Is your screen upside down in XP?

It is not often that we get phone calls about this issue but it is a pretty simple fix. A customer usually accidently hits random keys on the keyboard and then all of the sudden their screen is upside down or sidways. Here is the fix:

  • Step 1

    Press the Ctrl + Alt + arrow (left, right, up or down keys) keys to rotate the screen in the direction you would like.

  • Step 2

    Press the CTR + ALT and arrow keys until you have the desired rotation. This works with most computers that run on Windows XP. If this doesn’t work, follow Step 3.

  • Step 3

    Click the Start menu then Control Panel, then Display, then the Setting tab, and finally the Advanced button. Check for an Orientation option. Once found, just select the correct Orientation needed.

If you are still having issues and these steps did not help, please feel free to call one of our highly trained technicians at (904)371-3118.
