    Monitor has gone upside down

    Hi,

    Quick question and something I've resolved by randomly pressing loads of keys at once before, but need to do again.

    The monitor, has soon as it gets into windows, is displaying everything upside down. Obviously someone has pressed something on the keyboard as I managed to sort it before by pressing a load of keys.

    What are they?

    I think it depends on the manufacturer of the gfx card, but try Ctrl+Shift+Down Arrow

    You have to be logged on while doing it as well.

    What chipset? Intel uses CTRL-ALT-Up and CTRL-ALT-Down
    You can disable this in the Intel Extreme Control Panel

    This can also be done by holding down just the ALT and down arrow key, especially on the Dell systems which also use intel cards.

    Just for reference you can also put the screen on its right and left sides as well doing this using the arrow keys.

    There was an exe in the 'downloads' section of edugeeks which disables this on all intel cards.

    Here's the patch to prevent the screen rotation:

    The horrid little program that allows this is usually called IGFXTRAY.EXE. Remove it from the registry as above and delete from the computer.

    Re: Monitor has gone upside down

    ha ha, well I found ICT my worst lesson they simply wasnít enjoyable in GCSE stage. I didnít learn anything new much, in fact the best bits of ICT when Beeswax would teach me some stuff on Dreamweaver. I loved that because i always learnt something new.

    I Just used to play tricks like that not very often though, another one was pressing sticky keys to annoy teachers. (F18 Computers Beeswax). I didnít used to hack and stuff like that because that is when you get in real trouble.

    But since i have been working in the CLC i have found out how very annoying these little tricks are when i have to go round each evening putting things back to there previous settings. Last week some kids from Middleton changed the resolution on the iMacs to very low so everything on the screen was massive. They did it though the ATI control panel.
    GITS!
