Go in to the video card properties and set the rotation to normal. Depending on the video card you might have to select rotate a few times until it is back to normal. This could also be a monitor setting. Check the video card properties.

Also try holding down CTRL+ALT and pressing the down arrow key. This is another way of rotating the screen depending on your video card setting.

Free Tool: Port Scanner

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

If video card settings do not work

this can be accomplished by hotkeys in XP:
for normal windows : Ctrl + Alt + <Up arrow>
and for 180 deg it is : Ctrl + Alt + <Down arrow>

In Windows 7

Go to Display Settings panel and then switch the orientation

Have you tried to boot into safemode to see if this issue still exists?
