I have an Intel GMA4500 chipset, and in the graphics options it lets me choose the rotation. But it immediately reverts back to "None" I have updated the drivers from Intel's site but still no-go. Is there any clever hacks of software that can let me do this?

I'm on Win7 64-bit

Can you just do it from the Windows display settings? Right-click on the desktop, choose "Screen Resolution", and under "Orientation", choose "Portrait" to flip the display.

change display orientation

No, it just acts the same. – YAS Mar 7 '11 at 7:12
How immediately? Are you sure you're not missing a confirm box or something? – nhinkle Mar 7 '11 at 7:47
Immediately. I'd hit apply the screen would flicker (1/8th of a sec?) like it does when you rotate or change resolution and then there'd be no confirmation box and the rotation says "None" – YAS Mar 7 '11 at 14:10
