Try restore point.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

I saw this on a website - it might help:

"Right click on your desktop > Screen resolution > Orientation: Landscape (flipped)"

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Hold down ctrl and Alt and use the arrow keys to adjust your screens position. it will eventually go the right way up.

Aha, that's what I originally thought the poster meant.
On re-read I'm not sure what the poster meant by "dpwnkey".

Different computers have different ways of changing the screen position.
For an eMachine XP it was in the Graphics. I've found how to change for
Windows 7 HP.

Hi Derek, same, i wasnt too sure either, and then i realised he possibly meant downkey (o and p being so close on the keyboard) easy mistake to make.

Tried it on my pc and it worked i was able to adjust my screen position and orientation with that combination.

hopefully the OP comes back and lets us know :)

I'm probably being a bit thick again but I lost your drift here:
"The post are not showing up as being asnwered".
Do you mean on the lists of posts?

Hi, i experienced the same thing as cboy.

I would respond to a post then go back to the forum, the post i had just replied to would have the button "anser this" suggesting that no reply has been given. Even if i refreshed or closed the window and came back the response wouldnt show. Sometimes it does come up after a while, other times it just got lost :(

Sounds like a website issue but I can't say I've noticed it. Probably I don't check back until much later.
