I just discovered that I can turn my monitor (the actual hardware) vertically but I can't figure out how to set Windows 7 in to a vertical mode too. Any ideas? The monitor is connected to a laptop although I didn't set mirror views. I'm a coder that's why I would like that option. Thanks.

You probably need to download & install the drivers for your particular monitor. My monitors automatically senses when I rotate them, then they adjust accordingly. One monitor is portrait, and the other two are landscape.
Other monitors may need you to right-click on the desktop, then change the screen orientation. You can also go into the control panel, and switch orientation that way.

Visit the official website of your graphics card/GPU manufacturer & look for the latest software drivers.
Also, To avoid possible complications, Uninstall the older drivers before installing the latest drivers.
Once the latest drivers are installed, Look for a monitor orientation setting within the GPU software.

you do it in the software that is associated with your graphics card/GPU.
nvidia-Ntune ATI - Catalyst Control Center
open it and there will be an option to flip display 90 degree's.

right mouse click the desktop on that monitor and it should have a panel for graphics options, mouse over that then mouse over rotation and click whichever one suits the orientation of your monitor.
