Can I hit it with this still?
If it's your own PC... why sure.. :icon_mrgreen:
Now you see, I COULD of said something like
"Did it start out saying SOUND FOR DUMMIES"
But I DID NOT SAY THAT, we would never tease ya at all.
I'm glad you got it fixed Carrie !
You're such a nice guy.. They must have broke the mold when they made you, Dr. Phil. :flag:

After you... :icon_mrgreen:
Good Evening Geeks.
I have another lil problem... My granddaughter was over and decided to play on my computer--looking for pup pups and "Waw Wee". She's just under 2 years old and has no business on the computer, unsupervised... That's another story... LOL.
Long story short. I have to turn my monitor sideways just to read the page. I can't get anything to go right side up....
This one is a little trickier...
My guess is that she somehow accessed the software that controls your video card. Probably through some obscure hotkey combination that cause the screen to rotate.
My system has an ATI video card in it, so the following instructions may only apply to me. If you have an nVidia based card, I'm sure that one has similar software too.
Anyway, on the toolbar at the bottom of the screen look for the 'ATI' symbol and double click it. It should open the "Catalyst Control Center". On the left side of that screen, select "Displays Manager" if it hasn't been selected already. Toward the bottom of that screen you should see a dropdown menu just under "Rotation". Select "Stanadard Landscape (0)". That should set your screen back to normal.
Thanks for the quick response, CBF. I don't seem to have an ATI card or anything like that. I'll prolly have to call Dell again.
You dont have them on speed dial do you?
I'm working on my European accent so they don't recognize me... :icon_mrgreen: Anyway, I'm using my monitor turned sideways until I get this fixed... A friend is going to take a look at it tomorrow.
Is it fixed?
