    LOL! I think you have to actually open it and turn it right side up down.

    or

    Video card settings

    If the graphics card is an Intel GMA then you can use keyboard shortcuts to reflip the screen. Simply hold "Ctrl" and "Alt" then press the Up arrow key to fix the screen. Pressing the other arrows will flip the display in that direction. Alternatively, right click the Graphics Driver in the taskbar (again for a GMA), choose options, rotation --> normal.

    I remember playing this little prank in college. It was so fun. Some people actually turned their monitors upside down.

    there is an option in my x3100 graphics program that allows you to flip your screen..perhaps you accidentally enabled this? trying doing this... I was messing around with it once and did it on purpose to see what it was like...the funny part is that it took alost 5 minutes to get it back to normal because i had to turn my head upside down to control the mouse properly...at the same time my gf walked in, and essentialy thought i was losing my mind
