Upside down screen

To change your display orientation within Windows XP is to hold the Ctrl and Alt keys, then press the left, right, up, or down arrow key corresponding to the direction you want the screen aligned with.

The graphic software failed. no display

When you turn the computer on, do you see the HP logo?

If you don't, keep the computer on and try holding the computer screen under an overhead light at an angle. If you see a faint image of anything on your monitor, then the lights in your screen went bad. A new screen can range $100-$200 on eBay, and can be changed out easily with a small Phillips screw driver.

If you can see the HP logo, it's a driver problem. If this is the case, start the computer in Safe Mode by performing the following steps.

1. Make sure the computer is turned off.
2. Wait for the HP logo disappears and start pressing "F8" repeatedly.
3. A menu will appear. Select "Safe Mode" and let it boot up to the desktop.
4. Once at the desktop, hold down the "Windows Logo" key on the keyboard and press "r". A dialog will pop up.
5. Type "devmgmt.msc" without the quotation marks and click ok.
6. Click the "+" next to "Display adapters".
7. Right-click each entry under "Display adapters" and select "Uninstall" Click OK on the box to confirm. Don't worry, Windows will reinstall it after a reboot.
8. Once all entries are removed from "Display adapters", the category will disappear from Device Manager. Reboot the computer and start it normally.
9. Your screen will probably still be big and blurry. Log into Windows and adjust your resolution to fit your screen. If you select the wrong resolution, and your screen goes black or does not fit, DO NOT PRESS ANYTHING or you will be going back to step 1. The computer will revert back to the old setting after 15 seconds.
10. Once you figure out the right resolution setting, reboot one more time to make sure that the settings took effect, and you can use your computer once again. :)

I think that you have multiple displays enabled through your video card. Just disable multiple displays.

Flipped\upside down screen on my compaq

Windows XP: Flipping the screen upside down and back again


Once, at University, someone had flipped the screens of all the public computers (running on Windows XP) of the English Department upside down. The wallpaper, desktop icons, fonts, mouse-cursor and even the start-up screen...everything was displayed or moved upside down. People could not check out their e-mails or surf or do anything.
To reverse the upside down screen mode, press ctrl, alt and the up arrow (arrows console) at the same time; the screen will probably go blank. Turn off the monitor, turn it on again and the display will be normal again. If you possess a sense of humour or are antisocial, press ctrl, alt and the down arrow simultaneously, turn off the monitor, turn it on again and everyone (excluding the culprit) will be desperate --> upside down! Works for Windows XP Home and Prof.

Upside down characters

Silly question - are you holding it the right way up?
If you are, there may be a display setting for rotation.
