its a pavilion DV9600 ca entertainment pc
itried to isolate the problem by opening the screen and detaching it to see if the hinges had anything to do with the problem it is the screen itself that causes the issue.
until windows logs in appears the screen has to be fully opened then you can change the position and everything is fine.
i though of a possible mercury switch that would tel the position of the screen but found none , what is part of the screen that would detect its position i wounder
