Try hard to do this.
Right click an empty area on your desktop and select "properties"
Click the "settings" tab then the "advanced" button.
Look for a rotate option in one of the tabs.

Change screen orientation


Computer users occasionally have a need to rotate, or "flip," a monitor display to be better able to read long documents or to view pictures. Because rotating a computer screen is such a basic function, modern operating systems (Windows XP and up) include hot keys and display options that enable the user to rotate the computer screen by 90, 180 and 270 degrees. Rotating the computer screen allows for more display options. For instance, when rotated 90 degrees, a 1680x1050 monitor becomes a 1050x1680 monitor, which provides more vertical pixels than a standard display.

Windows XP/Vista Monitor Orientation
Minimize any windows or programs to the taskbar. Click the desktop. Press "CTRL" + "ALT" at the same time. Press one of the arrow keys to flip the monitor orientation by 90, 180 or 270 degrees. The left arrow rotates the computer screen 90 degrees; the down arrow rotates the computer screen 180 degrees; the right arrow rotates the computer screen 270 degrees; the up arrow resets the monitor orientation. Rotate the computer screen in Windows Vista by opening the Control Panel, searching for "Tablet PC" and changing the "Orientation" drop box to the desired rotation. b> Windows 7 Monitor Orientation b> Click the Start menu at the lower-left hand part of the screen, and open the Control Panel. Select "Display," then click "Change display settings" from the left column. When using multiple monitors, select the monitor that you would like to rotate. Click the drop box next to the "Orientation:" option. Select the desired rotation and click "Apply." Click "Keep Changes" or "Revert," depending on preference. Click "Apply" in the Display Settings window. Click "OK" to finish. Hope this helps

My screen is side ways how do i put it back to normal


Do you have a rotating monitor? There are a few that can be rotated 90 degrees in the plane of the screen for a "portrait view" instead of the standard landscape view, and they will automatically swap horizontal and vertical signals as needed. If you have one of these, the position detector switch is stuck in the wrong position. You may be able to get it unstuck by rotating to the other position and back again.

There are some programs (e. g., Acrobat Reader) that let you rotate the view of the file you have open, but that only affects the contents of the window, not everything on the screen. I'm not aware of a program that rotates the full screen view for the entire system.

How do I fix my screen back to normal? My child did something now the entire screen when turned on is sideways. Help....I can't tilt my head and work on the computer at the same time.


Hi There.

Sounds like a up coming little computer guru ! I am going to base my answer on the Intel graphics driver because (there are many) and non was specified. You may feel free to ask for further clarification and I will do my best to answer.

The Intel drivers have a feature allowing rotation. Typically, it's really easy to bump the button to change this. I have not figured out the keycombination yet though.

Right Click on your desktop: You should see a menu of choices. Look specifically for:

1) Graphics Options
2) This will have a little > that points t "Rotation"

When you see rotation; you will need to move it "90 deg" either to the right or left; to set the screen back to normal.

Hope this helps. If it does; please leave positive feedback , I appriciate it.

I use an lcd screen. I've just reinstalled my Windows xp. But the desktop screen doesn't display fully. Left side & right side has some space. I set my screen resolution at 1024 by 768 pixels &...


The monitor should have some buttons on it to enter the menu system for the monitor. as part of the settings there should be options for vertical/horizontal size and position. You will need to adjust these to bring your borders to the correct position.

Screen is horizontal how do i get it back to it's normal view?


Almost positive it's a hardware related feature.It's usually an option in the video card driver's settings.

You can change it by changing the driver settings for video card in the control panel. An option is usually there in the video card driver settings that allows you to rotate the display horizontally (90 degree or 270 degree) and vertically (180 degree).

Look trough the control panel carefully, find the Video Card Driver... change the rotation settings to 0 degrees and thats it !!!

Go ahead and give it a try... Its surely a prank played on you by your pal...



Do let me know if the problem still persists after this. Just leave a comment here...

The positioning of my desktop's imageis still distorted despite running the easy tune display wizard and my using the auto tune keys on the side of the monitor.


Use the manual methods on your monitor (horizontal and vertical size and position), not the auto tune and see if you can get it to improve.

Try using a different desktop picture as well.

Right click on the desktop where there are no icons, and change the picture. Also, play with Stretch/Center/Tile - stretch will distort a file if it doesn't exactly match your screen settings.
