Default Upside-Down Screen Contents

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.

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.

Default More Keys: Upside-Down Screen Contents

Dear Mike and Everyone,

Here is a full list of keys that somebody on another website sent me for
screen orientation problems, in case it's ever useful.

"Ctrl-Alt-Up - right side up

Ctrl-Alt-Right - 90 degrees

Ctrl-Alt-Down - 180 degrees

Ctrl-Alt-Left - 270 degrees

If that doesn’t work, try Ctrl-Shift-R"

I haven't tempted fate by trying any except the first, which resolved my
problem.

Best,

Claire

Thanks,

I am aware of these key combinations which is why I suggested you try
Ctrl-Alt-Up to correct your problem. Unfortunately not all graphics
drivers use the same key combinations.

I have tried to use ctrl-alt-up, ctrl-alt-down, and ctrl-alt-r and nothing is
happening with my computer. My 5 year old son put the computer screen upside
down so I'm not sure how to get out of it. But those suggestions are not
working for me. Does the computer have to be on a particular screen for those
solutions to work?
