Right click a clear area on the desktop and select 'Screen Resolution', look at the dropdown box labelled 'Orientation' and ensure it is set to 'Landscape'. Click 'Apply' and 'OK'.

The alternative is to use Ctrl, Alt and up arrow at the same time. I suspect that someone has been playing the same trick that childish people use in stores with computers on display. Often they are seen with inverted or sideways on screens.
