Q: Solved: Please help! Screensaver and main menu upside down!

I really hope someone out there can help as I have absolutely no idea what to do! My kids have been playing on the computer and now my screen saver, main menu buttons etc are upside down! Everything works perfectly fine you just have to tip the screen into a "portrait" position to do anything. I have tried turning off and unplugging but to no avail. We have a standard uk keyboard as apposed to a querty french keyboard and I suspect a button has been pressed somewhere! Hope someone out there has had a similar problem and can help. I am not very technical so would really appreciate answers in very plain computer speak! Thanks very much.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi All,

I opened up IE7 this morning and the main toolbar was missing. I mean the one with tabs on it, the print, edit, tools, favorites buttons etc.

Ive googled a few times and can only find answers on the menu bar recovery (press the ALT key etc)

obviously this reduces functionality, a lot. are there some registry keys that will restore it or does it mean re-install??

just to be sure, heres a picture of what i mean, its the bar outlined it red:

Thanks everyone

A:[SOLVED] IE7 on WinXP SP3 main toolbar missing (not the menu bar!) ???

Right-click the Titlebar, the Context Menu = Menubar, to enable classic Menubar, select View and select classic menu.

IE7 gives you a taste of how Vista is setup, no menu bars unless you enable them. IMHO, dumb, real dumb. Vista has enough of a learning curve without adding missing Menubars that everyone expects.

Ok, I have windows Vista. I was just shutting down, clicking the arrow, then shut down. but, i missed the arrow, and my start menu jumped to the top of my screen!
I have no idea what happened. The whole menu ( including the things i have open, like internet explorer, microsoft word, etc, and also everything that is normally in the bottom right corner, all the icons. like msn and the battery) is at the top of the screen. When i open up something, it goes above the normal top of the screen, (like where the minimize maximize and X are)
Can someone help?

I am using Windows XP on a Dell Inspiron E1505 Laptop.

This morning when I turned on my laptop the "Start Menu" Screen came up on the "Right" side and "Upside Down" on
my screen.

How do I restore it to its proper position on the "Left" side and "Rightside Up" on my screen?

Thank you

A:Start Menu Upside Down [Yikes!!!]

Hi Jungian, if I understand you well you have slided your taskbar. You just have to click and drag the start menu. You left click and hold anywhere on the taskbar and slide it where you want it.

If it doesn't work your taskbar is probably locked, you can right click the taskbar and uncheck "Lock taskbar"

Hi there,

Im looking for a way to add a few items to the MAIN / FIRST context menu that pops up when right clicking an object.
I know theres plenty of apps that will let you do this, but they all place everything in there own little drop down in the context menu.

Like file menu tools, shell toys, etc.
They always end up just like the "send to" menu...drop downs and slide outs.
Which is great and all, but im just looking for a way to cut out using a drop down / slideout menu.
The items i would like to add to the context menu would be in the very first context menu that pops up.

Basically this....where it says "move to" in the main context menu, I want another option to " move to sync".
The same goes for the "copy to" option.

G:\SYNC will be the target folder most likely.

Picture attached of what im looking to do. (its not real text, i made it up in paint.)

I got my context menu all cleaned up...now if i could actually ADD items to the main context menu...

Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Thanks for reading.

Im using Visual Studio .NET C# and am trying to write my own Menu Icons class simply for educational purposes. So far everything looks straightforward however I find that even overriding the OwnerDraw method for each menu item there still is a 3D Menu window that appears as a canvas for the menu items to appear on. The look im going for is a Visual Studio .NET 2003 menu which appears to have a "flat" non-3D window canvas. How do i make this canvas flat?

I suspect i have to make use of the Main Menu's "handle" property as well as Win32 API, perhaps even subclassing. If this is the case could this completely damage the managed code of C# I'm currently working with?

I had Windows 7 installed two times on two different partitions of the same HD. Then I added a second hard drive and installed Windows 7 a third time.

Now the boot menu shows 4 entries, with the main OS listed twice. And I can boot from either one. However, when I open BCDEDIT or use Easy BCD, only three OS' are listed.

How can I remove the duplicate entry from the boot menu?

A:Main OS shows up twice in boot menu?

Enter msconfig>Boot on the main OS and see if you can figure out which is the duplicate to delete it.

Strange it's not showing in Easy Edit Boot Menu tab. You may have overdone it with the multi-booting.

When you have separate HD's it's better to boot via the BIOS Boot order or one-time BIOS Boot Menu so that the HD's remain independent and free to come and go as you please. You can delete the separate HD's OS entry in Easy to use that method now if you want.

Check and make sure the connections on your mouse and keyboard are secure.

If you are using USB connections for them, try PS2 instead, in fact, if you can borrow a mouse and keyboard from another computer try them, again, preferably not USB connected.

If they are wireless, change the batteries (yes, they do indeed have batteries).

I can play Counter Strike 1.6 (non-steam) on the computer at home, but I have a problem on my laptop. I installed it, but this is what happens: when I double click the shortcut, the music comes up, the wallpaper with the two CTs, but there is no text where it's supposed to say New Game. Actually, when I hover with the mouse where the options are supposed to be (lower left corner of the screen), I hear the clicking noise.

I do have Tahoma, Arial and Verdana in Windows/Fonts/.

I am running Windows7 on both machines. 32-bit on the computer and 64-bit on the laptop (pretty sure that does not matter, because I managed to get Counter Strike 1.0 working on the laptop).

Does anyone have an idea of how to get this game working properly?

