    Hi all,

    I was wondering if there was any way to force the rotation of a display on a GMA950 computer? If I hold any of the modifier keys when I enter the Display preference pane, it does not give me the option, although I know for a fact that the video card can do it, as it works fine in Windows. Does anyone know of a 3rd party app that might do this?

    GMA950 is not a "computer" its an intel graphics card.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel_GMA#GMA_950
    The GMA 950 is Intel's second-generation Graphics Media Accelerator graphics core, which was also referred by Intel as 'Gen 3.5 Integrated Graphics Engine' in datasheets. It is used in the Intel 940GML, 945G, 945GU and 945GT system chipsets.

    I know, I'm not stupid. If I had said an "NVidia Computer," one could have construed from my meaning that I implied a graphics card.

    Either way, I obviously know how to rotate the screen. My display does NOT have this option from within System Preferences, but it rotates just fine in Windows XP. Therefore, it is obviously a Mac OS X only issue with getting the screen rotated. I was asking if anyone knew how to FORCE the screen to be rotated, not how to rotate them in general.
