    Wow.

    That IS a problem.

    Okay...first, how long ago?

    Second, what operating system?

    If XP, you can go Start> Programs> Accessories> System Tools> System Restore and roll it back to a previous time where it worked bass forwards...

    What was the last thing you did while it was OK? Didja loan it to a kid or something?!

    Anyhow, good luck, and let me know what's what.

    You give almost no usable information. No Operating System details, no video driver details, no monitor details.

    Chances are that:

    1) You have an LCD that can rotate, and someone rotated it on you, although you might be sharp enough to notice that it's now taller than it used to be.

    2) The video driver has a rotate feature that has been turned on. Poke around in the display properties.

    3) Maybe you should install Firefox, all the Firefox Nazi's around here seem to think that it's the end-all to computer problems. :)
