screen has tilted 90 deg to left ... help

Dell Inspiron laptop / intel pentium pro...

Specs: Windows Vista
I do not know what happened ... I was watching something on hulu, got up to use the restroom real quick and when I returned the whole screen was tilted 90 degrees to the left (I thought I had accidentally clicked on something to cause a tilt but cannot find any sort of fix on the keyboard or settings to reset the view back to normal). I am not very proficient w/ computers so I called a computer repair place that I've used in the past. They said it sounds like a virus and to bring it in. Everything else seems functional on the pc ...... this is really irritating and has thrown off my sense of gravity....I just want to make sure this isn't something I can fix at home before being charged a $100+ service fee ..... any help/insight would be appreciated.

They sound pretty dishonest and are looking for ways to make a quick $
I would find someone else next time as they would have charged you a bench fee to bring it in. Lots of crooks out there like that.
I've been doing PC repairs for almost 10 yrs now. Let me know how you make out.
