Yeah. Really weird. You all know the Graphic Rotation option available on Intel Video chipsets? Well, i was typing along, and suddenly my screen want blank. So i was like WTH? Then the screen came back to life..... Sideways. So, after straining my neck trying to maneuver the cursor to my desktop, i set my monitor straight, and went back to work, thinking it was a fluke, then it did it to me again. Then it dawned on me that whenever i press an arrow key, the screen flipped in said direction! Down for Upside down, Left for sideways left, right for sideways right, and up for normal. I need my arrow keys so that i can effectively type, since i use them as an alternative for backspace when i need to fix an error, and for scrolling through webpages and such. Is this a really stupid feature that i can turn off? [Banging head on Desk]

Yes. Yes it is. I have now completed the task of making myself feel like a total idiot. HOT KEY FUNCTIONALITY laughs at my stupidity.

well, I'm hoping someone sees this because I've got the same thing happening on my PC with windows XP. not sure what the hotkey stuff is but maybe I'll do a search on that to see if that fixes this. my daughter was on my machine (again, agh!!!) and all of a sudden everything went sideways....lordy, yet another PC issue.

thanks for any help.....
