Screen Reading optimization not working

2011-10-27, 9:10 AM



When I got this laptop two months ago (W520), I discovered this utility Screen Reading Optimization, which automatically rotates your screen, touchpad and keyboard arrows to the laptops orientation. Worked flawlessly.


However, it doesn't anymore. I can hapilly click 'Calibrate' a million times a day, yet it won't rotate my screen anymore. It simply refuses to, no matter how I turn it around.


The only program I'm aware of that uses the same sensor is the Airbag Protection. This displays a graphic of my laptop orientation, and surprise, it works. Except for one bit: if I hold my laptop still for a moment, it automatically updates this new position as being level. However, this could be just some feature of Airbag Protection, I'm not sure.


What can I do to fix this? Reinstalling Screen Reading Optimization didn't work! Help?


Thanks in advance!

Hi s119349, and welcome to the Lenovo User Community!


The Screen Reading Optimizer uses the Airbag Protection program. Check that both are updated.

USB-C: Just cos it fits don't mean it works.
I don't work for Lenovo. I'm a crazy volunteer!
