Upside down monitor

Friends monitor after being online in now showing everything upside down. A virus check revealed some trojans which have been cleared. The problem still exists and the system will not do a system restore. Using winXP, SP2.

Hi, a couple of simple things to try - first, press Ctrl/Alt/Up Arrow some display drivers have this feature. Second, change the screen Resolution - right-click on desktop>Properties>Settings this sometimes corrects that fault.
Otherwise, I am sure you will get more suggestions here.

You don`t say so let`s assume it`s not a laptop. Go into the Properties of the graphics card from Control Panel>Display and check out the settings there. (Remember the Advanced section too!)

There`s usually a 180 degree Rotation setting but without knowing which monitor you`re talking about.....
