Hey there,

I'm having an acute problem concerning my monitor. The display has turned upside down and I don't know how to set it the right way. Can you please help me coz it's very disturbing!

Hope to hear from you soon...

Hi,
No need to worry, this is a minor disturbance. All you have to do is as follows:
Press and hold "ctrl" + "alt" buttons and at the same time press the up arrow (navigation keys).

The screen display will rotate. Repeat the step until the correct position is obtained.

I'd like to add my name to the list of satisfied customers. A colleague of mine had the same problem just now, and Ctrl-Alt-uparrow did the trick.

Many thanks all

My friend's computer had the display turned upside down by her 2 year old son. Your suggestion of ctl+Alt+arrows worked. Thanks so much, I could not find the answer in the Dell troubleshoot guide!!!

This just happened to me and I used a combination of these answers to solve it. Just right click on the desktop and then select "Graphic Options." One of your choices with Vista will be "Hot Keys." Just Disable it and you'll be fine. Who wants this as an option anyway?!
