Portege M750 with Windows 7 - Screen Rotation Button not working correctly

Question: Portege M750 with Windows 7 - Screen Rotation Button not working correctly

I have installed Windows 7 afresh on a Portege M750 and everything seems fine except the buttons on the display to handle tablet functions. The only one I really would like to work is the screen orientation one. I've looked for drivers, but can't find any that will control the tablet buttons. I read that for the M700 you need to download the tablet driver as it contains the drivers for the buttons, but no such driver exists for the M750.

All devices are ok in device manager with none requiring drivers.

Any ideas/thoughts/suggestions are very welcome.

I have a Portege M700 and when I turn it into tablet mode the rotation button quits working.
It works when it in laptop mode.

I have the rotation utility set to go into secondary landscape and its no longer switching and the button on the front of the screen will not switch it anymore either.
I can go into the rotation software and rotate it manually.

Any suggestions on how to get the button functioning again?

Oh and I am running Vista Business with SP 2.

Any help would be appreciated.

About a week ago, I turned the screen to set it into tablet mode and noticed that the screen did not rotate 90 degrees automatically like it normally does.

I then pressed the screen rotation button so that it would automatically adjust to the orientation that the notebook was in. This had no effect.

I was able to rotate the screen manually by going into the graphics properties and can set hotkeys to manually rotate the screen, but it is no longer adjusting automatically. I've ran the toshiba rotation utility manually, but it doesn't seem to have an effect either.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Answer:Portege M400 - Screen rotation utility not working

Answer:Portege M 200 Tablet rotation button doesn't work on Vista


I had the same problem on the M200 and now onthe M400.
My solution was to install the Intel Supplied Drivers. With those drivers the rotation is made with CTRL+ALT+ARROW (Up Arrow to point up, Right Arrow to point right, etc).

Good luck!

The other question : even if it's not multitouch capable, is it still possible to have panning somehow ? (scroll the windows with the finger).
You don't need two fingers to have this fonctionnality.

I have installed win7 64 bit ("fresh install" on my M750-129) and i have also downloaded and installed all the newest drivers from toshiba website.
the device manager shows no problem / drivers needed, and trhings like HDD protection work well.

However, i have four groups of problems i would love and appreciate to find answer:

1) when i change the screen position to tablet, it does not change the orientation nor the resolution.
There is no utility to set the desired orientations of screen as it was in vista (horribly unstable and slow OS, though).
This, naturally, is diminishing the usefullness of the tablet finction

2) the buttons do not work properly; the screen rotation button starts excel (!!) , the centre of mobility button starts word (!!), and the toshiba assistance button does not work at all

3) fingerprints: the fingerprint utility lets me to screen my fingerprint, asks if it should save it, and than says "saving impossible; another duplicate pattern exists" which i completely do not understand what it means...

4) some applications are not available at all after fresh install: face recognition, DVD player, bussines card screener - but i can love without those; 1-3 worries me much much more and i would appreciate any functional help. thanx on advance for any try!

Answer:Portege M750 tablet, buttons and fingerprint functions not working in win7


I think you would need an extension package in order to use the tablet functions on the Portege series.
I didn?t find the Tablet PC Extension Package for Win 7 but there is an package for Win Vista.

Usually many tools and drivers which were released for Vista would work with Win 7.
So in my opinion you should try to install additionally this Tablet PC Extension Package.
I think this should solve the issue with the buttons too!

Regarding the fingerprint;
I think the message means that an fingerprint was already registered and therefore an second save is not possible.
Check if you can delete other fingerprints?

just wanted to leave a message with the solutions I found for different applications for Portege M750.
These are the applications I use the most,
so if you need other drivers/applications just leave a reply and I'll try to find it.

_Got working:_
Bluetooth and 3G driver and therefore the GPS ( [Toshiba Europe|] )
Screen Buttons, except the Toshiba Assist and Presentation button.
Both opens this: [Buttons| f=1] ,

Which I find more useful then the old functions.
Installed Value Added Package, I think from here: [Go to download section| d=2266999&os=&ct=SB&selFamily=1073768662] . The one from europe site didn't worked.

FingerPrint utility.
Control Panel -> User Accounts and Family Safety -> User Accounts and you have an option in the left side of the window for fingerprints. Installed the drivers and programs, works like a charm. Or search on google for TrueSuite

For the ctrl+al+arrow to flip the screen, I used iRotate (google it).

Still no solution for the HDD protection utility, yet.

Answer:Portege M750 PPM75E Windows 8 drivers - SOLUTION

Many Win7 drivers would work with Win 8 system.

I have a Portege M750 notebook that had Vista business on it.
I removed vista and installed the windows 7 RC

Now i have received the final windows 7 vista upgrade but can't install over Win7rc or stand alone as it needs to have vista first.
I dont have a vista cd for the notebook as it only came with windows xp cds for some reason.

The recovery partition was removed when win7 rc was installed
I am currently downloading a vista torrent that should work but is a few hours away

Was wondering if there is any other option to get the windows 7 upgrade to install

Answer:Portege M750 - How to upgrade to Windows 7 without preinsatlled Vista?


