Sounds like you found the right dialog - it is terse.  The options
correspond to xrandr config for your displays.  Quick explanation:

- The drop down in the upper left selects which output to configure.
- The middle pane lists supported modes.
- The upper right (0,90,180,270) sets screen rotation.
- Below that, the On checkbox enables/disables the screen.
- Below that are priority and layout controls.

When you checked 90, you enabled 90 degree rotation for one screen.

This should clear out all of your screen config, hopefully allowing you
to start E again:
 rm ~/.e/e/config/standard/e_randr*.cfg
