Re: screen displays vertical, but I need to rotate it...
If your screen image is rotated to the rotated to the right or left and you?re asking how to get it back to normal it depends on your system. For Windows while holding the Ctrl and Alt keys down press the up arrow button. If that doesn?t work then your video card driver probably has a component that controls this function. Let us know what your video card make and model is and what software driver for it you have installed and we?ll try to help figure it out.
If I?ve misunderstood your question please elaborate.

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.
If you have an Nvidia Graphics card then on the bottom right hand side of your task bar, next to the time, it's a green icon. A Nvidia logo is displayed. Left click on it and move your mouse over rotation settings, should be set to rotate 0 degrees.
Can also access through control panel, then Nvidia control panel, then on the left menu rotate display, set it to no rotation 0 degrees.
Please take the time to rate my expertise.
I think you are referring to the picture on the laptop screen has rotated away from landscape or upside down. If this is the case, right click on the desktop away from icons and scroll down to "Nvidia or ATI control Panel", when this window opens look to the left and you will see a refrence to "Screen Orientation", click the drop down menu and select "Landscape". If you do not have the "control Panel" option, go to the bottom and choose "Properties", then display settings, then advanced settings, look for screen orientation, and choose landscape.
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...
Dont forget to vote for this solution at the bottom!!!
If you are using windows XP, (vista should be similar) then click "start", "control panel", "display" then select the "settings" tab. select "advanced". Depending which graphics driver you are using you should see a link or a tab labelled "rotation" or "rotate display".
You can set hotkeys to perform the rotation if you want to simplify the process for the future.
Hope this helps - please ask again if you need more info :)