You cannot ?upgrade? to Win 7 without preinstalled Vista OS.
In such case you can make ONLY a clean installation of Win 7.
But for that you will need an Win 7 DVD and not an ?upgrade? disk.

I think the notebook was preinstalled with Vista and there was a possibility to create an Vista Recovery Disk.
(additionaly you get an Win XP disk in order to have two operating system).
It looks like you have not create such Toshiba Vista recovery disk using Toshiba Recovery disk creator (should be preinsatlled on the notebook) and this means that you will not be able to reinstall the Vista again?

I think there is nothing to do as to purchase an Win 7 disk and to make a clean install.

When I put my M700 in tablet mode, and tilt the tablet to 1side and press the button next to the cursor button it used to rotate the screen to that direction.
it doesnt do this anymore. I
Also noted that all accelerometer utilities, like tilt, shake, and advanced security do not work anymore. hdd motion detection does work.

I've reinstalled from recovery discs and installed original and new version from tablet extension and tvap. Nothing seems to help. I've also installed Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit, it doesnt work there either. Ive actually noticed that it also doesnt work in vista because of it not working under Windows 7.

I'm wondering whether or not my accelerometer is broken or not because it used to work with the original installation discs or is this a software issue?

To be honest if you have the same problem with factory settings it seems to be a hardware malfunction. Normally with factory settings everything should work properly without updating any software or driver.

If I open windows journal and try to write the file name and menu options just go grey and the cursor temporarily disappears.

Later on, I installed Windows Vista Enterprise but screen rotation utlities, be it irotate or pivotpro stopped working.
I've done latest BIOS update, installed latest Intel GMA drivers but the result didn't change. In the control panel of Vista, in tablet PC settings I only see primary landscape option, however all of my friends with different brand of laptops see 4 options there including portrait ones.

The screen rotation utility or more appropriately the TOSHIBA Accelerometer Utilities Tilt is unable to run and comes up with an error message unable to open the registry, (I got the utility from the American Toshiba site as they seem to be a bit more ahead on releasing software and updates for their laptops).

However it seems that the problem is that the software isn't working properly due to being denied access to the registry!

I am not very happy with this laptop from the very beginning as the performance is not as smooth as I expected. I have had issues when the laptop was brand new. Like the mouse cursor would sometimes suddenly get stuck somewhere on the screen and remain there. That problem still persists till date. So now I have started using an external mouse whenever the cursor gets stuck randomly. Coming back to the context, after upgrading to windows 10 the screen stopped rotating. I updated the lenovo transition software for windows 10. After that the screen rotation worked fine for sometime. But one fine day it just stopped working again. I tried everything that I read in the forum - 1. Tried pressing the rotation lock button on the right side of the laptop.2. Formatted my laptop and did a clean OS reinstall and then updated to windows 10 again.3. Changed the value of SensorPresent to 1 (it was 0) in registry. Auto rotation is also set to 1.4. Manually used the Ctrl+Alt+arrow keys to change screens to see if it did anything.5. Installed the latest lenovo transition software which is compatible with windows 10.6.

I have just purchased a Portege M750 laptop which came preinstalled with Vista Business 32bit and seperate XP tablet on a recovery disc.

I am looking to resinstall with 64bit Vista business, then install the XP as part of a dual boot system to take full advantage of the 4GB already installed and further memory expansion in the future.

My question is this: Although the Toshiba drivers download page does not specifically list a Vista 64 bit OS, has anyone carried out a similar OS change on a portege/or different laptop and had any incompatabilty with the 32bit drivers and applications? If so, which drivers/features were problematic afterwards.

Does the "Toshiba" folder in the C:\ directory of laptop contain all the drivers and setup files required or would these all have to be downloaded from the website.


Answer:Portege M750 - Change from 32-bit to 64-bit


Usually the 32bit divers are designed and created only for 32bit OS and usually they would not run on 64bit OS. But who knows, maybe some single drivers would be compatible with 64bit but this is more as questionable.

> Does the "Toshiba" folder in the C:\ directory of laptop contain all the drivers and setup files required or would these all have to be downloaded from the website.
Usually all Toshiba drivers could be downloaded from the Toshiba European driver page.
The Toshiba folder on C may contains only the installed tools and software.

I upgraded to windows 7 last night on my portege m700. It is Windows 7 Pro 64 bit. I installed all the drivers under the Windows & 64 bit category on Toshiba's page. Everything works great except the screen will not properly rotate when put into tablet mode.

I am wondering what I need to have it rotate once snapped into tablet mode, like it did in Vista. I have the Toshiba rotation utility installed but it doesn't seem to be doing anything. It seems like it is not receiving a signal from the monitor that it has been rotated.

I need this for school, so any help is GREATLY appreciated.

Answer:Portege M700 rotation issues after upgrading to Windows 7 64 bit


I think there are not all Win 7 64boit drivers published and released for M700 and you will have to install also some drivers released for Vista 64bit!

For example:
*Tablet PC Extension Package v for Vista 64bit*
This driver package installs a range of important utilities.

_TOSHIBA Rotation Utility:_ Set the default screen orientation you want the system to use when switching from PC to Tablet mode, or vice-versa.

