You can also (if using XP) click CTRL+ALT+ARROW KEY. Find out which ones fix your monitor.

The Windows key and letter X will bring up the "Windows Mobility Center" and it is also available there if the other options didn't work for you. HTH.

thx for the help! I got it taken care of, (thank goodness)

I actually use that combo of keys quite a bit, being a video game buff.

My HP tc4400 did not change the screen orientation with ctrl-alt-arrow, so this was a nice shortcut to find.

On some Toshiba Notebooks (ie. Sattelite L350D) you must press CTRL+SHIFT+Cursor to change the screen rotation.

All you have to do is go to NVDA setting on the little tool bar option same one where the volume is and then go to rotation settings and click on 0 degrees
