The picture on my monitor suddenly went sideways and I cannot get it to go back to the regular orientation. I tried to shut off the computer and turn it back on and also shut off the monitor and turn it back on and turn both off together but this did not work. I went into display in the control panel but there is nothing there to reverse the orientation. How do I fix this. My neck is getting sore!

It sounds like you accidentally press the key combination to rotate the screen. This is a feature on some video cards to allow portrait display with the right monitor. Your monitor does not rotate so the picture is sideways. To correct this problem simply click CTRL + ALT + Up Arrow and your screen should return to the correct orientation.
I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.
The camera has a built-in accelerometer, so that it automatically orients the image as soon as you take it. If you are holding the camera sideways, you'll have to turn it back to normal in order to see the image right side up.
