My screen broke and so I had it replaced. Now that I got my laptop back, I cannot get the tablet mode to work on its own. For example, when folding the laptop, the keyboard and mouse are supposed to be disabled automatically after the system detects the orientation has changed. This does not happen.
I am 100% positive this is not a software issue and just want to know what parts I need to replace that will fix this issue. Is there a gyro / accelerometer chip that I can replace? If so, please let me know the location of this part, the part number, so I can replace it. Please let me know what hardware component this issue is related to.
Please I respectfully ask that you do not provide any software related responses - This issue is not related to software. I also am unable to get a hold of ANY of your support team because your portal does not even give me the option. So please, stand by your product and let me know what the actual part number is for this gyro / allerometer chip is so I can have this ordered and installed. Thank you

I made it so clear in my original post that this is NOT related to software. Can you PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE JUST tell me the part that is in charge of the screen rotation so I know what part I need to PURCHASE from you please? It is NOT software. IT is NOT software. It's not a setting. It's not the OS. It is the HARDWARE and I just want to know what the part number is so I know what to order. This is so frustrating, I feel like I need to let everyone know on social media how incredibly infuriating this has been!

You may order the replacement parts on the HP Parts Store, use the HP Parts Surfer to find the part number and If you've already looked for it and couldn't find it on the HP Parts Store, you may want to get it locally at the online store such as Amazon or eBay, etc...as the part numbers are universal.
Alternatively, I suggest you talk to HP support and discuss your options, follow the below steps to get started:
1) Click on this link.
2) Click on Sign-in or select the product using the below step:
3) Enter the serial of your device.
4) Select the country from the drop-down.
5) Click on "Show Options". Fill the web-form, to populate a case number and phone number for yourself!
Also, if you are having trouble navigating through the above options, it's most likely because the device is out of warranty, if yes? please send me a private message with the region you are contacting us from, here's how private messages work: Click here for details.
Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
