The strangest thing happened to my computer this morning the entire screen was flipped upside down.I just kept looking at the key  that was right but the screen was flipped.I took the battery out and waited a minute replaced the battery and restarted the computer and that corrected the problem.I was just wondering if any of you have ever had this happen and what caused it.I laid something down on the key board maybe a series of keys were punched and that caused it ?????? I called my niece and she said that happened to my sister but her cat had walked over the keyboard.

My son said that if you hold down CTRL, ALT, and the down arrow on a MAC computer it will turn the screen upside down.  Holding CTRL, ALT and the up arrow will turn it back around.  It tried it on my computer (Dell) and it doesn't work so, I'm not sure it that is what happened to you or not.  He said he can do it on the computers at school.

Hi Debbie I was exploring on Yahoo and it explained how to flip it and turn it right side up again.Exactly how your son said to do it.Thanks for your help.This morning I laid something on the key board and got busy doing something else and when I return to the computer the screen was upside down.LOLEmbarassed I was shocked and thought what in the world is this.It's another learning experience for me,now I'll know how to fix it the next time.Smile

I gotta tell you that would have thrown me for a loop.  I do not have a lap top so other than turning the monitor upside down I would have had to leave it that way until my daughter or Son in law came to "fix" it.  Most likely I would have turned the computer off and that might have fixed it but I would have been lost.

Glad you got it fixed Gale.  Now, let's just hope nobody decides to turn the pages of this website upside down for Halloween lol.  That would really freak me out!

Yikes ---- Like Nikki I would have NO idea what to do (and I have a laptop like Gale)  but I would have to call a computer repair shop!
Gale -- so glad you're all OK and still here

I'm learning more and more all the time but most of the time it's by accident.I'll get into something and I'll call my neice and she talks me through if she can.I was looking around and I can flip the screen to the left or right lol lol lol !!!! This would be a great April fools joke to play on someone or a Halloween prank.I'm glad I got it fixed too! It's hard standing on your head to try and use this thing.lol lol lol !!!

I would have been "lost" too.  As always, turning it off (re-booting) and back on fixes lots of problems.  But I hate to do that.
