Hello.

\015\012With ATI radeon you need to go to the ATI catalyst application to control the angle of the screen allowing it to go 180º or just 90º so you can read and see the screen sideways.

\015\012About the funtion keys or hot keys to automate this option they have to be configured in the program for a specific angle.

\015\012if you don't have the ATI catalyst control center i urge you to download it from the ati website.
