Is there a reset button on your monitor? You can reset the monitor from it's menu, there should be a button on the monitor to get to the menu.

Default There is no reset.

And we've tried turning off the monitor and back on. I'm thinking its something to do with the OS settings somehow. But I dont know what.

Not so sure because the monitor should have an "Auto" button represented by an A and there should be a menu button where you can get it and reset the monitor colors and setting.

If you have pivot pro, You can accidentally turn the screen 90, 180... degrees. You should have a quick launch icon or something to turn the
screen.

Im assuming that this is an LCD monitor, your POSITIVE there is no reset button or option?

what type of monitor is it (make/model)?

if its off rotation in the bios than its not an OS problem.