_TOSHIBA Tablet PC Buttons Driver:_ You can dedicate tablet buttons to performing common tasks so that you can easily operate your tablet computer when you're away from your workstation. For example, you can dedicate a button to open a program or to change your screen orientation.

_TOSHIBA Accelerometer Utilities:_ These Utilities are a set of hardware utilities that work with the motion sensors built into you machine. With the Accelerometer, your machine will be able to detect the way you are holding it at any given moment. You can set the machine to perform a specific function when the unit is quickly tilted to the left or right, or to the front or back. You can also take control of the cursor in some applications and make it move by leaning the PC in a certain direction.

I have a Portege M750 tablet. This is the first computer I have ever purchased that did not come with disks to restore it after a crash, and it is the first one that I have needed those disks! The hard drive was going bad and so it has been replaced. The person who replaced it got the tablet pen to work fine, and got Windows Vista reinstalled, but I need the Toshiba software that makes the special buttons on the computer work (such as the screen rotate button) and causes the screen view to rotate when I flip the screen into tablet mode.

How do I get this software?

In case it helps, I DO still have the old hard drive and it still works sufficiently that I can get things off it - just has a bad section but there isn't much lost in the bad section.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Answer:Portege M750 - Where to get Toshiba software?

Hi organzier,

First of all your notebook wasn?t equipped with a recovery disk because you have to create this disk yourself using Toshiba recovery disk creator. Everything of these was preinstalled on your computer but you didn?t do that and now it?s too late? Why you didn?t read the user manual?

Anyway, now you can get all drivers and tools from the official Toshiba website: > Support & Downloads > Download Drivers

Just recently got my new Portege M750 (12G - but I don't see it on any lists). Anyway I'm a graphic designer so I tried to get the laptop to register pressure so I could pain better by installing the wacom tabletpc drivers from here:

Please this is getting frustrating, I remove the wacom drivers (though it stays in the control panel), i've tried inserting the restore disc to let it search for the original drivers, but it doesn't find anything.

Anyone know how to reset the drivers back to their original setting?

Answer:Portege M750 pen/tablet problems

To be honest I must say that I don't have much experience with tablet PCs. I played few times with one Portege model but I cannot say I am expert for tablet PCs.
Until you wait for final answer I just want to offer my personal opinion about all this.

As you know Toshiba has delivered this tablet notebook with own drivers, tools and utilities. All this stuff is designed for certain tablet PC. All Toshiba stuff is tested and it must work properly.

Anyway, back to your question. How to restore drivers?
Delivered ?restore disc? is an installations recovery image and you can use it if you want to install OS and have ?factory state? again (clean preinstalled OS). So you cannot use it for single driver installation.

If you want to install some specific drivers you can download them from Toshiba support page.
For downloading right drivers you must know right model number for your notebook. You can find it on the Toshiba sticker at the bottom side.

Where you bought this notebook? What is the country of purchase?

Is my M750 tablet 64 bit capable?
I'd like to install 8G of ram and be able to use that amount.....
The processor will run 64 bit, the motherboard will support 8G, but will the rest of the system?


Answer:Portege M750 - is it 64bit capable?


Do you want to know if your Win 7 would recognize the 8GB RAM?
In order to use more than 4GB RAM three components needs to support this;
- chipset
- OS 64bit

As far as I know some of the M750 supports the Mobile Intel(R) GM45 Express Chipset.
This chipset is 8GB capable so it should be able to use 8GB RAM.
In such case I think that BIOS would also recognize 8GB RAM.

You can install any OS. You can use Win 7 64bit and I don?t see any reasons why this should not work

can anyone help i got 2 spare batteries for my protege m750-11w and they dont work and i'm wondering do i need to do a BIOS update for them. The batteyr in my protege is PA3191U-5BRS and the two new batteries are both PA3191U-1BAS and it said that this battery would work where the -5BRS was in use.

I have updated my BIOS already from version 1.6 to version 3 and the battery still doesnt work i just get a white cursor flashing in the top left hand corner.

Does anyone know where i can obtain a BIOS update to except this battery?



Answer:Portege M750-11W - New battery won't work


That means Windows doesn?t start with new battery and you see only the flashing cursor?
That?s strange? Have you connected the AC/DC adaptor?

In my opinion you should fully charge the battery before you start Windows. After this try it again.

Hi, This problem came from a long story...First, my s230u started having problem waking up after the BIOS update in late September, so I followed the others' suggestions from this forum to downgrade my BIOS.  The hybernate problem fixed.  However, my screen rotation button then failed to function.  I checked the BIOS update webpage and found there was an update 1.61 which could help to solve this rotation button problem, but (1) there was no link anymore for the version 1.61, and (2) I'm afraid if I update my BIOS to 1.61, the wake-up problem will occur again.  My laptop functioned perfectly before the BIOS update in September (the BIOS update was automatically downloaded and installed).  Please help!!!  Thanks.

Answer:ThinkPad Twist s230u screen rotation button couldn't work

BIOS Update 1.63 is now out with several fixes in it.  Perhaps you could try that and see if resolves your issue?

