Right click on an empty space in your desktop. Select > Screen Resolution. You can switch Landscape / Portrait mode there. Good luck!!

Glad you got it sorted out, but just as a point, this forum is for Windows 7. If you do happen to ask about XP in the future, you should definitely specify that in the question or you'll continue to get answers that don't apply.
