I am having a problem with my laptop (Dell Latitude C610). When I boot up, Windows XP appears as a horizontal orientation, so I am unable to view the bottom of the page. The right side of the screen is blank. Help! I can not find any information as to how to fix this problem.

Hi doxiegirl and welcome to Geeks to Go.

I assume from your description that the screen has rotated 90 degrees.

Are you using Nvidia for your graphics?
Right click on your desktop and choose properties.
Select the settings tab.
Select the advanced spot.
Select the Nvidia tab and look for NVrotate

Otherwise here is the link to a google search. See if any of those help. http://www.google.co...ated 90 degrees

The graphics card is an ATI Radeon Mobility. Also, the screen is not so much rotated, as being displayed in a portrait orientation. What I mean is that the width of the resolution will not fill the screen no matter how high I set it and leaves a black bar on the right side. Also, the resolution appears to be vertically stretched past the bottom boundary of the screen even at 800 x 600. I cannot see the taskbar at all and everything appears very stretched. I have tried updating the video card driver but that did not help at all. Rarely when I restart the computer, the problem seems to fix itself, then the problem returns next time I power off the laptop.