Hello everybody,

I'm an Artist and I'm planing to buy a protege M750 so i wish to know the pen pressure levels is 256 or 512?
And if it's Wacom penabled cause i will sketche, paint and animate...and if not which protege is the best for this??

Thanks sooo muchhh

Rami D.

Answer:What pen pressure levels (256 or 512) does Portege M750 supports

I think the M750 would be the best tablet - in fact I think its the only one available at the moment. It definitely has a Wacom digitizer, and touchscreen.

It may be difficult finding out if its 256 or 512 levels, unless you use software. Is there much difference between 256 and 512?

Ok, So today when I started my M750 like usual.
I noticed the battery said 4 mins left 84% remaining?
I had the lowest settings on with toshiba power saver but 3 mins?
That is just SAD.

Can Anyone tell me how to fix this? Or should I just get a new battery?
I usually charged my laptop wherever I went, but now I HAVE to.

Answer:Portege M750 - low battery usage time


Try to new calibrate the battery. This means you should complete discharge the battery until the notebook shut down itself. Then load the battery complete and try it again.

If you have the same problem again, I would go to an ASP.

my notebook got infected with a virous Mallware Doctor and I do not think it is fully clean. I want to reformat, I just finished my other XP disktop and not it is the notebook turn. how do I do it since I do not have a window 7 CD as the notebook is preloaded with the OS and drivers.


Answer:How to reformate Portege M750 (PPM75A-OR904L)?

Hi samjesse,

Did you create the Toshiba recovery disk as mentioned in user manual? Using this disk you can restore the original out of box settings (factory settings) within few minutes. Therefore you have to boot from disk and follow the screen instructions. All drivers and Toshiba tools will be installed automatically you don?t have to do something yourself. You can drink a coffee during this installation ;)

If you don?t have the Toshiba recovery disk have a look in start menu > Toshiba. In this folder you should find ?Toshiba recovery media creator? to create this disk.

Check this!!!

Hi Everyone,

I have a Portege M750 Model PPM75A-007010 and I need to change the CMOS (RTC) battery.

Can anyone share with me
- where to find this battery
- is this the normal round battery and if you can tell me the battery number?
- or where can I purchase this battery and price range?


Answer:Portege M750 - CMOS (RTC) Battery replacement


Normally the RTC batteries in these models are rechargeable.
If not yet done, please let the unit run overnight (not off, not hibernated, not standby - but ON) and see if the issue is resolved.

I think the charge-description/characeristics of the RTC battery is mentioned in your users manual.

I have 2 Toshiba M750 models that are having Hibernation issues. They have about 15 to 20 applications open. They put the unit in Hibernation and it seems 4 out of 5 times the hibernation wakes up on it 's own. I am not sure where to start to check. Wake on lan,. Bios, They are having issues where the Toshiba power save feature disappears from the task bar.

I have dealt with some non-Toshiba notebooks and never had luck with HIbernation. I am wondering what else I can do or check?

Answer:Hibernation issues with Portege M750 model

Are there any USB devices attached? Or a Network cable?

Maybe they are waking up the system.

Check the BIOS and the Toshiba Utilities for these options.

I have about 40 Porteges a mixture between M700 and M750's I need to know the hardware and driver differences between the two for Ghosting purposes.

Answer:Hardware Differences Between Portege M700 and M750

I think the only difference is that the M700 uses the Intel Santa Rosa chipset (9xx series), and the M750 uses the newer Montevina chipset (4x Series).

So you would need to install an Intel Chipset utility/driver that supports both chipsets.

I think you can use the SIM in other modems - its basically just a standard SIM.

Does the XS4ALL come with a Connection Manager? Maybe you need to install that so the modem can be recognised properly

I'm having difficulties installing the tablet buttons in WINDOWS 8.1 Pro. Everything else works, perfectly.

In Windows 8 Pro this buttons worked nicely, but now, after a clean install of Windows 8.1 Pro two of the buttons don't work. The buttons are the Toshiba assist button and the presebtation button. I've tried to configure them in Toshiba assist software but nothing happens.

I'm sure I've installed all drivers that made wverything work with Windows 8. As anyone tryed this and add success?

Answer:Portege M750 and Win8.1 Pro -tablet buttons don't work

> I'm sure I've installed all drivers that made wverything work with Windows 8

Windows 8.1 is not Windows 8 and many of Toshiba Win 8 drivers and tools don?t work or are not fully compatible with Win 8.1

As far as I know the Toshiba does not support Win 8.1 on this Portege M750.
This means that no Win 8.1 drivers will be released and in such case some notebook features like the control buttons could not work properly.

Fact is that using Windows Vista or Win 7, such buttons were controlled by Value Added Package. This package does not exist for Win 8.1 and has been replaced by other software called Toshiba System Driver

So in case you want to try to get the buttons to work, I recommend checking this with Toshiba System Driver

I have an orange flash error code on my power light (1 long flash 3 short 1 long 2 short 1 long 1 short).....

I have to take the power connector out battery out and start by battery to get it to work......

I'm using Toshiba's windows 7 image with all updates from Microsoft (now I NEEDED a lot of the for verying reasons so don't grill me yet... eg DON"T LOAD MICROSOFT UPDATES blah blah blah)

What does this code mean and is there a Beta Bios above version 3 for these things......

