I was playing an old WW2 game and when my plane crashed
the screen went black so I pressed random keys to try and get
the picture back. when it reappeared the colour was 8 bit but my
main problem is the screen is now at 90 degrees. I am typing
this sideways and my neck is beginning to ache. Please help.

Usually CTRL + ARROW_KEY will turn the screen in the direction of the arrow.

Have you tried rebooting?

EDIT - CRL + ALT + arrow key, in this case the up arrow, will do what you want

This should fix the 8bit colour issue. (Had to link to it as I haven't used windows in a while now ;))

Glad you got your problem fixed, well done Nick on the support. Suggest you dont crash your plane in future :D

I think if you disable the accessability options from control panel this doesn't happen any more, I used to do it as a practical joke and less than 50% of PC's it actually works on.
