    We have a row of newer Dell Optiplexes in one of the business labs at the high school. They have a CTRL+ALT+Right Arrow function that will flip the image on the monitor any which way.

    Anyone know a way to disable this so students can't mess with it.

    I don't have this option on my Intel graphics card, but I found this on their web site.


    In Windows XP go to Start | Control Panel.

    If the Windows XP Control Panel is in Classic View you will see the Intel(R) Extreme Graphics icon in the Control Panel window. Double click on it to open it.

    If the Windows XP Control Panel is in Category View you will see Pick a category on the right side of Control Panel. On the left side of Control Panel click on Other Control Panel options found in small print under See Also, and then double click on Intel(R) Extreme Graphics. (If nothing appears under See Also then click on See Also to open the list of Control Panels. Then click on Other Control Panel options.)

    At the top of the Intel(R) Extreme Graphics window that opens click on the Hot Keys tab.

    Remove the check from the box labeled Enable Hot Keys to disable the Hot Keys feature, and click OK to save this change. Close Control Panel.

    Neat-thanks...

    Hope it works...I think these machines do have Intel Graphics, which really drags them down considering otherwise they have P4HTs, a gig of RAM, and 100 GB SATAs...

    I'll give it a shot tomorrow and see if it works, sounds like it will...

    Thanks again!
