Log in upside down and when you get to the desktop, right click go to your graphic card properties and Rotate 180. Should work.

Dang, Chad...what have you been doing to your pc, dude?

Go to a blank spot on your desktop
Right click
go to "Properties"
click on "settings"
click on "Advanced"
go to "graphics driver"
click on "graphics properties"
click on "rotation"

go from there

<ctrl><alt><up> is the first thing to try.

RE: This is a feature in Windows XP Tablet PC Edition. Which makes sense. But it looks like ATI Intel copied the keystroke for the same "feature" in their video card drivers. turns-sideways-or-upside-down/

...will all have interesting effects too, if you're using the ATI driver.
