  1. Hi,
    Can anyone assist on a problem a friend of mine has??
    She has just mailed me to say her laptop display is upside down. Not sure what she has done or what she needs to do to resolve.
    Any help and advice would be very much appreciated.
    Thanks in advance
    Mez

    Tell her to try pressing CTRL, ALT and the Up Arrow keys simultaneously. That will fix it if its a GMA 950 powered laptop.

    Edit- Well, thats a general statement but those are the default hotkeys for display rotation that come with the GMA 950 Drivers. If it doesn't do anything, next port of call is Control Panel, and look for the graphics settings. Rotation should be controllable from there, and that will apply to most all graphics cards.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Tell your friend to try holding down the CTRL, ALT and UP (arrow) keys to see if that works.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Also if she has a nVidia videocard then go to the nVidia control panel and you could turn the display like that, she probably was playing with it and accedently turned the display ;)
