WELL my computer has decided to turn on its side :giggle:

The screen now faces to the right so you have to turn it on its side to use it! :giggle:

So whats gone wrong - im thinking its something SIMPLE , yet something simple that i aint able to understand:whistling:

Any help would be AMAZING:thumbsup:

Try this:
In a blank area on your desktop screen, right click and select Properties. Then select Desktop. You will see a tab for Default. Click on that to restore the desktop to its default, which is right side up.

An elaborate array of mirrors would be far more interesting...

Are you sure you haven't fallen over and are viewing the screen from a strange angle;-)
But Beerman's tip should sort you out

I'd love to know how to do this actually lol.

Do you have an HP monitor?

Some display drivers have the option to rotate the image so you can rotate your screen to a portrait position etc.

You should be able to change it by pressing ctrl + Alt and one of the arrow keys

I think you must have pressed ctrl alt and right arrow by accident to rotate it. I flipped my screen upside down accidentally before by pressing alt ctrl and the up arrow. Now I do it all the time at work to confuse colleagues

Not all monitors support it though...

could it be the simple fact you have had one too many?

isnt it ctrl + alt + a direction key or ctrl + shift + direction to do it and get it back

Took me about 10 mins re-positioning it though - it went EVERYWAY bar the correct position :giggle:
