    Computer Image Rotates

    We have a Dell laptop running XP. The whole screen is rotated 90 degrees. Is there something a philosphy major can do to fix this. Tried to shut off and reboot - no effect. The Dell logo has the correct orientation, but, when Windows opens it is rotated.

    Try right-clicking, then mouse over graphics options, rotation, then click normal.


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    Had a similar Dell. This should do it.

    I suggest that you spend some time pondering the greater meaning of it all.

    Thanks folks, this took care of it. We had our grandsons visiting - I suspect this was their handiwork.
