my screen is rotated itself 90 counter clockwise

I opened my computer today out of sleep mode and the screen has rotated itself 90 degrees.  I have tried multiple times shutting it down, robooting and nothing is seeming to work.  Have you ever experienced this problem?  The computer is fully functional but I have to tilt my head to the left to see what I am writing.  The mouse is rotated itself as well.  Please help ASAP!

 

Thank you in advance!

Hi:

 

I don't know what OS you are using but here's how you fix it in XP.

 

Do a google search for how to do it in W7 or Vista (Rotate screen in Windows 7) if the same method doesn't work for those OS's.

Re: my screen is rotated itself 90 counter clockwise

Hi,

The first thing I would try is holding down your ctrl and alt and hitting the up arrow key.

This should rotate the screen go back to normal.

If it doesnt, click on your start button and in the search bar type in 'intel'.

you may or may not see 'intel control center' come up.  If you do, click on it.

When it comes up click on 'intel hd graphics' on the right.  This will open another window.

Then on the right you should see the 'rotation' option.  click the drop down menu and choose 'rotate to normal'.

This should fix the screen.  then click 'apply' and 'ok'.

Then restart the notebook to make sure the settings were saved.

 

I hope this fixes your issue.

Did u check screen resolution. If u are on Win 7. Right click on desktop. Click on Screen Resolution.Then in Orientation drop down box Select 'Lanscape'.  Yesterday I tried flipped and everything got inverted!!

My screen rotated 180 for some reason and your answer 'holding down your ctrl and alt and hitting the up arrow key' worked for me. Thanks!

Ctrl-Alt-up arrow resolved it for me.  Thanks.
