    I have a monitor that pivots.

    Anyone know of any software for OSX that will convert the screen image from landscape to portrait?

    ATI's Displays utility can do this with some ATI graphics chips:

    ...but if you have an NVidia chip or a pretty new Mac, it won't do you any good. I was thinking that there was actually an option in the Pref Pane for some chips, but I could be remembering wrong.

    It's built in to the sys prefs, plug the external monitor in and choose Rotate!

    SysPref Rotate option only if vid card supports rotation. Solutions?

    But apparently only if my graphics cards support rotation. The rotate option doesn't display in my Sys Pref Displays Panel, OS 10.3.9 on a G4 533MHz

    Video cards are both older 32MB:
    GeForce2 MX

    Any solutions for this stuff?
