Hello All:

I'm actually writing on behalf of my dad who is having the most bizarre problem with his computer. He had to ctrl-alt-del yesterday to shut down a problem program and all of a sudden, his computer screen shifted everything 90 degrees. Yes - the image on his screen is sideways and he (we) cannot figure out why it is doing this. Is it the video card? Windows XP? The universe's cosmic shiftings?

Anyone with ideas? Any help is much appreciated!

Thats bizarre. Go into the control panel and double click on the display settings icon. Go into settings and then advanced properties. Look around in there for video alingment

Thought I'd follow up with the solution in case this happens to anyone else. Its a flat screen thing. How to fix it, most simply - is press Ctrl-Alt-Up Arrow to reset the orientation. You can make it go sideways by pressing Ctrl-Alt-Side arrow.
