Screen rotates when I start Half-Life 2!

  1. Hey all

    I just downloaded Half-life 2 and it seems that everytime I load it up, it rotates the screen 90 degrees counter-clockwise. I've tried restarting, and even rotating my own screen 90 clockwise in order to compensate but it doesn't seem to work!

    Is this a problem with my video card or maybe something in the game? I've never even heard of this happening before. :S

    I'm running it on my laptop:
    HP 6730b
    2.26GHz Dual Core
    2GB RAM
    Intel 4 series chipset family video card

    (I did notice that on start up the game warns me it has not heard of my video card. However the game seems to run alright, albeit its rotation)

    THanks. :)

    If you haven't already, install the most recent graphics driver. See if that helps. Go here: Intel

    Can that be an issue with some rotation settings in the Intel driver settings? I remember there is a tab somewhere in there which allow you to set that. But anyway, mail's suggestion is reasonably logical and you should try that. Regards

    When Half-Life loads up and it rotates, if you hold "Ctrl + Alt + Up) it should rotate it back round? and usually saves it on a per application basis although Mine doesn't.
