the Display on my laptop has turned 90 degrees to the right!

by rodney-you-plonker / June 15, 2007 11:38 PM PDT


the display on my ADVENT 8109 laptop has turned 90 degrees to the right, If I turn the Laptop upright I get it all working in portrait rather than the normal landscape!!

I presume I hit a formation of keys the instigated this, so there must be a way of returning it to normal.

Can some please help me as my laptop is useless as it is?

thanks in anticipation.

I'm running Windows Media Center Edition
Version 5.1 (build 2600)
