How to fix the problem of upside down monitor display?
Yesterday, when I turned on my Desktop computer, the monitor display was upside down. Similarly, the mouse was working in reverse - to point to any button on the right, I had to move the mouse to the left.

Initially, I thought it was because of some issue with the monitor. I played with the buttons on the monitor and tried to adjust various settings but to no effect - the display was still inverted, with all characters displayed upside down. I also right-clicked on the Desktop and checked the properties of the monitor but nothing worked. I finally hooked up the spare monitor but the problem persisted. However, now I knew that the problem was not with the monitor but with my PC itself.

Finally, after doing some research on the Web, I discovered the solution - I had to hit the Control-Alt-Up arrow keys and that resolved the issue. I guess, I accidentally must have hit some wrong key when hitting Control-Alt-Del but after I pressed the the Control-Alt-Up arrow keys simultaneously, the issue was resolved. Seems these keys will also resolve the issue if there is a sideways display on the monitor. While I have Windows XP, the above method may also resolve issues in Windows Vista.

If the above fix doesn't work, check out the tips on the following article:
