Customer Question

my screen is upside down in 'extend mode' (pressing F4). I can get it the right way up in 'duplicate mode' - but this turns my 16:9 screen to a 4:3 size. How can I get back to the original, correct orientation, widescreen mode? - Should never have had let kids access to my laptop!

, then click on the resolution option
, then make sure the orientation option is set to Landscape, then click on Apply/OK.

Please let me know if there is still any issue. Thank you,

I'm sorry, I'm not sure what you mean by 2nd monitor

Expert:  Viet - Computer Tech replied 3 years ago.

When in extended mode, do you see the multiple monitors icons showing monitor #1 , #2, etc.? on the top when you are in Resolution?

 

 

 

Can you check at the back/bottom of the laptop for the exact model of your laptop?

 

Also, what's the brand/model of the monitor?

 

Edit: It looks like you are away; please reply back when you are available to continue. Thank you,
