    My friend was listening to music and then started up a game. My computer, being old and slow, couldn't handle it so it got all slow and kinda messed up. So he did something, I didn't really see what, and when everything cleared up, the desktop was totally inverted. It was upsidedown and backwards. Not only this, but the mouse was also backwards. I don't know what caused this, and don't have any idea how to fix it. Someone please help!

    This works with some graphic cards.
    Ctrl+Alt+ arrow key.

    Welcome to TSG....

    If you let your friend do this to your computer and you did not see what it was that he did and too me it sounds like it is a prank of some sort. I have seen programs that were installed that make your text fall to the bottom of the screen and jsut pile up in little piles good joke but not too funny. I really hope this is not the type of joke he pulled.

    I would suggest using the system restore to go back at least a day before this happened. You might want to re-install the display adapter drivers for the video it could be a display setting.

    One thing I would do is ask your friend what he done did to your computer and if he did something that caused this have him fix it and them do not let him or anybody else use your computer at all.
