I was going about my business on my computer when the screen went black. It stayed that way for a few seconds and when the image popped back up, everything was upside down. I restarted the computer hoping that it would return itself to a normal state. That didn't work. Microsoft's site has proved to be no help. Is there any way to solve this? I'm going to back up my data in case I have to reset. Will that even work?
Please let me know. The computer is only a few months old. It's an IBM T43.
Thanks.

pressing Ctrl, Alt, and the arrow keys can rotate and flip over the display. You may also have accidentally bumped the up arrow while using Ctrl-Alt-Del. also going back to a day or two before the problem occoured might help out as well.....

another thing, if anyone else has access to your computer, there are several joke virus's that do this (as a real bad, and ever-so-tasteless joke) you could always run a Housecall online virus scan (free) by TrendMicro.... just check the box to auto clean. If you use Internet Explorer, you will be required to download and install an Active X object before you can scan, If using Firefox, or Opera, just having Java (jre) is all that is required. :thumbsup:
