    My boyfriends son was on the computer playing on some game and he's 5 so doesnt really know what he is supposed to be pressing on the game he was playing on and I walked back into the room and he was pressing 'up' 'down' and something else now my screen has turned upside down and right now I am typing upside down!
    When you move the mouse up, it goes down and vice versa.

    How can I change it back?!?!?!!?

    Try resetting the screen. There should be a menu on the screen. i.e. buttons on the monitor

    Alt Control + the up arrow

    Edit: IF that doesn't work.... Go on your desktop and right click , go to properties, settings and then look for a tickbox that says rotation. Although my first idea is the most likely to work if you say he was in a game. it could be ALT + CONTROL + a different direction though... try up first

    in the advanced video controls (control panel--> display properties), you can rotate it 180 degrees. Or click on back to normal or any other angle depending on the rotation now

    Upside down again! Pressing Alt Ctrl and right or down works, just not up

    Go to control panel, display, settings, advanced, then check around there, should be a rotation option. Have you tried ALT control + all the different directions?

    I'm pretty sure you don't lose your files, it's only the settings that change and a few other things.

    yeh, i'll vouch for that. you don't lose any files, just things you may have installed etc become uninstalled and other little system file bits and bobs.
