Check your video card driver/ software, many manufactures include features that allow you to flip or rotate the screen.

lol this has happened to me on my laptop. It can actually be a useful feature when lying down etc . Anyway, try pressing the windows key + a directional key. If you have a function (Fn) key, try pressing that and a directional key. That rotates the screen on my laptop. Good luck!

Grego is right, it works the same with our college computers.

If it isn't the Windows key, try - Ctrl or Alt and the directional key.

Ah, I'm back home with my laptop. It is ctrl+alt+directional key (up). I don't really use the feature, but it has it's merit. I'm guessing this should work for you. If not, here's what you can do: Simply take your monitor and position the base very delicately so that it is now perfectly straight above the so called "top" of your monitor. Be sure that the "top" lies flat on your desk.

In lamens terms, flip the biitch.

Problem solved .
