How in the hell do you fix this?

BIOS and everything else outside of windows looks like this, and my neck is starting to hurt.

You'll need to swap the middle screen cable with the one on the left and then sort out your screen settings in windows.... Unless it's in windows you can't change the screen orientation.

He's turned the screen 90 degrees already by the looks of it.

In Windows it's fine. And cable swapping isn't an option, as the center monitor is connected via DP and the other two only support DVI or VGA.

What I mean is once you swap the cables, you'll need to sort out the screen layout again, all the time that monitor isn't connected to your primary output on your GPU's it won't display correctly and there isn't anything you can do to make it change orientation.

The only option you really have is to check the monitor settings and see if you can rotate it on the monitor hardware rather than the windows OS, but that could end up screwing up the windows orientation.

The monitor can't do anything fancy like that unfortunately :/

Though I did always wonder why is it that when a monitor comes with a rotating stand, why doesn't the stand connect via USB or something and let Windows know when you rotate it? Tablet PCs do it, there's no reason desktop monitors can't. And it would be nice.


Anyway...

Do you know if the GTX680 supports output using DVI+DVI+HDMI simultanously? If so maybe I can try getting a hold of a mini HDMI cable and connecting a side monitor there, freeing up a DVI port for the 30".

Tablet PCs likely have an accelerometer inside whereas a regular desktop monitor does not.

I think compuman meant that you have to change the desktop arrangement/orientation settings in Windows Display Panel/Nvidia Control Panel.

Yes,

I think an accelerometer is a bit high tech, it's probably just a switch, lol

You are right btw, that was the arrangement i meant