Any helpful comments would be greatly appriciated......

Answer:Portege M750 doesn't start - power LED flashes


Short means 0, long means 1.
In your case the binary code is 1000 1001
Now you have to reverse the binary code due to most significant bit.
This means the code is; 1001 0001
The HEX code means; 91h

So error code is 91h but I don?t know what 91h means and what part could be affected exactly!

Possibly it?s something wrong with power supply electronic on the motherboard? but only the ASP technician could provide more details?
However, in most cases the motherboard is affected and should be replaced.

I just bought I used Portege M750 because my M700 was broken. Unfortunately, the select bays between both models are not compatible. Although the availability of a 2nd hdd caddy is mentioned in the users manual, I couldn't find the part no of the HDD caddy for the M750. I tried a standard SATA-SATA HDD caddy, but I get an "select bay error" message on startup, although the caddy works in windows as long as you don't hibernate.

Does anyone know the part no of the genuine 2nd hdd caddy for Portege M750 / M780? Or is there another 2nd hdd caddy which does work with the M750 without any restrictions?

Answer:Portege M750 - 2nd HDD caddy in select bay instead of optical drive


I assume you will need an Hard drive caddy part number: P000452980

But you can also contact the Toshiba ASP in your country to get an confirmation...

Since I remmember I use my laptop with enable sleep and hibernate features.
A couple of days ago it started not to restart after sleep or hibernate.

You have to take ou the battery and AC power and then it starts but without assuming the sleep/hibernate.

Another thing is that when you press the switch on button the AC power led, which is green normally, it starts blinking yellow with some sort of a code long and short flashes.

This happens with different operating systems cause I tried to reinstall and the problem persists.

Answer:Portege M750 doesn't restart after sleep or hibernate

> Another thing is that when you press the switch on button the AC power led, which is green normally, it starts blinking yellow with some sort of a code long and short flash

I know that if there is a memory malfunction the *Power indicator* will repeatedly flash on and off (0.5sec) If there is an error in slot A the indicator would flash orange twice then green.
If there is an error in slot B, the LED will flash orange once and green twice.
If error is in both slots, the LED flashes orange and green twice.

I cannot get TOSHIBA Wireless Manager (3G) to work in a new installation of Win 7 64 bit.

I made a successful trial installation of Windows 7 64-bit on and old SATA hard disk drive and checked that TOSHIBA Wireless Manager would work. It did.

I then made a new installation of Windows 7 64-bit on a new Crucial C300 Real SSD 256GB.

The new installation with the Crucial SSD is not very successful.... The "shutdown and restart" operation does not work -- the shutdown does not always power off completely and you have to hold the power switch down to power off.

Sometimes the SSD will not boot -- you enter the BIOS password but then nothing happens. Sometimes you have to power down and take the battery out before the drive will boot.

But the biggest problem is that the Wireless Manager (3G) will not work. The application opens and states that "Radio is turned off" -- which it can't be as I'm using the WiFi to post this question.

I have tried installing the Vodafone 3G software. This detects the presence of the "mobile device" (SIM card in the slot) but then cannot enable it.

I have downloaded and installed all the latest chip drivers, the 3G driver, 3G software, LAN driver, LAN software and all Windows 7 updates.

I have the latest BIOS (3.0) but this has not been updated by Toshiba since 04/11/09.

I note that the Toshiba PC Diagnostic Tool does not recognize the 8G memory installed (but ccleaner does):

Answer:Portege M750 Win7 64bit Wireless Manager (3G) will not work

points to a firmware issue on the SSD drive (is it sandforce) coupled to BIOS incompatability of the SSD.

i presume all the drivers etc installed were identical on the HDD trial install? so if thats the case it has to be the SSD not communicating with the BIOS correctly, hence the other issues as well

I've got a Lenovo Yoga 700-11ISK that I've reformatted and reinstalled with Windows 10 Pro. I've been unable to get the rotation lock / rotation sensor working, which seems to be a very common problem. However, none of the common solutions has seemed to fix the issue. Below is a detailed list of everything I?ve learned. Note that whenever I refer to "Tent Mode," I mean the device's screen is physically rotated (?folded back?) more than 180 degrees. Don?t confuse this with "Tablet mode," the software-based switch available in the Win10 Action Center; when I say "Tent Mode," I refer only to *physically* folding back the screen.

First, let's establish how it behaves on the factory image (i.e. the copy of Windows that comes with the system). These are the desired/expected behaviors, which I?m listing point-by-point for comparison to how it mis-behaves on my fresh Windows 10 Pro install:

1) In Tent Mode, "Rotation Lock" is available in the Action Center; otherwise, it's greyed.
2) In Tent Mode, "Lock rotation of this display" is available in System->Display settings; otherwise it's greyed.
3) In Tent Mode, the ?Allow the screen to auto-rotate? checkbox in the Display control panel is available; otherwise it?s greyed.
4) In Tent Mode, the physical rotation lock button works; pressing it shows a ?auto rotate on/off? OSD. Otherwise the button has no effect.
5) In Tent Mode, registry key HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr... Read more

Answer:Rotation Lock / Rotation Sensor Not Working (Lenovo Yoga 2-in-1)

Your detailed description takes a while to get through. But it appears you have tried Tent Mode, which is what I used to make the option active, and it does no good. I remember which I first got this machine, 3 days ago, I decided to not let it switch the screen around and answered lock when asked, but my Unlock does become active in Tent Mode.

