HP Mini display sideways

The Ctrl+Alt+Arrow key combination doesn't correct the sideways (portrait, versus the normal horizontal) display issue. My daughter was cleaning her keyboard and pushed some combination of keys which made the display rotate 90 degrees.

Any idea how I may correct this?

right click on empty area on desktop and look for a rotate 90 degrees selection.  Remember to move the mouse the opposite way while selecting option, until back to normal

That is correct.  If it is Intel driver (which I suspect it is being an HP), right-click and look for "Graphics Properties".  The "Display Settings" option will allow you to change it back.  You can also disable rotation from here to avoid accidents like this.

You can also get there by right-clicking and choosing Properties.  In that dialog box click on the Settings Tab - look for the "Advanced" button towards the bottom.  The Intel Graphics Media Accelerator Driver for Mobile tab will have the Graphics Properties button there.
