There may be options in one of the programs down (or up :whistling:) by the system clock where you can choose the orientation of the page. You've probably just rotated it 180 degrees.

Try pressing ctrl + alt + <up arrow>

If that doesn't work, you may have an inversion setting in your display settings. It should be in the settings tab (advanced). Look for that.

AS MY READING ABLITIES UPSIDE DOWN ARE NOT VERY GOOD


Haha... can you read better upside-down in Caps Lock? :whistling:

Yes, I remember one day in school... the teachers have monitors on our computers, so we used Ctrl-Alt-Arrow Key to invert our monitors and everything. It was so fun. Try Ctrl-Alt-Down or Ctrl-Alt-Up. Don't do left or right unless you can read sideways better than upside-down :blink:

being that its a laptop, i cant see how hard it would be to just lay it flat and turn it upside down in order to read things. :whistling:

but anyways, Ctrl-Alt-Up should do the trick, but you usually have to be logged in for this to work. so remember to log in before you try this.
