    I'm running an early 2008 iMac with a 17" Dell LCD rotated 90 degrees. It works perfectly on the Mac side, but I can't find any rotation controls in Windows. With some Googling around, I've determined that I need to install Catalyst in order to get this functionality. Unfortunately, Catalyst just tells me I don't have a supported graphics card (Mobility Radeon HD 2600).

    Any suggestions for how to get this monitor rotated or Catalyst installed? I've attached a picture of my setup. It's the display on the right that I'm trying to get sorted.

    I'm still trying to get this one worked out. Any ideas?

    Sorry, but I think rotation is handled by the GPU vendor's control panel.

    I'm surprised the ATI one isn't included with Bootcamp. I know that the nvidia one installs on my machine. I run one of my 24" monitors in portrait, so I've looked into it before.

    Look for a 3rd party app that has more control over the graphics card. I bet there's one out there.
