Re: HP 1730 Monitor
It depends on your graphics card driver. If you are using windows xp, go to "control panel", "Display", select the "settings" tab, and click "advanced".
You should get a properties page, one of the tabs should be "Rotation" - change to what you want, then apply changes.
If you are unsure why the screen changed in the first place, check on the "rotation" page for a description of the hotkeys - most likely there is a hotkey set to rotate your desktop which has been inadvertently pressed.
If not windows XP, then the procedure is most likely similar.
Hope this helps, please ask again if you need more info :)

what i know is that monitors don't need drivers. if your monitor is new then i believe it is already windows 7 ready. what you need to do is check the VGA cable if it is damaged. try replacing a new one. Hope this helps.
Does it do the same when it is hooked up to desk top PC?<br />

If you go to the HP support website (hp.com/support) you can download the application for your monitor that automatically switches the resolution and orientation upon swiveling the monitor form horizontal to vertical or vice versa.
If your video card has installed software go into the application and find the display property you should be able to change it through there. If not find the display button on your monitor and try that feature.
Go to your toolbars bottom R/H corner and look for the VGA settings icon ( nVidia or ATI). Right click on that...and look for rotation settings, from there just followed the settings... Have nice day!
The Ctrl-alt direction key sequence is supposed to be used for changing your workspace. On my computer at work it changes the screen orientation
Ctrl-Alt-Up - right side up Ctrl-Alt-Right - 90 degrees Ctrl-Alt-Down - 180 degrees Ctrl-Alt-Left - 270 degrees
(If that doesn’t work, try Ctrl-Shift-R)
Horizontal and Vertical controls have little to nothing to do with the software drivers on the machine your monitor is connected to. Those are functions that take whatever output they receive and change the way that it displays that content.
My initial thought is to allow the auto-adjust feature arrange the picture for you, and then attempt to change horizontal and vertical values. If they still do not function, then I would suggest returning the unit to the distributor you purchased it from as defective and request a replacement.
Type ctrl-alt then use the up, down, left, and right arrow keys until it's where it's supposed to be.
If that doesn't work, right click on the desktop, select graphics properties. Then there should be a display settings, there you'll see where you can change the rotation of the display.
