Question about Dell Inspiron 710m Notebook

1 Answer

Screen image is upsidedown

I have a Dell laptop and my son did something and now the whole screen image is upside down and reverse. Even the mouse works upsidedown.
How do I get it back right. For example the START button is in the upper right hand corner and the X to close a window would be in the bottom left hand corner.

    I will try that when I get home. If it works you are my hero. My son is only 14 months and can reach just a few keys, so I figured it was a keystroke thing. THANKS~~~

    It should work.

    I had someone in one of my offices do that to every one's machine as an April Fools joke.

The display has turned sideways so i have to tilt my head to view the screen, any help in returning it>?

hehe, this used to be something naughty male techs did to female techs in the course to show superiority.

It is possible to rotate the whole desktop even upside down Right clicking on desktop ( box appears) select Graphics Options and Rotate to the degree that puts it all back the right way. Enjoy!

We need to know how to fix the computer because the screen is upsidedown.

I think you will find that the rotation has been altered. Its a case of trying to get the mouse to goto the graphics icon in the task bar(Lower right, to the left of the clock) and altering it back. This will involve some trial and error with mouse movements as everything is reversed.

Good luck!
