Lenovo Thinkpad problem with the display

It seemed to happen when I was trying to type out a character using the Ascii code number. Instead of holding down Alt and typing 156 I held down Alt Gr. That was the last thing I think I did when it turned. I remember from years ago there was a 3 or 4 button routine that would turn the image upside down on the screen but I can't remember that either. But, AS WELL lol, the touchbad has stayed the same !!!. So now down = left, up = right, left = up and right = down.

 

thanks

Re: Lenovo Thinkpad problem with the display

Erm ... appreciate if you can let us know the ThinkPad model which you are using so the community would could test it if they are having the similar model.

Also which button is Alt Gr? Try going into Intel Display control panel to swap the display, if I remember correctly there is an option there to swap the display back to normal.

I have a Y2P (i5) ... Feel free to ping me if you want me to test some applications with your Y2P if you have the same model. I don't mind keep doing recovery on it if needed .... =)

Re: Lenovo Thinkpad problem with the display

Ctrl+Alt and an arrow key will rotate the screen.
