Weird Shit
« on: 19 Oct 2006, 03:27 »

So I rebooted my computer this morning and when I got back into windows my entire screen was turned on it's side. I'ts like someone just rotated the monitor 90 degrees clockwise. I have never heard of this happening befoer and have NO idea how to fix it. I know it's not a problem with my monitor because when I restart the computer all the loading screens are correct it's just when windows opens that I have this issue. Can anyone offer ANY advice for me? Thanks.

Oh I'm also a complete dumbass when it comes to computers and typing sideways is really annoying so I apologize if I come of as a complete tool.

Turn your monitor on its side.

There should be something in display options, I have ATI catalyst so I can right click that to rotate my screen.

Yeah, many video card drivers give you options to rotate the display.  Have a poke around in there - its usually gotten to by right clicking on the desktop, going "Properties"->"Settings"->"Advanced".  It should be in there somewhere.

Yeah, it's almost certainly a graphics card issue, just go look at the settings.

At my old school we could hit ctrl-alt-up and turn the screen upside down.  I used to do it randomly to computers and watch all the students and teachers go "omgz wtf!?"
I was the intern too, so basically, I was really just making work for myself.  But it was hell of fun.

Try ctrl-alt-leftarrow or ctrl-alt-rightarrow as well.  My monitor at work can rotate and flip (and do jumping jacks) and I discovered it by accident one time. It was weird.

That must be the most bizzare, useless feature in the whole world.

if your monitor can actually pivot 90 degrees, it'd be kinda useful for working on regular-sized documents and layout business. but otherwise...?
