Display on startup

Whenever the laptop is switched on the display is in potrait!

Pressing F1 gets it back to normal but anyone know how to get rid of this default setting?

Could you please fill in your system Specs more thoroughly please.

If you are having problems doing so this forum recommends using Speccy.

I believe this is a problem with your Graphics card but I'm not entirely sure what Graphics card you have so I will post the link to the driver installation page when you have filled in your System Specs and we know what we're dealing with.