I have quite a few additional drivers on this system I have not seen before. Many of there are for Sensors, so perhaps you just haven't loaded the correct ones yet... sorry I can't help with your specific model. Try turning it on end and see if the button becomes active. It seems like mine appears to go back to the locked mode every time after I select unlock.

The power button on my PC has stopped working as it used to. Pressing the power button on my PC would normally send the PC to sleep, then pressing it again would wake it.

Two things I have noticed

1) My PC stopped automatically going to sleep like it used to (after 1 hour) as set in the power setting's of the control panel - I have to manually "Shut Down" or "Sleep" from start menu now.

2) Pressing the power button, now just restart's the computer, greeting me with a "Windows did not shut down correctly" message after the BIOS post.

After the initial install of windows (if I remember correctly) the power button did not do anything unitl the ACPI drivers where installed (giving a message in the action centre saying "You need to install the power management...."), after installing the ACPI drivers (Cool & Quiet from the ASUS site) the power button appeared to work as expected.

Then randomly, a while ago, I got another message in the Action Centre, again saying "You need to install the power management ....", but I archived the message and am not sure how to view it again.

Im not sure as to why this would start happening as it would suggest something has happened with the ACPI drivers and I dont know how I can actually check ACPI drivers in the device manager console.

Dear all,

I recently installed a new monitor on a system of mine. For certain reasons it has to be installed upside down.

I did not install this system so there may be some settings I need to change or something.

Hey guys, I'm having trouble with my screen rotation.To start with there was no rotation, no button in the notifications area, and no option in display settings.After reading a few similar threads, I updated my BIOS, and checked my drivers. 3 Human interface drivers weren't functioning, so I uninstalled them and checked for changes and they reinstalled apparently correctly.Now I have the rotate icon (and auto rotate option in display settings), however they are both locked, with no option to unlock them. The screen will rotate manually with ctrl+Alt+ arrow keys, but the auto rotate won't work. I suspect it has something to do with a sensor driver, but as I can't find a sensor driver in Device manager I'm not sure.I hope this makes sense, and I hope yu can help, thx

I don't know if this a problem with my hardware or software of the laptop.

I've had this problem for months now.

It has to do with my SHIFT button. Every time I press it and press on another key, it acts as if it's a different command.

For example,

Shift + 1, which should give an exclamation mark, gives the command of Esc.

Shift + U, gives the command of Undo.

Shift + E gives the command of PageUp.

Shift + i gives the command of F11

Shift + _(underscore) adds a space before the underscore.

...... The list is longer.

It also affects other programs i use, such as Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. In those programs, Shift + other keys act as commands such as F7, F8, Ctrl + t.

If that does not solve the problem it could be a hardware defect and i would advice you to get a warranty replacement/repair.

Just upgraded my Win 10 Home Tablet to Version 1511 and the screen will no longer rotate. Have looked at Device Manger and it indicates that all is OK except Other Devices and it contains an Unknown Device. Not sure if this is relevant to my problem as I thought the Display Adapter controlled what the screen does. I have looked at the Display Settings but no mention off anything being locked. The display adapter is Intel(R) HD Graphics.

Any help appreciated.

Answer:Screen Rotation Not Working after Upgrade to 1511

If you cannot do it with Shift+alt + arrow key or Ctrl+alt + arrow. The lack of a hotkey option could be because you don’t have the software installed. For example, Intel’s Graphics and Media Control Panel needs to be installed in order to use hotkeys to rotate the display other adapters have different names.

You should be posting this on Windows 10 Forums

Here is what I have done for my X61 Tablet (7764CTO) to make the touch screen working properly. First of all, please make sure that you X61 Tablet screen supports the touch function (finger inputting like that in iPad or iPhone). I know that a high resolution screen does not support touch inputting function. Problem:After updating my system to windows 8 pro, my finger inputing was not functioning well. For instant, it is always 2-3 inches miss match when I try to point somewhere on the screen. I cannot calibrate by using Control Panel==>Tablet PC settings since I cannot correctly reach the calibrating points. ?Actually, I was a Linux user (Ubuntu) but I cannot use my printer in that system and just wanted to give it a try of the new Windows 8 metro.? I was searching the web but cannot get a solution to fix this problem and therefore I decided to DIY. The solution provided here might not solve your problem. You may, however, give it a try as it is super easy to follow and may just cost you about 5 minutes. Solution: (All these are following basic trouble shooting steps.) (1) Update your drivers:      a. Go to Control Panel==>Device Manager==>Human Interface Devices      b. Update driver:  ==>Human Interface Devices==>Wacom Penabled Dual Touch by right clicking and choosing "Update Driver Software"             &... Read more

I think the problem with screen rotation in the tent mode has been discussed extensively. In addition to that I am also facing a problem with incorrect cam screen rotation while using application like Skype. I like using skype in a stand mode, usually the screen orientation works fine but sometimes my camera screen gets screwed completely. Once that happens it is almost impossible to get your picture straight. Remember the screen rotation remains accurate during this. So in other words, if you are video chatting with someone, you see the opposite party's image in a correct fashion but your images gets completely distorted. Any skype users face that? any fixes out there?    Furthermore, when I change from tablet mode to laptop mode my mouse pointer (touchpad) setting automatically changes itself to reverse bothering the heck out of me. 

