I dont think this is the problem.
Cuz now I see that it's only a certain film I cant see. I downloaded
some episodes of Heroes, and when I play them they appear upside
down, but when I watch something else it's normal. It's just these
series.. Weird enough .. So what can I do ?


You could always try my suggestion. You have nothing to lose and a lot to
gain and until you do so you can't say that it won't work. Not all video
files/codecs make the same demands on the system so what works with one
video won't necessarily work with another.

Thank you for this my 3 year old sister did it to me and I ended up using the
computer with my head tilted to a 90 degree angle not confortable, this saved
my life as I was house sitting and this would have had in BIG TROUBLE. Thanks
a million.

For Intel Extreme graphics the key combination is Ctrl+Alt+Up Arrow to
return to normal view.

If the system is using an ATI graphics card is it possible that Hotkeys
are enabled and that these have been used to rotate the display. You
access the ATI control centre where this is configured by right clicking
on the desktop and selecting Catalyst Control Centre. You would then be
able to see the key combinations used.

I suspect that nVidia graphics might have a similar option.

My cat lay along the lower end of my keyboard while the computer was
on - which turned the contents of the screen upside down!

Re-booting and shutting down have failed to solve the problem. I also
tried systems restore but that didn't work either, although I'm not
sure if I was using it correctly.

All the start-up data is the right way up, but everything goes upside
down from Windows "Welcome" onwards.

Can you suggest any key combination that might fix the problem? Or
anything else? What combination of keys might the cat have pressed to
cause this?

Any answers, tips or ideas would be much appreciated.

By the up key do you mean the up arrow?

Mike,

Thank you for your information. The right click on the mouse, etc. is how I
was able to change my graphic setting. The cat changed my setting also!

Again, thank you. Rather than getting frustrated and waiting for my son for
assistance, I was happy to find your post and corrected my computer issue
myself (of course, not without your help!) Have a Happy New Year!
