Help needed with display.

My parents have just contacted me to say that they're having problems with their pc.

For some reason (god knows what they've done OR how !) their entire screen has been rotated 90 degrees clockwise and the Start Menu/taskr bar is now along the left hand side of the screen.

At the mo, they have to turn their heads to the side to read the screen (failing that, the monitor will have to tilted lol). Can anyone give me any advice on how they can change it back to normal ?

It maybe that the graphics card is a nvidia.

Try this; Right click a blank area on the desktop and pick properties. Now move over to the settings tab and pick advanced.Is there a nvidia tab there? If so click the tab to open it. Now look for a NVrotate setting. If it's there you can rotate the screen 90 or 180 degrees.

They may also be a Nvidia setting in the task bar. The rotation effect is also located there.

In one of my PCs, I can rotate the screen with:

"Alt Gr" and the Arrow keys or

"Ctrl+Alt" and the Arrow keys

Give it a try ;-)

My parents don't have a NVidia card but, over the phone, I've been able to get my mum to go into their card properties and find the "rotate" setting.

Thanks again.
