On my PC at work I have just got a problem. I Spilled a little water onto the keyboard and while wiping the display has now turned through 90 degrees with the taskber running down the righthand side of the screen. All text is orientated to this. The pc is running Win XP Pro.
How do I sort this out?

Do you recall anything you may have pressed by accident.
The taskbar can be moved to its original position bu clicking on the blank area of the taskbar and dragging the mouse to the bottom of the screen, this should but the bar back.

regarding the rest of the display.. could you give more detail?

Is it an NVIDIA card? If so click on the NVIDIA Settings icon in the notification area, Rotation Settings, set to 0.

All fixed in control panel I found and icon marked Intel(r) extreme graphics which allowed me to rotate the screen back to normal and also the rotation option has now been disabled.
