    Log in screen upside down?

    Some bright spark has changed the settings so that the screen is upside down.

    I know there is a simple combination of keys to press to re adjust the screen but it has been a while since I have done this.

    Does anyone know what the procedure is?

    Thanks

    Alex

    It's something like ctrl-alt then the up arrow key.
    Can't test here I'm afraid as we had the same problems and locked it down.

    Ctrl + [Alt] + Left/Right/Up/Down?

    Yes, that's the one. It's the intel graphics control panel doing that. Just block igfxtray.exe in your software restriction policies.

    Computer says yes.
    I had to log in first then stand on my head to orientate and then do the keystrokes.

    Would it have been better from a health & safety point of view to just turn the monitor upside down?

    That would have made it look all to easy, I do have to justify my oh so high salary and perform the odd trick now and then.

    Course - they might have done it through the options on the monitor itself

    Or maybe they have been super sneaky and removed the stand/base plate and rotated the monitor only to fix the stand back (on the top).

    In fact, think i'll go do that now! Jolly good fun

    Visit:

    http://www.jddesign.co.uk/

    And download Vidres - its free.
    I use this as part of a logon script so when users next logon to the workstations it sets the vid res and screen back to the way it should be.

    Or there is another called setres:

    http://www.iansharpe.com/downloads.php

    Again, as part of a logon script this would set the screen res back to what it should be.

    Re: Log in screen upside down?

    xx years ago on a training course the guys who maintained monitors in TV Centre went around inside everyone's TV in our block (we were Tx engineers and didn't understand how TV's worked ) and reversed the scan coil connections on the back of the tubes

    That was a good one

    Re: Log in screen upside down?

    check your graphics cards/monitor documentation for any clues

    once you sort it, check if the graphics card has the rotation option, if so disable it, also uncheck the shortcut keys option if your graphics card allows
