Auto-rotate missing

HP Recommended
HP Stream 7
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

I bought a Stream 7 tablet a few years ago which came with Windows 8. When Windows 10 came out I upgraded and it was working fine up through v1703.

 

When I updated to v1709 the display was upside down. Whichever way I had pointed up, the display was upside down. I could not find any way to correct that. I could lock it by disabling auto-rotate but that was all.

 

So I rolled back to 1709 and all was well. I tried updating to 1709 3 times and each time had to roll back to 1703 to correct the display being upside down.

 

Then I decided to do a Windows 10 reset. That seemed to go well but now auto-rotate is missing completely. I can manually switch the display between Portrait and Landscape in the Display setting but the auto-rotate function is MIA. No button anywhere, nothing.

 

Any idea what I can do to restore the auto-rotate function? I use it in Landscape mode most of the time anyway so locking it in that mode isn't too bad. But it sure would be nice to have the rotation back.

 

Thanks,

Jonathan

Apply all Windows 10 drivers from the hp.com site including the Intel chipset driver and Kionix driver if you have not already.  Also make sure the BIOS firmware is updated.

Thanks for the suggestion. I thought I had reinstalled them but apparently had missed the Kionix one. I reinstalled that and now autorotation is back. Still not showing up in the Action Center but now it does in the Display Settings and display rotation actually works.

 

Thanks for the help!
