Question Solved: The top part of my screen is on the bottom.
I have Windows XP and just went to IE7 a few weeks ago. I was checking my mail at yahoo last night when all of a sudden the computer screen changed. Now the top part of my screen is on the bottom under the time and that stuff. To be able to type in a url to go somewhere I have to move my mouse to the top of the page and then the mouse will show up at the bottom (where the top of the page is) Can anyone help with this? If I have to use the computer like this anymore I think It'll drive me crazy.

Upside down screen
Try this :

Ctrl + Alt + up down arrows

See if that does the trick

Sorry about the late response.

I just tried that. When I press those buttons together it scrolls my page up and down.

I still cant see what you mean, have you tried dragging the page to the top of the screen with your mouse? Put your mouse on the page you want to drag wait till it changes to an arrow and move the page up....... Not sure if that is what you mean or not

I messed around with the arrows and now have the URL box at the top.

Here's the most recent picture.

In the picture, right under the Start button there's a thick black line and then nothing. I did end up calling my mom about this though. She said it has happened to her before but she can't remember how she fixed it. It was because of something she pushed on the keyboard if that helps. I might just end up reinstalling windows if I can find the cd.

My suggestion is to power everything down and let it set for half an hour or hour.
Then power everything up again and see what things look like.

What video card and monitor do you have?
Some video cards have settings to control the position of the display on the monitor, as do most monitors. Usually these would just move the display off the edge of the screen, but yours may have a wrap around feature.

Go to Display Properties (right click the desktop, click properties) Settings tab. then click the advanced button. You'll have to check each tab/button to see if any options like that exist.

If could also be the monitor isn't quite syncing up with the signal the video card is putting out. You could try changing the monitor resolution in Display Properties, Settings, Advanced, Monitor tab. Set it one speed lower, ie if on 75Hz, try 72Hz. You could also try changing the Screen Resolution (Display Properties, Settings) one notch lower and then change it back.

I powered the computer down for an hour and when I powered up it was still the same.

Nope. I only have the one monitor.

My screen resolution is set to 1024 by 768 pixels.

I went to the monitor settings and the only thing there to change was the Screen Refresh Rate. I changed that from 75Hz to 72Hz. Pressed Apply and it made the screen completey normal!!! Thank you so much!

Thanks to everyone that tried to help
