Screen rotation does not function with Windows 10!!

Product Name: HP Pavilion x360 13-u104na
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have recently purchased the 2-in-1 HP Pavillion x360 and it updated Window with the latest version 10.

 

The screen rotation has stopped functioning in the tablet mode.

 

I have downloaded and updated the most recent display drivers with no success!

 

Please help me to resolve this issue.

Thank you for replying. I appreciate you taking your valuable time to troubleshoot.

 

Ideally, the registry should not change by itself. You may try to refresh (repair) Windows and then check if the screen rotates in tablet mode. If not then you could perform the registry edit again and then check. Please note that refresh will not delete your data. Though the link offers steps for Win8, the steps are same for Win10 too.

 

Let me know. Thanks again! Smiley Happy

Welcome to HP Support Forums. Smiley Happy I came across your post and would like to help.

 

I understand that you have an HP Pavilion x360 13-u104na and the screen does not rotate in tablet mode.  I appreciate the steps you have performed and have certainly done a good job.

 

I recommend you to perform the following steps from this HP document and check if the screen rotation is disabled. 

 

If the screen still does not rotate in tablet mode then please try the following steps:

  • Win + R -> type 'regedit' and hit Enter

  • Registry editor will open up.

  •  

    Go to path -> HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AutoRotation. Check the value of Enable file if it is 0 rotation will be OFF, if 1 rotation will be ON.

     

  • Restart and Auto rotation will work. 

I sincerely hope this fixes the issue. Keep me posted. Cheers! Smiley Happy

Hi Kazi, I  changed the registry to 1 and rebooted. However the registry reverts to 0. I tried this several times with no success. Do you have any ideas why the registry will not save the default  as 1.
