Windows 7 starter edition screen rotatio




Sorry I am new. I posted this as a reply first instead of a news thread. Sorry again.

Just got new acer netbook. No options anywhere to rotate the screen. Want to rotate for ebooks and ease of reading documents. No one at tech support( 4 different technicians) at acer seem to know why. From what I have read it may be disabled like some of the other functions are in this starter version. Could someone confirm this. If it has been disabled, is there a work around for this. Please help.. Have tried everything. REALLY disappointed. Wish it had XP instead

Use the free program iRotate Download iRotate 1.37 - This is a screen rotation utility that can be used by anyone. - Softpedia.

Just install it and run it, and you'll see the icon in the bottom right. Just right click and choose the orientation you want.

Thanks so much. I already downloaded eeerotate and it did not work. Could it be that something has been disabled on the video card itself? I talked to intel that is the video card being used (Graphics Media ACcelerator 3150) but they said there is no way to tell if the chipset has been disabled. If it has then a new driver would not help. Just thought maybe someone had run into this same problem and knew the answer. The netbook is an Acer Aspire One 532H-2268 running Window 7 starter. Thanks for any answers someone can give.
