Rotate the display, independant of the video card driver?

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by Homer J. Simpson, Dec 31, 2007.

  1. Hi all,

    I realize that display rotation is typically a function of the video card
    driver, but I'm wondering if there's any software solution that can do that
    independantly of the card...

    I understand that it would probably be *way* slower than a native driver,
    but I could live with that--the rotated monitor would typically only be
    needed to display the content of a couple of windows from Visual Studio
    (there's a couple of windows that could use all the vertical space they can
    get), so even something with a slow refresh would be perfectly acceptable.
