Display Screen Seems To Be Reverse!

Windows XP?

Specs: Windows XP, Don't Know.
Hi, I'm need of help. I've been searching all through the internet, and I hope you guys are able to give me some pointers.

I've recently played a game with CTRL, ALT, and the arrow keys as functions. I thought that I should take a break, so I closed the program. I was stunned. My computer display was all upside down, and reversed. It was basically changed into a 90 degrees counterclockwise turn. I thought it was harmless, so I turned off my computer.

Today I opened it, and it was still like that. Do you think I might've triggered anything with a button I pressed? What can change my display screen back to normal? I would like some advice please. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

look for your graphics card control panel. It is usually shown on the taskbar down by the clock and open it up...look for the monitor settings and reconfigure the settings to what you like.

If you can't find it there then look for the installation in the control panel or in programs. It is installed and located in one of those areas or it couldn't have been changed.

if it's a GeForce Vid card, open your display settings (settings > advanced), click the Geforce XXXX tab, open 'additional properties', find NVrotate and click the button 'restore defaults' which is 'landscape (0 degree rotation)'.

Today's subliminal thought is: 'Calm down ... it's only ones and zeros.'

Beepinbop, Press the Ctrl and Alt keys together then either the up or down or right or left arrow key to rotate the screen.

Beepinbop, On many computers pressing the Ctrl and Alt keys together with the up or down arrow or the left or right keys will correct the problem. Try this in this sequence:
Ctrl & Alt & Up arrow keys
Ctrl & Alt & Down arrow keys
Ctrl & Alt & Right arrow keys
Ctrl & Alt & Left arrow keys

Hey, Lurk! I open my Intel Graphics Properties, and I found the rotation thing.

Thanks, a lot. It really helped.

Thanks to all of you, too.
