  • Mounting my LCD Upside down

    I'm planning on mounting my lilliput upside down (for cosmetic reasons

    My display drivers do not have a built in utility for rotations...I know there are some utilities out there, infact one even comes with the lcd touchpad drivers. Unfortunately its for ATI and Nvidia drivers and my carpc is sis.

    Anyone know of a simple utility to acomplish this for me?

    tnx

    why you turning it upside down? are you taking it out of the case? if not, you could just turn the lcd itself upside down inside the case, could work. get out your dremel for the holes on the other side. also, i think, powerstrip might do this in software somehow

      The lilliput has a 'bulge' on the bottom which causes the lcd to lean inward rather than outward (pointing down). I was planning on using the casing and just using the mounting bracket that is included on the back of the lcd...

      Sound like a good idea or do you think i should take the casing off or what?

        I would try to physically flip the lcd in the casing, so down is actually up.

          my sentiments exactly. I'm not sure if you're going to stick it on the roof ryguy or what. but if the actual plastic case the lcd and touchscreen are in is going to be upside down, turn the lcd and TS upside down in the case. You may be able to turn the backside of the case upside down with them and still have the screw holes line up, and the monitor's plugs line up correctly in the back. submit a pic or two and we'll see what more we can do

            I want to put it in my dash...but the way the dashboard is made it doesn't sit right without it being upside down. Now if i flip it upside down, do i need to cut new holes for the buttons? Or can i just leave the case off?

              Anyone have any suggestions for flipping the display upside down? I know the lilliput touchscreen utility comes with a utility to do this, however it only supports nvida and ati. Any other suggestions? tnx

                I have done that with my lilliput
                I use a software called Pivot to rotate picture 180 deg.

                It's a trialware (but I can help you with that if you like it)

                    I guess then my video in would be upside down too...if i ever decided i wanted to use it. Is there a way to just rotate the screen and not the buttons? or is it all attached?
