Hold down the CTRL+ALT keys and hit the right arrow key (depending on how it's rotated, you may have to do this a couple of times)

My full desktop screen, welcome screen and any program i use is sideways on my laptop


RMB on the desktop, select "properties" from the drop down menu, then choose screen settings, you should then be able to rotate your desktop to the correct position.

Another way may be to press the CTL, ALT or Changecase key and the arrow up at the same time to re-position it, depending on your graphics driver.

My desktop on my lenovo 0769 is turned sideways


That sounds like your video card drivers are set to rotate your screen. If you right click on your desktop away from any icons in the menu you should see the graphics card properties for your NVIDA/INTEL/ATI card depending on what is installed. You will just need to go through those screens to configure the drivers until you see the section for rotating the screen. Just set it back to normal once you locate it and hit apply.

If you do not see anything from a video card manufacture you can try clicking on proprieties in that same menu. You will see a new window called Display Properties and your driver settings could be here. Check the Settings take and the Advanced button if you are having problems finding it. Feel free to link to a screen shot of what you are seeing in the menus if you can not find the rotation settings.

Screen is sideways


this is ok, either someone's yanking your chain, or you accidently activated an ability of your graphics chip, this mode is for "tablet" PCs which have a portrait mode. you most likely have an icon in the bottom left of your screen by the clock for graphics settings, one of these will be to rotate the screen.

it is also possible that this ability may be programmed to one of the hotkeys, however without model info I cannot tell.

your mouse should have flipped too, if not then someone may be fooling with you..

check if you can click your icons... if you cannot then right click on the desktop and change the wallpaper on your desktop, also re-enable your icons from this menu, you may also need to unhide your start bar


hope this helps

Monitor screen went sideways


Try the ALT key and the Up Arrow.
If that does not work, try CRT ALT UP and DOWN arrows till you can rotate your display.
