    There are a number of utilities that can do this. ATI, for example, has a control (look in the system tray) that you can cause the image to rotate. Rotation is often done with rotatable monitors.

    Right-click on the desktop and select Properties. Click the Settings tab. In the middle of the page there will be a box labeled Display:. Write what it says there and post it. Also, click on the Advanced button, near the bottom, and tell us what it says there. More than likely, this is the area that will be used to correct the problem. Look for a "Rotation" tab in there. It may be as simple as clicking a button under that.

    Post back with your information. (Sorry that you have to look "upside down").

    NVidia chipsets are also capable of doing this as well but you have to use the vendor software to chage the monitor settings, not the internal windows desktop settings.

    Other wise you could just flip your whole monitor around for the time being... lol!

    I'm really sorry but my first thought when I saw the heading was... flip your monitor up the right way :p

    Try pressing Ctrl and Alt together while pressing the up arrow key.

    If that doesn't work, I'm sorry.
    That's the only thing I would suggest.

    Well, I know some computer monitors do flip anyway that you want them to, like the one I am using now. Is it possible that someone flipped it to mess with you?

    Like mentioned, on Vista, CTRL, Alt, and up or down, and even left or right,
    And on XP, right click your Desktop, click Graphics Options, select rotation, 90, 180, 270.

    Just right click on desktop and go to properties then go to setting you find the answer to rotate the monitor with angels as 90 180

    Go to Graphics Properties and click on rotation then set it correctly. This is in your graphic acclerator