Answer:Think Pad Twist Screen Rotation along with cam rotation while using skype

I'm sorry to hear that you have this problem. I just also bought  my twist on black friday and I'm having issues with the automatic screen rotation. Fortunately, it seems that Lenovo is working on a new updated driver to fix this. By any chance are you also having this issue? Mouse moves in tablet modeWhen I switch from laptop mode to tablet mode, the mouse pointer doesn?t disappear and starts moving around. I obviously just want to be navigating with my fingers and it gets really annoying as it will also click on random tiles or whatever the pointer travels to and clicks.   It's really annoying. I like this computer and I can just imagine how much more in love I will be if this issues are fixed. It seems that the short battery life is also a problem that Lenovo is working on fixing. Nobody is seeeing the advertised 7 hour life!

Hi All

Recently finished upgrade of Win 10 Home Tablet to Version 1511 and Screen rotation no longer works. I have checked Device Manager and everything is indicating OK with exception of Other Devices and that indicates there is an Unknown Device and no driver installed.
I do not think this has anything to do with the problem as I understand the Display adapter controls the rotation. I have checked the Display section in Control Panel and no mention of screen being locked or for that matter unlocked.
The Tablet manufacturer is Connect and the Display adapter is Intel(R) HD Graphics with Driver dated 17/08/2015 and Version This is same as my laptop and it works OK.

Appreciate any assistance

Answer:Upgrade to Version 1511, Screen Rotation no longer working

This is a common problem ie you are missing the rotation sensor driver. Go to tablet website and see if you can download driver.

Answer:After update to Lumia Cyan why did the screen rotation stop working?

You can try a soft reset.
Hold volume down and power button together until the phone vibrates. This will restart the phone. No data is lost. You may need to reset the date and time.
Check your settings as well.

Hi,After a driver update my physical windows key located on my screen (for use in tablet mode) does not work. Pressing it does not bring up the Windows 8 metro UI/start panel. Does anybody have a fix for this? It is a very useful and convenient button and it is a shame that it doesn't function properly.Thanks.

I would like to be able to use the laptop screen as a tablet whilst viewing an external monitor. The problem is that when using the laptop in its tablet configuration (the screen rotated and clipped in on top) the external monitor shows the image upside down. If I rotate the output for the screen image then I have to use the tablet upside down which is impossible when docked. Is there anyway of independently setting the screen rotation for the tablet and that of the external monitor?
If anyone could help me with this I would be grateful as at the moment I have to undock the tablet and use upside down or not use the external monitor.

I have a Portege M200 with the Gforce 5200Go. Since the last officially available graphics driver is the 46.44 I modified the 93.71 and installed it. But the Rotation Utility doesn't work with this driver.

When I use the nv driver for screen rotation the tabletpen is no longer synchronized: moving the tabletpen left results in mouse movement upwards etc

Anybody any ideas?

I recently bught a use M200. I installed Windows 7 on it. It runs really nice.
I use it with "Toshiba Portege M200 Tecra M4 Multi Dock 2 PA3315E-3PRP" and a second screen with 1680x1050 resolution.
Now im looking for a recent driver witch has the following features:

Working screens, hibernate/sleep, rotation.

*Problems with 97.52:*
The drivers from toshiba makeing trouble with the screens, if the external is connected the internal stops working, is not recognized anymore in windows and you cant get it back to work.... (the nvidia panel sees it but you cant enable it)

In the same moment the internal screen stops working, the external screen rotates.
So i have not one working screen at this time.
The same problem i have with all drivers from version 97.29 and up.
With driver version 101.70 there are additional graphic glitches one the rotatet second screen.

With the driver version 156.55 both screens are gray after driver installation....

The previus driver to version from version 97.19 to 96.33 working without hibernate/sleep (the smaller problem)

The driver 95.62 works with hibernate but external resolution ist only 1600x1024(can be modded) but if you rotate to another landscape everything stays black until you rotate back to normal landscape...

The driver 88.61 has no hibernate/sleep (grayed out)

So has anyone a hint for me what can i do to get hib... Read more

Answer:Portege M200: Win 7 need graphic driver for hibernate/sleep, rotation

The problem with Beta/RC builds is that there is basically no "official" driver support and the OS has not been finalized, so you'll either need to wait until nVidia release new Win7 drivers, or wait until Win7 has been released officially (July hopefully).

I am having an intermittent problem logging into Windows 7 and it seems to be getting worse, so I was hoping someone might be able to help me.
What happens is: After turning on my Computer and selecting my profile. I type my password, then hit Enter on my keyboard to log in. Nothing happens. And if I try to click on the log-in arrow nothing happens either. To fix this I can sometimes click the Switch User button, which will quickly switch to a black screen and then back to the profile chooser(then it sometimes works to log-in), but other times it just displays the log-in background, then I have to restart my computer to try again.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank You,

Answer:Windows 7 Login Screen button stops working

Hello Tristar and welcome to Seven Forums.

