Hopefully this is the correct forum for such a question
I'm normally pretty adept at figuring out computer problems, but I have no clue about this one.
The short of it: My screen (desktop, programs, taskbar, etc) is now horizontal instead of vertical (ie: I have to turn my head sidewise to see everything correctly).
A program I was using stopped running, so my intention was to hit CTRL+ALT+DEL as usual. I think I accidentally hit another key unintentionally, and then my monitor displayed nothing but a series of stationary and moving multi-colored lines. I turned my monitor off and turned it back on, and that's when my screen went horizontal. To get the cursor to go "up and down" on my spiffy new horizontal screen, I have to move the mouse left and right. What could have happened?
All the colors on the screen look perfectly fine, and everything seems normal except that nothing is vertical.
Both my monitor and computer are brand new. I bought them both about three weeks ago. The monitor is a Samsung Syncmaster 914V LCD-screen, and the computer is an eMachines T5020, if it matters.
I've tried looking at all the display options, but nothing seems to correspond to this problem. I have no idea what button on my keyboard I may have hit.
