I have a problem with my Spectre X360 laptop. Exact model 13-4109no.
If I fold the screen to tent or tablet mode, nothing happens. Tablet mode will not be enabled and keyboard will not turn off, which basically makes the mode completely unusable. Also if I manually activate tablet mode screen will not rotate and keyboard still stays enabled.
I have tried to install latest drivers a few times, didn't do anything good. BIOS is also the latest version.
So, any suggestions?

First of all, thanks. The Intel Sensor Solution driver (ver. 188.8.131.5236 Rev.A) mentioned on the last page of that post fixed the issue for me completely.
But, it's the old version of the driver. I downloaded the latest version (ver. 184.108.40.20657 Rev.A) of that same driver before from HP support page and installing that version completely broke all of the tablet functions of my laptop: tablet mode wouldn't enable and all sensors like accelerometer and gyroscope would stop working completely.
So, it seems that the latest version is somehow faulty, and in my opinion it shouldn't be available as the recommended latest version if it doesn't at all work as intended.
But anyways, my problem got solved and I'm happy for that, so thank you.

I had the same problem and was told to ship the unit back to HP for repairs as the Gyro was faulty. Thsi was on the 1st of Feb. I hve now been informed that the unit cannot be repired till the 23rd of Feb as the part has i snot available and has to be ordered.
I bought the Spectre in Aug last year and have had multiple problem witht it since then requiring multiple resets over the last 6 months. HP Customer service refuses to replace the fauty machine using a wierd logic ..that UK law doesnt allow it to do so as teh fault wasnt reporte dwithi 30 days. Can some one advise what I should do? I am without a working laptop for 3 weeks!
