I have an ATI 3200 MRadeon, graphics card, and I wanted to know if there is any way to horizontally flip, or "mirror" my monitor. Is it possible to do this from within Catalyst Control Center (Ati's settings program) or is there a third party software I would be able to use to achieve this?

There should be a rotation setting in the Catalyst driver or software. You may need to enable an "advanced" mode in order to view e setting but there should be an option rotate 90 degrees.

I think Sean meant flipping the screen literally as in a mirror, so that text goes from right to left and all... –  Cerberus Jan 14 '11 at 3:34
    
Yes, Cerberus is correct: not, rotate, but flip. I am trying to set up this cheapy little DIY projector, and all the words are backwards and upside down. I flipped the Monitor 180°, but the words are still backwards. –  Sean Jan 14 '11 at 3:35
    
It looks like there is an Nvidia program called NVKeystone, nvidia.com/object/feature_nvkeystone.html, that will do it. You can see it in action in the video linked here: diyprojectorkits.com/beginners-area/… Still looking for a comparable ATI solution. –  peroty Jan 14 '11 at 4:28
    
khaid.drue.us/mirror/pvcmirror.zip I found this here: journal.pcvsconsole.com/?thread=7650 I downloaded it and it worked on my laptop running Windows 7. To cancel it, just open task manager and close the pvc mirror program. It works for me but I guarantee nothing. Good luck! –  peroty Jan 14 '11 at 4:38
    
hmm.. When you tried moving the mouse around or anything, did it just disappear for you, because that is what is happening to me? –  Sean Jan 14 '11 at 4:43

DeskMirror mirrors (reflects/reverses) half of your display onto the other half.

You can play with its options to fit your needs (I didn't try 2 monitors enabled, just installed and it works).
