Thinkpad X1 1st GEN 20GGS00U00 Display Auto-Rotate Broken

2018-09-05, 17:36 PM

In Tablet Mode, the display no longer auto-rotates from portrait to landscape. This started recently, probably due to some update of drivers. The SensorInfo App from the Windows Store confirms the accelerometer is OK and detects changes in orientation. 

The Lenovo Vantage app confirms all the latest system updates and drives. The Lenovo website confirms no errors on a hardware test. 

I do have a Rotation Lock icon in the system tray area. From another thread I have confirmed the relevant registry settings. 

I am also on the latest 1.8 BIOS version. 


I can manually set landscape or portrait from the display settings. But it no longer changes orientation automatically depending on how

I hold the tablet in PC or Tablet mode.