Depending on how long you've been experiencing this problem, you might be able to use a restore point to return your computer to a date/time prior to when the problem first began.

System Restore

If you have difficulties logging in you might have better success by accessing Safe Mode through Advanced Boot Options.

Safe Mode

Malware could also cause the problems you're experiencing. If you haven't already done so, do a full scan with your installed anti-malware suite. Since no anti-malware program is 100% effective 100% of the time (if there was such a thing we'd all be using it), I also recommend running full scans with these free products:


ESET Online Scanner

Windows Defender Offline (This requires you to make a bootable CD/DVD/Flash drive because it will bypass the usual startup procedure. Best to create the bootable media on a machine that is known to be malware free.)

It's also possible that you might have damaged or corrupt system files. Try running a system file checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two.) If problems are found, run th escan 3 times and reboot your computer after each scan.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Please post back if anything helped or not.

i have a win tablet 8 inch named model injoo it came with win 8.1 preinstalled and it had the rotation working it was win 8.1 with bing i downloaded win 10 home burnt on usb and did clean
install of win 10 was completed fine but ididnot find the rotation button in side menu
i had backed up all drivers from win 8.1 before install win 10 and device manager shows
every thing is installd
so how can ihave rotation working

Answer:Why am I missing the rotation button?

This is why I rarely do clean installs on laptops and tablets. for the drivers some are not easy to get. but if have a factory reset option I would advice you to go back to 8.1 and then upgrade to 10.
There must be a driver that it's missing. if the button is not action center or settings. that means driver would be a problem. maybe everything seems to be installed as well, but you know, it's not the proper driver for your hardware. so I would advice you to try to find them, or ask innjoo for them or something. I got into innjoo site and it seems it doesn't have drivers for their tablets, only android phones. but if it was working on windows 8.1 it should work on Windows 10, the problem are these small things that disappear when you clean install.

My operating system is windows 10 Pro.
After updating the bios my built in speaker and touch-pad three button not working. Can anyone give me suggestion that how to overcome this problem. 

Answer:Latitude 6430u Build in speaker not working and touch-pad button not working right button and bottom two button

Hello. Try re-installing the IDT audio driver.
Win10 is not supported by Dell on the Latitude 6430u so install the IDT 1.0.6491.0 driver using compatibility mode.
1. Download and save the audio driver to your desktop or any convenient location on the hard drive.  [There are two "formats" on the driver's page. Scroll down to the 2nd one, named "Hard Drive" format, and download that one, not the 1st one named "Windows Update Package".]2. Double click on the new folder to extract (unzip) the driver files.3. The extractor wizard will create a new folder for the driver files. It will be at "c:\dell\drivers\xxxxxx". Write down the exact location that the wizard creates. 4. If the driver begins to install automatically, halt (cancel) the installation.5. Browse to the driver files on the hard drive (the location you wrote down).6. Find the "setup.exe" file.7. Right click on setup.exe to open the context menu.8. Select the Properties.9. Select the Compatibility tab.10. Check the box "run this program in compatibility mode for"... Win7.
If the speakers still do not work, test them with the ePSA or the PSA audio test.
If the speakers pass the test and still do not work, try an earlier version of the BIOS. You can get links to all 11 versions of the BIOS here.  That page also has all the touchpad drivers.
If doing that does not work, perform a system recovery and return the laptop to the operating system that was ... Read more

Hello everyone, so I performed a fresh install of windows 8 Pro on my Lenovo flex 3-1120. After installation I struggled getting most of the drivers for the laptop but finally came through with all with the exception of one with hardware id  ACPI\VEN_DUAL&DEV_250E I have tried all I can to get this driver but to no avail. From the little I know, I understand its somehow connected with the bitland g-sensor which will make my laptop recognise and switch (rotate) into standing, tent, or tablet mode. I have downloaded and installed all Bitland G-sensor I have come across on lenovo driver page and, it still not working. Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

There is "escape" button on the screen panel (left lower corner). The other function on the button is to rotate the screen if you hold it for more than 1 sec (according to the picture and the manual).

This should be very handy in the tablet mode. Unfortunately the rotate function does not work for me. The button itself works because "escape" does what it says. I would not want to redefine "escape" to "rotate" but there is no even this option.

Anyone has/had similar problem?

Answer:Tecra M7: ESC/Rotation button does not work


This ESC/Rotation button functions the same as the ESC key when tapped, or changes the orientation of the screen when pressed for more then second. That?s right!

Did you read the further information in the user manual??? I found some nice info in the ?Changing the screen orientation? section.
You can change the screen orientation on three different ways and one of this way is the usage of the ESC/Rotation button!

When the Toshiba Accelerometer Utilities and Toshiba Rotation Utility are running, changes in the orientation of the top and bottom of the screen is automatically recognized by pressing ESC/Rotation button for more than one second.

So be sure that both utilities are running properly!!!

Best regards
