Screen orientation on laptop

Hello everyone,

My weimaraner recently pressed something on on the keyboard of my Dell Studio 1737 (Win 7 Ultimate 64bit), and now each time Windows loads it loads with the login screen sidways. I have to change the orientation each time, but how to I reset it?

Thanks,

I would imagine you have to click on the desktop -> screen resolution -> orientation and choose the one you want. If it does not work, try doing it using the administrator account (Built-in Administrator Account - Enable or Disable). The only other option would be if this is controlled by the video card or if you have on-board video controller, then by Intel video driver. Then you would go through that driver properties.

Start> Control Panel> Display> In the left column click Change Display Settings. This window below opens. Under resolution see the Orientation curtain in yellow circle of picture?
Make it landscape click Apply bottom right.

Done.

On Tablet PCs, screen orientation can be changed so that any side of the screen can become "the bottom" of the desktop. Unfortunately, the result is that a wallpaper intended for a 1200 x 800 desktop, is stretched to fill a 800 x 1200 desktop. See the effect in the attached images. Is there any...
