Having problems with your HP PC Desktops ?

I have an HP mini computer. My monitor screen, when I turn my computer on, has gone from a vertical to horizontal view screen.

Answers :


These are sweet monsters. Any change or even if you play with the default settings, it would harm you :P.


In order to switch any direction :-

Ctrl + Alt + Up arrow key ( for normal )

You can use downward for different position. Same with sideways.

I hope this would fix the issue. Any further question, let me know.

Thanks for using Fixya.

I turned on my computer two days ago and the screen was so skewed on the horizontal that I was unable to view the clock on the tool bar and the start program button at the same time. I have tried to adjust this by using the horizontal and vertical buttons. Moving the screen with the vertical button is not a problem, it works. Unfortunately nothing seems to happen when I use the horizontal button. The picture remains the same. I am wondering if the monotor is on its last legs?
