    OK, so this one is a first for me, and I cant figured out how my friend pulled this one off:

    He was cleaning something (probably coffee) off his keyboard, and he some how managed to hit some key combination that flipped his display upside down. Also, the mouse direction is reversed (push mouse up, pointer goes down, etc)

    Anyone have a clue how he pulled this one off?

    Its win XP (i believe serv. pack 2) its a desktop model, using the video on the motherboard (i dont have the MB model)


    ps, if your wondering why im posting for a friend, its because he's visually impaired, and since this happened, he cant read his monitor at all.

    Hold down the CTRL key, the ALT key and the UP or DOWN arrow at the same time. some display drivers/chipsets have this “feature” and your fix could be as simple as that.

    did he by any chance spill something in the keyboard? if the above fix doesnt work i would maybe get a new keyboard and he should be back to normal.
