Does it also happen with another display?

Yes, also what type of video card?  Some newer video adapters provide this feature for LCD-type (thin) monitors, so you can mount them sideways, on walls, etc..  There may be an option in you Display Properties> Settings under the Advanced tab.  Hard to be sure though without the adapter model.

Ok I have fixed the problem by the following:

Within Windows XP, certain video drivers or graphics card chipsets supporting 180 degree screen rotation can cause the Windows XP display to be presented upside down. This can be (but is not always) tied to lowering the screen resolution in some accessibility programs.

To revert to a right-side up display, hold down the CTRL, ALT and UP (arrow) keys

the holding CTRL + ALT and UP arrow keys fixed it

there is also this article from Microsoft:
