mouse and not the internet browser. To find and update your mouse settings, you'll probably want to use the path provided below:

Start > Settings > Control Panel > Mouse

Once in this menu, you should be able to select the sensitivity and scroll settings for your mouse.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

Flipped\upside down screen on my compaq

Windows XP: Flipping the screen upside down and back again


Once, at University, someone had flipped the screens of all the public computers (running on Windows XP) of the English Department upside down. The wallpaper, desktop icons, fonts, mouse-cursor and even the start-up screen...everything was displayed or moved upside down. People could not check out their e-mails or surf or do anything.
To reverse the upside down screen mode, press ctrl, alt and the up arrow (arrows console) at the same time; the screen will probably go blank. Turn off the monitor, turn it on again and the display will be normal again. If you possess a sense of humour or are antisocial, press ctrl, alt and the down arrow simultaneously, turn off the monitor, turn it on again and everyone (excluding the culprit) will be desperate --> upside down! Works for Windows XP Home and Prof.
