There is no such setting in Windows 98, as far as I know, so it is either the monitor (unlikely) or the video driver (likely) or the video card playing games with you (unlikely).
I should try another monitor (or this monitor on another machine), just to be sure. Then, if changing the settings of the videodriver doesn't help, delete the video card from Device Manager, reboot and do a fresh install. It will start with defaults, and that's surely not a rotated screen. Be sure to have the original driver at hand, or you'll end up with nothing (i.e. the default VGA driver).
Hope this helps. Post back if necessary.
After starting up, my desktop is rotated 90 degrees.
I have turned my monitor sideways to accomodate it.
I can't figure out how to correct it. Under settings -
Nview (Nvideo desktop manager) under "hot keys" -display mode, it lets me add a "hot key" to rotate
display 90,180,270 degrees, but after adding and then
trying it, nothing happens.
I'm running windows 98 on a 4 yr old Dell.
Any help is appreciated -thanks
