Have a look in Control Panel,appearance and setting,or check with the software/drivers that support the graphics card.

Having marked this thread about Desktop Rotation as resolved it hardly makes sense to introduce a completely new topic here - much better to start a new thread

But as you're here

PS Presumably you managed to sort the desktop problem satisfactorily?

I assume from the tick that the desktop problem is solved?

It may be better to start a new thread with your new problem as people will ignore this one now it is ticked.

Have you tried clearing out your internet cache?
