How can I invert the screen on Windows XP? Not rotate, but flip/invert horizontally? I want the text, and everything else on the screen, to go from right to left.

Is this about a prank? :-) – Adrian Grigore Aug 29 '09 at 9:26
Its not a prank. I need it. – Viaceslav D. Aug 29 '09 at 9:30
Could you please explain why you need something like this? Other users might have a better way to achieve the same result, something you haven't thought of? – EvilChookie Sep 10 '09 at 19:22

Try using the video card drivers. I've used this option from the nVidia and Intel video cards settings, but they're different from one manufacturer to the other.

Edit: for an nVidia card you could try NVRotate (it should come with the video card driver). If this doesn't work, just try iRotate; it's a free, very small (125KB) app that does what you need.

Really? what video card do you have? – alex Aug 29 '09 at 9:31
GeForce 8800 GT – Viaceslav D. Aug 29 '09 at 9:35
Try the suggestion made in my edit. Hope this actually helps :) – alex Aug 29 '09 at 10:27
@alex: you did not get the question. Its not working with iRotate. We use to flip the screen, and then we use a mirror for News channels. In Linux we can do it but with Windows its being for a while impossible. Can you please clarify the question and post some reliable answer? – YumYumYum Sep 15 '14 at 17:45

Ctrl-Alt-[Up Arrow], if your video card supports it.
