Make sure the resolution is set correctly for size of screen like 1024x768 and not 768x1024. Some resolution settings give a bit weird looks.

Also, some video cards allow you to flip the screen around 90, 180 or 270. I think that the shortcut is CTRL+ALT+Up Arrow to set it right.

Someone could just be playing silly buggers...
