    so here is an odd window 7 problem

    Ok so a friend has a dell laptop with windows 7. For some reason the screen gets flipped around and everything is in reverse, ie I move mouse left it goes right. This has happened to him a few times. It is a normal laptop nothing fancy like a flip screen. So any ideas what could be the problem? I am guessing he is impatient and keeps fooling around with something, or he has a virus.

    The problem is probably in the monitor or in the videocard.
