seriously though why do you not just do a system restore to last known good working point?

what graphics card do you have?

im only familiar with ati cards.if you have an ati card click:

start/control panel/performance and maintenance/display/settings/advanced/rotation

this was available in older using latest ones and do not have that feature anymore though.

intel internal build graphic card. i try to go to the short cut as u stated, but can't get any 'rotation' . anyway, thanks 4 yr advice

Is there a portrait or landscape mode available when you right click on the desktop and select properties?

  ProfessorX 00:45 10 Jan 2004

no selection available either for portrait or landscape as i do what u suggested.Just thinking, if it can turned/rotated ,sure it will be some way to solve it out rather than to restore the system again (my last choice ...:(
