Question Sideways screen on inspiron mini 10???? - 12-06-2011, 03:57 AM

My daughter pushed random buttons and before i could get to her soon enough, the screen went black for a second and when it came back on, its sideways. i have to tilt my head left to see the screen right. the start menu is on the right and everything just took a 90 degree turn. i called some supposed cutomer support who took over my computer but told me it was a virus. not sure how much of that i believe since i saw with my own eyes that my daughter did it. and nothing else is wrong with it but the view. can anyone help? please tell me its an easy fix.

I believe it is called the 'daughter virus'

Not sure that I can help but knowing the operating system & the model of Mini 10 can help. I have a Mini 10v with Win XP & Ubuntu on it that I can look at. Seems like Windows allows you to switch orientation of the screen display but I will defer to others here who use Windows regularly.

I assume this is Windows. Look in the taskbar tray (lower right) for an Intel Graphics icon. Right click on that and you will probably find an option for screen rotation.

I hope that one of the things mentioned help you! Wow, that's freaky to think it has that kind of a 'feature' in the OS, thank you for posting about it so if it happens to me I can try a couple of these suggestions to fix it.
