Are you asking a question in the last response or stating what worked ?

If you haven't solved the problem...

You have told us nothing about your computer.
Your display for Windows has been rotated 180 degrees by software, or if you have a laptop or netbook, or possibly a brand name desktop computer, possibly by pressing a key or a key combo.
You need to change that setting, or press another key or key combo.

mostafaz4's instruction does not work for my generic desktop computer, but it might work if you have the same brand of brand name computer as he or she has.

E.g.

If you have a desktop computer and ATI graphics.....

RIGHT click on a blank part of the main desktop screen, select Properties, Settings tab, Advanced button, Catalyst tab.
Start Catalyst Control Center.
Displays manager -
Rotation
change it to Standard landscape (0 degrees)
Click on OK at the bottom of that wndow.
Answer Yes to the question.
..........

If that doesn't help....

Tell us the make and model of your brand name system, or if you have a generic desktop system, the make and model of the mboard.

The specific model of a brand name system is often shown on a label on the outside of the case somewhere, or it can often be determined by going to the brand name's web site and loading a program they have available, if Windows is still working, on the subject computer.

If it's a Dell computer...
Go here for how to find the Service tag "number":
http://support.dell.com/support/top...

Tell us what it is.

If it's a HP or Compaq computer.....
Go here:
http://partsurfer.hp.com/search.aspx
Scroll down a bit.
Look for the similar label on the outside of your computer.
Quote the specific model number - that's at the end of the first line.
Quote the Product number - that's on the third line.

If it's a Lenovo computer
Find your specific Product number and tell us what it is:

If it's an Acer laptop or netbook
Where is the model number located on my notebook or netbook?

Where is the serial number located on my notebook or netbook?

The model, sometimes the make, of a mboard in a generic desktop system is usually printed on the mboard's surface in obvious larger characters, often between the slots.
