    Maybe, a new laptop will solve the problem or send it in for repair.

    Depending on the video card manufacturer installed into your machine there
    may be differing ways to rotate your display. Try this one (NVidia) - Right
    click on blank area of desktop. Click Nvidia control panel. Under Rotate
    display select the proper display setting.

    For other display manufacturers they also will have some way in their driver
    settings to change the display. Some use key stroke combinations to change
    the display.

    For at least some thinkpads, the magic combination is (ctrl + alt) and an
    arrow key. Whichever direction the arrow is pointing will become the "top"
    of the rotated screen.

    Makes for an easy practical joke...
