Windows 7: How to rotate to portrait mode ?

18 May 2010   #11

Win 7 32bits Ultimate

Feature may not be available because of some limitation of the driver of the integrated GPU ( a GMA 950 ? ).

FX 5200 does support rotation ...

The first post stated you were using an nVidia FX 5200. I just successfully rotated one of my monitors (an IBM L192p) attached to my FX 5200. In the nVidia control panel (version 1.5.2400.10), there are a list of top-level selections down the left side. The first is 3D Settings, and the second is Display. Under Display, there is a selection called 'Rotate display' that worked for me. I did find that using the nVidia control panel somehow messed up where all my monitors were located with relation to each other, so I had to go back to the Windows display settings and rearrange them after getting the rotation done.

But ... the last post stated you were using a GMA 950 from Intel, rather than the FX 5200 you originally mentioned. My experience is obviously specific to the FX 5200, so I can't tell for sure if this applies to you or not.

And yes, I know this was two years ago, so maybe you aren't even using that machine anymore. But someone else using an old FX 5200 might find this useful.

So ... I've proved that the FX 5200 supports rotation, but this is on a Windows XP system. The driver, or the nVidia control panel for Windows 7 may have different options.

Setting Portrait or Landscape
