I don't think this is a problem with the monitor itself, it looks more like a setting within your display driver and I'm not sure what video card you are using! However you can try this 1.)Right click on your desktop and click properties 2.)Click on the Settings Tab 3.)Look for and click on the advanced Button 4.)go through all the tabs on this dialog and look for something that says "Rotation" there should be a setting for Normal or something. Set it to normal and press ok/Apply! Hope this helps! regards, babb

My screen is sideways

An upside down image - this is caused by unintentional pressing Ctrl-Alt plus the down arrow key. Restore by pressing Ctrl-Alt plus the up arrow key.
ALSO
To change the display from portrait to landscape (ie. 90 degrees).
Press Ctrl-Alt plus a left or right arrow key.
Some computers do not have this function.

My acer screen is sideways. how do i fix it?

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.

Sideway screen INSPIRON mini how do I fix it

Changing the screen orientation of your Windows display can make your screen rotate at a 90-degree, 180-degree and 270-degree angle. By default, Windows operating systems do not come with a built-in mechanism to change the screen's orientation. Certain graphics boards, such as Intel, utilize hot keys to change the screen orientation. If the hot keys do not work on your computer, a program can be installed to create shortcuts that change the screen's orientation. One such program that is Windows compatible is called "iRotate," which is available to download for free.

Turn your computer on and wait for it to load. Once your computer finishes loading, make sure any open programs are minimized or closed. Press and hold the "Ctrl" and "Alt" keys on your keyboard. Press the corresponding arrow key on your keyboard for the direction to which you want to orient your screen. Press and hold the "Ctrl," "Alt" and up directional arrow key to return the screen to its regular orientation. iRotate Application Open the iRotate download site (see Bottom of page.) in your web browser. Click on the blue download link on the left-hand side of the page. The download link contains the text "iRotate" and has an icon of a floppy disc. Save the file to your computer. Open the iRotate file and follow the on-screen prompts to install the program to your computer. You can choose whether or not to put a shortcut on your desktop, place a folder for the program in your "Start" menu or automatically run the program after it finishes installing itself. Right-click on the iRotate icon in your taskbar. The iRotate icon is a blue rectangle that will display information about your graphic properties when you hover your mouse over the icon. Select a screen orientation from the drop-down menu. You can choose a 90-degree, 180-degree or 270-degree rotation. The "Normal Landscape" option returns your screen to its default orientation. iRotate

Bottom of screen is projecting at an angle. Other 3 sides are at 90 degree angles

It is called as keystone distortion. To correct the problem press the "Keystone" button on the projector, then press left, right, down & up arrow buttons to adjust the angle at 90 degrees.

Screen has rotated 180 degrees

I have lots of Dell monitors and none of them has the ability to flip the screen orientation built into them. What I suspect has happened is he accidentally hit a keystroke combination that activated a feature in your video card driver. If you have the built-in Intel Extreme Graphics read this link and let us know if it helps. http://engtech.wordpress.com/2006/08/01/stupid-windows-features-monitor-display-turns-sideways-or-upside-down/
