desktop/display is sideways--HELP!

I was reading a book when it accidentally dropped on the keyboard and it pressed some keys and after that the display/desktop went sideways? Now the top of the screen is now on the left, bottom of screen is now on the right. The pc works properly, but I am not able to find anything in XP tools/help to solve it. I am thinking there is a magic combo of keys that I can press to solve this? Any ideas? Thanks.

You just need to press the key combination of CTRL+ALT+ARROW Keys on the keyboard. Report back if its not working.

You can always try to put your monitor sideways if you would like.
