Inverted Laptop Display

  Desert Andy 14:49 18 Dec 2006

A friend at work was just typing away on his laptop at work, and the display inverted. He is not sure what keys he may have pressed. Any idea how i can get his display the right way up again.

It depends what computer it is. Usually its a combination of keys such as holding CTRL, SHIFT and pressing something else.
Your friend could look at his manual or if you could post the make and model of the PC someone would be able to provide either details of what keys to press or a link to the manufacturers website.

on mine it is hold down Alt gr which is the key to the right of the space bar and use arrow keys to rotate

Right click on an empty area of the desktop.
You should be offered options based on the make/model of your graphics card.

Within those options should be a 'rotate' option.

Can't find a box to rotate the screen in make and model of graphics card.

The laptop is a Toshiba

It may be an Fn function key job. Press Fn and look for a key with a display logo. This is often used when the laptop is used with a projector.

I've tried the Fn key, no joy so far

Try Ctrl + Alt + one of the arrow keys, usually the up or the right one.
