Howdy,

So I picked up a Dell U2713HM Display and would like to rotate the monitor vertically. Any ideas on how I can accomplish this?

My Setup:
15" Mid 2012 Macbook Pro, NVIDIA 650M 512MB Mac OSX v10.8.3

I've tried:
System Preferences -> Displays -> and theres nothing there. If I hold down option it just says Detect Display

DELL U2713HM:
Resolution: 2560 x 1440 @ 60 Hz
Pixel Depth: 32-Bit Color (ARGB8888)
Main Display: Yes
Mirror: Off
Online: Yes
Rotation: Supported
Connection Type: DisplayPort
Television: Yes


I've also tried,
"I managed to fix my issue by removing the /Library/Preferences/com.apple.windowserver.plist and restarting. On restart the displays were redetected and rotation started working correctly again"
from: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4354987

but I can't seem to find com.apple.windowserver.plist in my library folder...

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Alex

in system preferences>displays, make sure you are looking at the window for the external monitor
