My entire view is now sideways and I dont know why. I was on a website when
it the entire system locked up, when it finally came back (unlocked) It
started flashing on and off and was suddenly sidways. I am running XP home
embedded. I am not sure what happened other then it locked up (I was playing
a game at the time on a website in a pop up window) and frequent this site
almost daily as does other members of my family. I have a virus scan as well
as a adware scan running currently. I have tried everything that I can think
of to correct this problem to no avail. Any help on this matter would be
greatly appreciated. Please excuse any typos, typing at a sideways glance is
a bit hard to do as well as a bit hard on the neck. Thanks for any help you
can provide. This is the first time in the entire time that I have owned
computers that this has ever happened to me or anyone that I know.

Yin,

I am not quite sure what is XP Home embedded.
I guess you posted to wrong newsgroup. You may want to post your question to
microsoft.public.windowsxp.general NG.

You're in the wrong group as there's no such thing as home embedded. I
trust you've looked in the display control panel? If you have an
NVidia or ATI graphics card, the display can be rotated from there. I
know this because I've rotated both for embedded. ;)

Thanks things are correct now. I didnt even think of that one, and it was the
only thing I didnt check.
