I unboxed my computer today and noticed that the screen does not rotate and that the rotation lock is greyed out.
I have read through numerous posts and questions regarding this issue by now and found no solution that works. I am quite flabbergasted that the issue seems to have persisted for 4-5 years now.
My computer is brand new and yet I cannot get it allow the screen to rotate. Not only does it not recognize when i fold my computer over but even when I manually go to press tablet mode i cannot press screen rotation. The screen rotation button in the action center is greyed out so I cannot press it at all.
The machine is a HP ENVY x360 13-ay0008na Convertible Laptop 2020 Edition
