    well, i'd assume the laptop has a sensing mechanism to determine up and
    down...like a tablet-pc would..

    and, i'd shut it down and then when rebooting i'd have it sitting level
    with the bottom of the screen DOWN (unlike that quoted above)..

    try it, and let us know how that worked out for you..

    i am, therefore, out of ideas..

    have you contacted Acer for help?? or, (i don't recall, and can't find
    your initial posting...which i do NOT believe was in this [applications]
    forum, as is this posting...FORUM ADMIN, why is that so...why is this
    posting all alone, without a spawning thread, on NNTP??)

    anyway, it is either a hardware OR a software issue: are you certain it
    is a software/linux problem....that is, can you boot another OS and see
    if it gets magically fixed??

    what happens if you boot a live CD....have you tried Knoppix

    When a thread is placed in the wrong section and a staff member moves
    it, it breaks the threading in NNTP and therefore you will end up
    missing the original posts.

    ps (up front) this is intended to be a possibly helpful and certainly
    friendly suggestion:

    back in the dark ages when NNTP was the only game in town i'm pretty
    sure it WAS possible to move entire threads from one spot to another
    (AND, keep the threading intact)..

    have we made so much 'progress' that that is now impossible?? i really
    doubt it..

    _perhaps_ breaking NNTP threading when moving a wrongly placed post is a
    forum software limitation; or a forum administration software
    limitation; either of which could/should be fixed..

    and, if staff are gonna decide where posts should be placed, then i
    suggest they also decide what the subject should have been, and change
    those too (_without_ breaking the thread)..

    or, maybe it would be better to have the staff decide where a post
    should be _and_ what the subject should be *before* the initial post is
    actually submitted to the forum.....and, during that time the user could
    edit and/or withdraw it.......but, once ON the forum it stays where it
    belongs, has a valid (useful) subject line and can't be changed..

    just my 4 cents, ymmv, DenverD

    Well, thanks a lot for trying to help, I appreciate that.Its good to know theres people out there spending their time trying to help put COMPLETE strangers. I came home from a 12 hour shift and hey guess what, its back to normal. Very odd. ALso, it was working fine on windows, just not on suse. The computer might of had sensed it I guess that it was sideways. Either way, thanks again and this thread is done!
