I have pavilion x360 was working fine, it felt down and hit the left side. Now I'm facing an issue where the pc sense as its in tablet mode and disables my touchpad and keyboard as soon as the OS finishes to load.
Keyboard and touchpad works fine in bios all the time.
I thought it was keyboard drivers issues but its not.
I wanted to open the PC and reassemble everything but I'm afraid.
For the meantime I want to disable the sensor that detects and tells the OS that the PC is converted to tablets mode.
I have done all the suggestion from this community and nothing works. I just want to disable the sensor, please help

I'm happy you replied, but sorry not to mention, I have disable all the tablet option as you've described. It didn't work then neither now.
So what it happens is that as some point it work but if I close the lip or move the PC it starts converts to tablet mode back and forth, like blinking and it stop working if I slightly hit it.
And the tablet mode it goes, is different from the option the OS offers. Everything stays the same as desktop mode, but the taskbar icons expand as they make more hand friendly to work with.
I have recorded the situation with backlit ON so you can clearly see the blinking as well as the taskbar icons, if possible I can send that to you
Model: hp pavilion x360 convertible 14-dh1xxx
