Go to control panel select display, change display settings, then go to the drop down by orientation and select landscape or portrait depending on whether you have your screen turned tall or wide. If tall select portrait, if wide then select landscape.

I have an e528 emachine and my screen is in landscape view instead of portrait view, how doi change it back? Now everything is sideways instead of up and down.

Hi and welcome to fixya!

To change the view of your screen, just simply press alt + ctrl + the arrow keys. It will "turn" your screen. Just stop when you finally have the view that you want.

This will certainly help.

The display turns sideways after start up routine has completed which affects the mouse control.

Please right-click on the desktop and click "Properties" or "Screen Resolution" and see if there is an option to change from "Portrait" to "Landscape."

My computer screen is turned sideways. How do i get it back to normal?

Some video cards support screen rotation. You may have accomplished this by pressing CTRL + ALT + Left Arrow. To change it back simply press CTRL + ALT + Up Arrow. If this does not work then try restarting. If that does not work you may have to change your view from Landscape to Portrait in you video card software program. If it is an Nvidia card then open display properties>>Settings>>nvrotate.
