    My young son has unintentionally inverted the diplayed image of all PC output . Even the windows startup screens are inverted. Any suggestions for the frustrated Dad, who is probably only a couple of clicks from a solution.

    There is a thread here: Post 499954 the started long ago but has recent entries at the end. You should read the whole thread because your video card probably has the answer.

    Just for a quick test, these hot-keys were mentioned in the thread:
    • Ctrl+Alt+Up arrow gives the correct (landscape) orientation (nominally "normal" to this explanation)
      Ctrl+Alt+Left arrow causes left display edge become bottom edge (rotates display 90 degrees from "normal", to the left)
      Ctrl+Alt+Right arrow causes right edge becomes bottom edge (rotates display 90 degrees from "normal", to the right)
      Ctrl+Alt+Down arrow causes top edge becomes bottom edge (upside down).

    Check if the monitor has a 'Menu' button on the front - it sounds like it may have the capability of being hung from a ceiling or wall mounted. There may be an option to invert it there.

    Otherwise, right-click the Desktop > Properties > Settings > Advanced - the graphics card may have the same (invert) feature.

    Failing that, make and model of monitor and graphics adapter please!
