Assuming the monitor is LCD, perhaps the display settings have been rotated 90 degrees. Check for this.

Yeah, right click on your desktop, go to properties,click on the tab "settings", and check the settings on that monitor. If its a graphic problem, go to your graphics card control center and change that angle at which it is displaying. try this. if not, tell us.

Yeah you're right about that. Who are you today? Is it sin or nuke or chica or kagesmama or shuai. I must say you're having an identity crisis.

Good bye again...
