Rotate screen back to normal


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.

Notebook screen is upside down


On your desktop right-click empty space and choose Graphics Options then Rotation then Built-in Display (if its there) then Rotate to Normal.

You can also try a shortcut with your keyboard Hold-down CTRL+ALT and then hit the UP arrow key to rotate the screen back to 0 Degrees.

My 2 years son push some buttons on me laptop and the screen is up side down now, how can I get it back to normal


First try pressing the following 3 keys at the same time:
CTRL - ALT - UP ARROW.

Hopefully, this will rotate the display back to normal orientation.

If that does not work, then try RIGHT CLICKING anywhere on your DESKTOP.
Then select GRAPHICS OPTIONS.
Then ROTATION.
Then NORMAL.

Hopefully one of those procedures solves the problem.

The key combination they probably pushed by accident to cause the event was likely CTRL - ALT - LEFT or RIGHT ARROW KEY, just in case you wanted to repeat the trick.

Good luck and take care.

HP (Altec Lansing) monitor is displaying sideways, my friend lent me her laptop


Some graphics cards have rotation "hot keys" enabled by default and this is probably the most common cause of this problem. The exact procedure for rectifying the display may depend on the particular brand and configuration of the graphics card in the problem computer. One of the following options may help resolve the issue.

Option One:
Try using the keyboard combination, "Control + Alt + Up Arrow Key". Control + Alt along with one of the arrow keys is a fairly common rotation hot-key configuration and may just do the trick.

Option Two:
If Option One doesn't work, see if there is a graphics card icon displayed in the Notification Area (near the Windows Clock). Clicking (or right-clicking) the icon may reveal a "Rotation Settings" option that will allow you to revert to "normal" display.

Option Three:
If neither of the previous options help, try the following procedure.
  1. Right-click an open area of the desktop and click "Properties" to open the "Display Properties" window.

  2. Click the "Settings" tab and then click the "Advanced" button to open the monitor settings window.

  3. Click the tab corresponding to your graphics card. You may need to click one or more buttons within the tab to reveal a rotation settings option. Exactly where rotation settings are located will depend on the brand of graphics card installed.

  4. Once you locate the rotation settings, choose the "0 degrees" or "normal" option to change the display to upright. The rotations settings may also give you the option of disabling rotation hot keys so that the problem does not happen again.

  5. Click "OK" to save changes and exit out of any open properties windows

Screen display is sideways


Hi all5r_mine,

Based on your situation. I suggest trying the following options:

Upside Down or Sideways Monitor Display

Problem Description:
The user accidentally pressed a keyboard combination that turned the entire monitor display upside down or sideways. The user cannot recall the keyboard combination that caused the problem and has no idea how to rectify the display.

Possible Solutions:
Some graphics cards have rotation "hot keys" enabled by default and this is probably the most common cause of this problem. The exact procedure for rectifying the display may depend on the particular brand and configuration of the graphics card in the problem computer. One of the following options may help resolve the issue.

Option Two:
If Option One doesn't work, see if there is a graphics card icon displayed in the Notification Area (near the Windows Clock). Clicking (or right-clicking) the icon may reveal a "Rotation Settings" option that will allow you to revert to "normal" display.

Option Three:

1. Right-click an open area of the desktop and click "Properties" to open the "Display Properties" window.

2. Click the "Settings" tab and then click the "Advanced" button to open the monitor settings window.

3. Click the tab corresponding to your graphics card. You may need to click one or more buttons within the tab to reveal a rotation settings option. Exactly where rotation settings are located will depend on the brand of graphics card installed.

4. Once you locate the rotation settings, choose the "0 degrees" or "normal" option to change the display to upright. The rotations settings may also give you the option of disabling rotation hot keys so that the problem does not happen again.

5. Click "OK" to save changes and exit out of any open properties windows.

Navigating through menus and choosing options when the display is abnormal is difficult but certainly not impossible.

Hope it helps.

Please rate this solution if found useful.

My acer aspire one netbook display was rotated 90% counter clockwise by accident. How can I restore the display to normal


Right click on the desktop away from the icons. Scroll down untill you see something like ati or Nvidia control panel. Select that and look in the left hand side for either screen orientation or screen rotation. Choose 0 degrees or landscape.

You can also get to these settings through the control panel > display settings > Screen Orientation > Landscape.
