Default Vista Help

Using Windows Vista Home Basic, playing games online and suddenly the screen flipped 45 degrees, so the image was on its side. I think it may of been due to a combination of keys pressed on the keyboard. Does anyone know how to turn it back?

Im in safe mode, and have to be in it for the screen to be ok.

Anyone help, need advice urgently!!!

I have never seen nor heard of this problem. Thru all my years of using XP or now Vista. Only thing i can even begin to suggest is to remove your video drivers from safe mode then restart in normal and see if the driver re-install does the trick.

I do not accept support questions via EMail, PM, IM or my G+ page!

Phone: LG Optimus G Pro
Running: Stock JB from LG with Nova Launcher

its a feature of the graphics card

If I remember correctly, press ctl, atl and the left, up, down, or right arrows depending on what way the screen needs to rotate. not positive...

if thats not it, its some combo... maybe ctl + arrow or alt + arrow key

had it happen to myself took me forever pressing random assortment of keys to get it fixed, might try googling it too, but i know it worked for me.
