I found that if you press CTRL. ATL, and arrows you can make the screen look upside down, sideways and etc. This only works in Windows XP and it depends on your video card driver display that allows you to rotate 180% degrees or something like that. I just wanted to let people know this trick.

Weird, thanks for the tip. I one time messed up my display and made it go sideways and it was funky to put it back since my laptop touch mouse and the sideways screen really threw me off :|

I believe that it has something to do with nVidia drivers.
