Try changing your desktop resolutions. – karthick87 Jan 3 '11 at 12:00
you can change the rotation of the screen by going to the Monitor settings – Uri Herrera Jan 3 '11 at 12:02

To change your desktop rotation, open up Monitors settings, and you should see a window that looks like this.

From there you can change your rotation.
