    Usually, the way to get it back to normal is to press Ctrl+Alt+Up button (usually associated with video card software).

    Just to note: Ctrl+Alt+Down button will flip it upside-down, Ctrl+Alt+Left button will rotate it anti-clockwise, and Ctrl+Alt+Right button will rotate it clockwise.

    If it doesn't work, let us know.

    It's not a trick everybody knows. But it is fun to play with once you do know it (especially with other people who don't know it...).

    Gotta have some fun in your life...:cool:
