    Check your graphic card settings. I have a 6600gt, and can invert my screen. Try going: right click your desktop, select properties. Go the settings tab. Clieck advanced. There do you have a tab for your graphics card? Mine shows I have a 6600Gt. After selecting the tab it displays options. I have NVrotate. That rotates my screen.

    So, what hardware do you have?

    Customer Disservice: Because we're not satisfied until you're not satisfied.

    Talking Upside down image

    When you hit CTRL-ALT-DELETE you must have bumped the down arrow key. The keystroke combination to flip the image upside down is CTRL-ALT-downarrow key... to flip the image rightsideup again, press CTRL-ALT-up arrow key.

    Welcome to

    Unfortunately, this post is quite old, and the original poster has likely found a solution or moved on. He has not signed in in over a year.

    many of us browse this forum just absorbing information and fixes, not posting/solving our own problems... i don't see any harm in reviving an old thread if you have something useful to add (in this case a duplicate solution, but they got right to the point).

    As they say, history repeats itself... someone else will have the same problem

    Thumbs up Deja Vu all over again

    My son inverted the display on his system, without a clue to how he did it. I found this useful forum while looking for a solution and greatly appreciate the simple & direct response "recently" posted. Thanks

    Like others, I was so relieved to get the answer to the problem of the upside down screen, which had been caused by someone accidentally pressing the wrong keys on the keyboard! Thank you very much for giving me the answer so quickly.
