Screen Flip Error

I have a dell PC about 5 years old and i was selecting a few objects in a folder and was holding shift or alt or ctrl down on the keyboard with the down arrow (trying to select all items) when all of a sudden the screen flipped on me...is it something that i pressed or is it a virus or something?...thanks

it should indeed be ctrl+alt+the up arrow to correct it (maybe down arrow).  Ensure it's ctrl+alt from left hand side of keyboard.  I beleive it's a graphics chipset program that catches the key combo, so you may also be able to change it from an icon in the system-tray

exactly how do you do that from the system-tray...where do you find it?

It will probably be a little Intel chipset icon ( i believe ) but the exact icon would depend on the motherboard+drivers, so if it's not obvious it could have been disabled, or just not there for your PC hardware
