HP ENVY Smart Touch screen upside down

Somehow, I hit a few buttons and now my screen on my laptop is backwards. How to switch this back?


Will, achieve, welcome to the forum.

You have to press on and hold down Ctrl + Alt while you press the arrow pointing upwards.  This should toggle your screen to the correct orientation.

  • HP Envy 120: Touch screen does not show. Buttons on the front are unresponsive.

    The touch screen does not appear or appears with vertical bands of color. Power switch; WiFi; Open on the front buttons do not work. It will be printed from the computer and printed the test page. After it printed the test page, it stops and will not respond to the buttons on the front, but will always show from the computer. I unplugged and plugged back in after waiting for 30 seconds.

    If it is not under warranty take it. Buy something else.

  • HP Envy: HP ENVY printer range: duplex upside down

    I tried things print double-sided and no matter what I do to change the preferences, the second page is always upside down. Is it possible I can return the last pages 180 degrees? I tried looking for a box that says "page flip up", but I don't think that there is a button for this. I also tried printing the pages on the long side and the short side, but both options print the pages back backwards.


    Thanks for getting back to me. Could you try to launch the print and Scan Doctor?

    This diagnostic tool will check for all conflicts that may be causing the problem. The tool will show you a report at the end. If there is a problem that the tool could not fix, you will notice it in the results.

    Please send me the results of running the tool. I'm curious to know if there is a problem with the driver.

    Thank you

  • HP Envy 15 "touch screen power LED appears, but the fans does not and the screen does not light


    I'm a student in computer engineering at the University of Waterloo 1A, and I run a very serious problem with my HP Envy 15 "TouchSmart laptop computer running Windows 8.1. It is a problem that just started today, and I'd rather have a first support here before going to see the technical support Office sometimes tomorrow. It has to do with the screen and the fans where the Power LED lights in white, just as when the laptop works properly.

    (I have warranty on the laptop when it was purchased last June, except that if I find that I need to get a replacement, I'll lose all my work, I did on that since I started my semester.) It's so silly of me not to have all my work saved on a backup, because I have an external hard drive. Problem is, I've had too many problems in getting myself organized, I'm not being open-minded as I should, and worse, I'm not a balance between life and work at home.)

    Before I had my MATH 117 conference (Calculus 1 Engineering), I was in a nearby lab where my laptop was open and turned, works correctly. I've had NetBeans IDE running since I wanted to work on the second part of my current assignment of CS 137 (principles of programming). Because it was almost time for my presentation, I closed the laptop by simply moving the screen down on the keyboard, where it goes into mode 'sleep'. (Whenever I flip to the top of the screen, the laptop is supposed to return, and the sliding screen of Windows 8.1 connection will appear.)

    When I took my seat for reading, I wanted to spend a little time to work on my programming assignment. However, after the reversal of the screen to the top, instead of having the login screen appears, I encountered the problem: the power supply light is showing a white light, but I don't hear the fans between the ventilation openings on the left side of the laptop and the screen does not light. I tried to take the power for several seconds and once button at least 10 seconds, except that the power light continues to display on a white light. The Commission of the Wi - Fi light is not displayed.

    Whatever it is, I don't want to take out the battery because I have that on my last laptop, and it's from there that I couldn't turn to the former, a new market. If I leave the Envy laptop battery, it will short-circuit the connections between the battery and the computer, and so several components will FRY. For now, what I do let the laptop is to empty the load on the battery. Then, once I noticed that the power light does not project a white light, or plug in the AC adapter and try turning the laptop on the power button.

    It will take a little while for the circuit drain the load on my battery but...

    Anyway, please would you be kind enough to help me with this problem? I would really appreciate if you can give me several recommendations. Thank you!

  • The screen upside - down Satellite A110

    I bought a Satellite A110-159 and I am very happy with it so far, but happened Friday last something weird. After coming out of hibernation, my laptopscreen was backwards. I could have pressed some keys before that happened, but if so, I so unconsiously made I do not remember. Could you please help me in this problem because it is not ideal to work on it;).

    You certainly pressed accidentally a few keys that would change the position of the screen of laptop computers.

    The combination of keys depends on the graphics card that is installed in the laptop.
    It seems that the Satellite A110-159 has been delivered with the Intel GPU.

    In this case, you should check if you can change the screen using the combination like CTRL + ALT and upward or to the LEFT or DOWN or RIGHT

    Usually the display position can also be changed in the properties of the graphics card-> some where in the settings advanced

  • Monitor screen upside down

    All carrying my motorized mobile under my arm, I inadvertently you press a combination of keys that caused my screen to rotate 180 degrees. How can I reverse the screen.


    Seems that you have accidentally changed the orientation of the screen. Fortunately, there's a handy shortcut for this problem.
    Each of the different arrow keys directs the screen in a different direction when you press on in combination with the keys alt ctrl +.
    Press ctrl & alt together (on the physical keyboard) keys while pressing the up arrow (ctrl + alt + arrow up) key.
    Unlock all keys and your screen should now be correctly oriented.
