This is normally caused by accidentally pressing a combination of keys. To correct it, hold down Ctrl and Alt and press one of the four arrow keys (up, down, left or right).

Alternatively, you may have a Rotation setting in the display properties of the graphics card. If all else fails, try restoring the system to an earlier date.

The ability to rotate the screen image is a feature of your video card, to help it work with monitors that rotate to portrait orientation. Almost certainly you accidentally pressed Ctrl-Alt, and
some arrow key.
Rotate it back using those keys.

Just wanted to says thanks to those who had the solution to this problem. Funny, I think my cat laid down on the keyboard and pushed Control+Alt and an arrow key. Applied solution and all is good!
