Vertical view onscreen

by valfiddian / January 7, 2011 6:48 PM PST

I am Win7 on a packard bell'oneTwo' and have been running it happily for several months, but recently, after a short blackout, everything on my screen went vertical!
I have resorted to turning my monitor on its side -- but since it is a touch-screen with CPU in one, this is very inconvenient!
It boots up horizontal with the Windows logo but then reverts to vertical.
Has anyone had this happen?
