Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Our Dell Inspiron Screen 6400 has just started flipping over onto one side, so we pressed ctrl/alt/ and the down-arrow. But now the writing on the screen is slightly fuzzy or out of focus. Is it related? Is there anything to stop this? Thanks.

Check the image resolution.
An LCD has 1 native resolution, and this is the one setting it will truly be clear on.

If it's a 17" normally this is 1280x1024, buth check it's specs.

Set video mode to this, and see if it helps, if not, it could be the cable, or interference on the cable.

Try moving the video cable AWAY from power leads, if no luck, try a different monitor cable.

My dell screen is sideways


On Windows 7, it says graphics options instead of monitor settings.

Typically, to fix this type of error, you would use ctrl+alt+up arrow key to flip the screen right side up.
(incidentally...
ctrl+alt+right arrow = flip to the right
ctrl+alt+left arrow = flip to the left
ctrl+alt+down arrow = flip upside down)

If that doesn't work, or if your keyboard shortcuts have been disabled, right click on the desktop background, click on Graphics Options, then Rotation, then Rotate to Normal.

Also, if you have Intel Graphics installed on you computer, the software might have reset the default rotation setting. To fix this, right click on the desktop, then click on Graphics Properties. This should bring up the Intel Graphics window. Choose Advanced Mode, and click OK. Find the rotation settings (right side, 2nd from bottom), and choose Rotate to Normal.

My dell inspiron 6400 screen goes upside down


the screen orientation can be adjusted, there should be a button combination similiar to CTRL+ALT+Arrow key of which direction you want to flip it to. or then you have to look on the bottom right corner of the screen for display adapter settings, there should be a orientation setting there if not, then right click on your desktop and select properties, then settings, then advanced. there go over all the pages and look for the orientation setting. That last advise if for windows xp.
