 I have a windows 10 (it is terrible) so the settings are quite different. I tried doing the directions but I realized these directions were for a windows 7.  My screen keeps flipping upside down and its driving me crazy. Also it is extremely hard for me to even just start my computer. Whenever I try to turn on the computer it turns black and then starts flickering a white screen. I am not sure if this is a virus or just a setting I can change. Please help!

In Windows 10> Right Click a blank space on the desktop

 

Select Display Settings

 

Find where it says "Lock Rotation of this Display"

 

Toggle that switch to "On"

 

Close Display Settings.