PS: I installed CS 1.5 - same problem, no text but there is clicking noise. I installed Source and everything worked, but slow because my lapotop is older than 3 years now.
PPS: I've tried reinstalling the game and updating drivers or using older versions - no luck.

PPPS: Moderator, I've pretty much copied this thread, with additional details from the games forum, because the problem here is a rendering problem, linked to the graphics and video settings. More people here, too.

I get a ghosting lately from pop-up menus that I can only clear by changing the resolution (refresh does not work). Any ideas how to fix this (screenshot included)?


A:Menu item ghosting - main screen

It would seem, from the lack of responses so far, that nobody understands what you mean by 'ghosting'. From your screenshot, the best guess I can make is that you are complaining about the pop-up message showing the words 'empty recycle bin'. Is that it?

You do not say what your Operating System is. We cannot possibly help you without that information. I can make suggestions (below) only applying to what I am running myself, which is Win 7 pro.

That exact pop-up wording is normally from a mouse right-click when hovering over the recycle bin icon, but it is only one of six possible actions. None appear without a right-click. So my further guess is you have been messing with some settings that cause it to happen, which might be found anywhere, such as 'ease of access centre' settings.
To explore that possibility, just start typing ease of acc.... into your system search box. It might be a setting that avoids the necessity to use a mouse, or a right-click, or something like that.

So, I am working on creating a visual novel using a game engine called Ren'py. This program uses Python to code, and so far I haven't really run into any issues that tinkering(with plenty of saving and judicious use of the 'undo' button) can't solve, but I can't figure out this.

Right now, I am attempting to change the background from the default(solid color image background, title text in another line of code that I can't pinpoint) to a custom one; the custom image will also have the name in it. Therefore, I want to change the background image and remove the code that puts the title text over the background image. I haven't been able to solve it myself, so I thought I'd post here.

After this, the only thing i can click is "OK", which ten terminates the game.

My computer exceeds the minimum requirements, and i've tried rebooting my computer and reinstalling the game. I've also tried scanning the computer viruses or spyware (no viruses, all spyware was corrected) with the up-to-date versions of Spybot SD and Karensky Anti-Virus 6.0. I've checked my hard disk for errors (and then defragmented it), and even disabled all start up programs through msconfig and tried to run empire earth, it still didnt work. my virtual memory is set correctly. All of my video and sound drivers up to date and i have the latest version of DirectX 9c.

I have windows xp with sp 2

My monitor has been working fine for about a year and just started cycling between the Main Menu and OSD Lockout. Nothing has changed or moved, and the temperature where the computers are is fine (borderline cold). This is a HP 1740 and the menus toggle back and forth approximately evern 20 - 30 seconds. Also, other than the area that the menu and OSD diaplay cover everything looks just fine. It does sound like others are having similar issues, so this appears to me to be a design / assembly flaw.

Some graphics cards support "rotation" of the monitor image, and this feature can often be used from the keyboard by pressing a specific key-combination (usually pressing CTRL-ALT-DELETE plus the "down" arrow-key will rotate the image through 180 degrees (upside-down).

To flip it back the right way up, press CTRL-ALT-DELETE plus the "up" arrow key.

There is no other reason I can think of which would cause that behaviour.

Hi. I was cleaning the keyboard, turned it upside down to clean, and all of a sudden the display turned itself upside down. The keyboard wasn't working right, so I changed it to another keyboard, which seems to be doing just fine. But I can't get the display right side up. I did follow a similar thread and learned that the control-alt-arrow key controlled orientation of the display.

I'm investigating an issue which just started happening (Sunday) on a customer's computer.
When they turn it on the display is upside down (also the mouse is reversed). Unfortunately I'm not on site, but I'm having them check their graphics card options etc. (NEC 1545V on WinXP Home (Dell), graphics card unknown at this time assume to be Intel ####)

Tried the Alt-CTL - UP Arrow (on some graphic controllers - Should restore up display),
Tried the Alt-CTL - Down Arrow (on some graphic controllers - Should reverse the display)
Tried Alt-Ctl-F12 to get to Graphics options and turn off rotation.

Any new viruses out there affecting display adapters?

A:Solved: Upside Down Display?!

WE tried and confirmed a couple of things.
1) Ctrl-Alt-F12 - select Rotation Tab and play with the various options (No Change)
2) Ctrl-Alt-Up arrow should change the display to normal (No Change)
Ctrl-Alt-Down arrow should change the display upside down (No Change)
Note the direction of the arrow is the direction the display should be
3) The problem could be with the video card.
Find out what it is:
Click Start / Right-Click "My Computer" / Properties / Choose Hardware
Tab / Choose Device Manager /
Click on "Display Adapters" "+" and record what it is name is there.
Should be something like "Intel #### ###" Graphics Controller
4) Also try this.
Right-Click anywhere on your desktop and choose "Graphic Options"
Choose "Rotation Tab" and disable "Rotation" (uncheck)

5) Microsoft Knowledgebase article

I've got a Compaq C751NR Notebook PC running Windows Vista Home Premium.

While I was using it yesterday, it suddenly froze. I left it to do something else,
with the thought that it would eventually resolve itself. After about ten minutes,
it made a buzzing sound, then the display went blank, and then the display came
back up, with everything on the display being displayed upside-down.

I was playing with it today, and it froze again for a while, but it eventually
became responsive. As the situation stands now, it will not shut down (which is a
problem that I've had before on occasion), and everything is still being displayed

I don't know whether this is a problem with Vista, or the hardware, or both.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
