right click on an empty bit of desktop and choose Properties

I'm guessing somewhere in there you'll find settings to rotate the display.

On my pc at home which has an Nvidia graphics card it's called NV rotate I think

Properties / Settings / Advanced

Try Ctrl-Alt-Right arrow or Ctrl-Alt-left arrow


Start > Control Panel > Display > Settings >Advanced
after that it depends on your graphics card. There may be a tab with your graphics card on it (eg GeForce Intel etc).

Does this occur from the firat BIOS screen of only in Windows. Of the former, I suspect you will need to tak ea look at your monitor menu and look there for a facitlty to rotate the screen. You will now be using the buttons on the fron tof the monitor and would not need to swtich on the computer because the <No signal> words would also be on its side.

Is this a laptop or a desktop?

If a laptop, the make and model would be useful. They often have different keyboard commands for this kind of thing, depending on the manufacturer
