why does the screen on my laptop keep on turning sideways is

This answer was rated:

why does the screen on my laptop keep on turning sideways is this a software fault or is it the kids messing. thanks

This occurs when the screen rotation hotkeys, i.e. Ctrl + Alt + Arrow keys, are pressed; in order to rotate the screen back to its default position, please press the Ctrl + Alt + Up Arrow keys accordingly.

If you want to disable this feature altogether, please go to your Control Panel > Display > Settings > Advanced, then click on the tab for your graphics/video driver, and use the option present to disable the rotation hotkeys.

Hope it helps.
