    Sideways screen and wierd mouse pad??

    So here's this odd problem...

    I have a Dell Inspiron 1318 and this is actually two problems..

    First one that the screen was sideways and i'm assuming 800x600 resolution which barely portrays half of the screen...sideways too.

    I fixed the sideways with ctrl + Alt + up directional key

    but the resolution is funky still, now this would be easily fixed except when i use the mousepad...

    it only goes so far down...and so far to the right.

    It stops at like the bottom toolbar [not allowing me to click start]

    and stops about halfway in the screen going right, and alot of the stuff i click won't work...like it doesn't even know it's there kinda thing.

    Please tell me what i can do to fix this...i already don't have internet on it so if i can't fix this there's no point.

    Check DPI
    DPI Scaling

    Go to search type device manager
    in Manager make sure there are no yellow warning markers

    Make sure graphics drivers are up to date.
