How to Rotate a Computer Screen 90 Degrees

Perhaps you built your own monitor, and the screen is displaying at the wrong angle now that it's all set up. Maybe you installed a new graphics card or driver, and it appears something has gone horribly wrong. It's possible you're just being creative, and think it would be cool to lay your monitor on its side and still be able to use the computer. Or, most likely, your cat or kids pressed some mysterious key combination which rotated your screen for you, and you can't get it back. Don't worry; getting your screen to rotate 90 degrees is easier than you think.



1 Identify in which direction your screen needs to be rotated. There are four shortcut key combinations, and each will rotate your screen so that the top of the screen is at the top, bottom, left or right side of your monitor; you need to know which combination to choose. Say you are you trying to correct a mistake, and put the top of your screen back where it belongs--at the top of the monitor. Or you are trying to rotate your screen because you are using your monitor differently than most people do, and want the top of the screen to be at the left or right side of the monitor, or even upside-down.


2 Hold down "Ctrl + Alt" and the "up" arrow key if you want to return the top of your screen to the top of the monitor. "Ctrl + Alt + Left Arrow" will rotate your screen so that the top of the display is on the left side of your monitor, and using the Right Arrow will put it at the right side. The Down Arrow will turn your screen upside down if your monitor is right side up. Make sure you hold all three keys down long enough; the screen may go back for a moment as the screen is rotated.


3 Open your "Control Panel" if nothing is happening, and see if there is an option to "Enable Screen Rotation" under your Display options. If not, you may not be able to rotate your screen. This is especially common with older computers, as they have older graphics cards or integrated video If you have a newer computer, you may need to have the graphics drivers updated in order for the shortcut to work.


Tips & Warnings

If pets or children accidentally rotated your screen, consider finding a way to better protect your keyboard not just from accidental keystrokes, but from pet hair and kids' spills. A keyboard cover might be in order.

I turned my screen up side down and cant turn back what can I do


Firstly log on to the computer and get in the main/desktop screen
now press and hold the "Ctrl" key, the "Alt" key and the right arrow key togather .. the screen will rotate. Keep hitting the right arrow key on the keyboard with the Ctrl and the Alt key pressed unless the screen is back to normal.
If it does'nt work you can also try this:
Go to Start>> Control Panel>> Display icon>> Settings tab>> Advanced button>> Intel(R) Extreme Graphics tab (or whatever your video card is)>> Graphics Properties button>> Rotation tab.
It should work
All The Best!!!

Mag innovision LT716s monitor


When I turn on my computer the monitor takes a long time to warm up and colors change and vertical lines flash across the screen from right to left before the screen becomes normal again. Now the power light even goes out upon turning on my computer and I have to unplug the video cord and plug it back in to start the screen back up which even takes longer.

A BIG PROBLEM


I hope this is the case, some tv's have screen and focus controls accessible from the back ,you can't miss them as you look at set from the back they should be in the right side,if you have access to them turn the bottom one to the right and remember how much you move it,this will aloow to see soemthing in the screen so you can put everything back to where it was,when you are done the picture will look too bright with lines the you turn the screen control to the left to make it perfect.You dont have to remove the back cover.I hope it works.
