Hi!
Having a little problem - my Vista has suddenly gone onto it's side! I've
tried ctl alt and arrow keys, but this hasn't helped.

Any ideas?
Thanks!

Hi, Henry.

How 'bout a picture of that? :^}

Some monitors allow the display to switch from landscape to portrait mode.
This is handy to view long (legal size?) documents to be displayed at their
full length. Software must be able to adjust to this too, of course. Do
you have such hardware and/or software?

When you post back, please tell us at least a few basic facts about your
system. Make and model of computer and display monitor might be most
helpful. Which version of Vista - might be important. What software might
be very important. And what were you doing just before it went onto its
side?

The ability to rotate the screen image is a feature of your video
card, to help it work with monitors that rotate to portrait
orientation. You accidentally pressed Ctrl-Alt, and some arrow key.
Rotate it back using those keys.

You say you've done this, but I would try it again.

If Ctrl+Alt+Up arrow didn't work try Ctrl-Shift-R
