I couldnt figure out which section to put this as it is a PC issue..

Not sure if anyone has come accross this..

my parents have this little dell notebook thing (ugly) anyway.. apparently my cat went to sleep on it today.. could have been there for hours.. sleeping on the keyboard while the laptop was on..

anyway.. now the screen is upside down.. everything is on the screen upside down.. i have no idea how to get it back to normal!
had a bit of a look in the personalize settings or whatever its called.. couldnt find a way to put it back..

any ideas?

Try: CTRL + ALT + Up Arrow.

See if in the expandable bar near the time, if there is a icon for your graphic card, like ATI. Because sometimes you can change the rotation of the screen from there.

Hope it Helps,

ctrl-alt <^>v was really annoying on the computers at my old school's library, so I soon discovered the key combo to get rid of it (might have involved ctrl-alt-F12 to bring up a menu that could disable those hotkeys).

That was all fine and dandy until someone started locking them when the screen was turned 90˚ to the left.
