How to unlock Secondary Landscape Orientation

By infiniteinsight ·
I have a tablet pc and the secondary landscape orientation is locked. I downloaded Intel's version of the GMA x4500 driver and it unlocked the ability to rotate 180 degrees, however Tablet PC settings in control panel still shows the 180 degree orientation (secondary landscape) as locked, or not there. I can't assign the screen rotate button on the screen bezel to rotate to secondary landscape without it being unlocked there.

I think I've found the registry key responsible for this, but I have no idea how to change it and Deleting it did not seem to do the trick.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Tablet PC\TiltData\DisplayOrientation180

In the DisplayOrientation180 subkey is a REG_SZ with the name (Default) and (value not set) in the data column.

Under it is a REG_NONE titled ISD V4 which contains hex values as follows:

0000   40 00 00 00 02 00 00 00   @.......
0008   00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00   ........
0010   00 80 00 00 00 80 00 00   ........
0018   00 00 00 00 02 00 02 00   ........

I suspect this is a registry entry which locks out the 180 degree display orientation (secondary landscape) from showing up in the Tablet PC Settings in the Control Panel. Please help? I want to be able to rotate my screen to any orientation on my Fujitsu Lifebook T5010 Tablet PC!

How would I change this entry to be able to do so?

Sounds to me this is done automatically. So try this out..

.... Portrait Orientation:
Hold the system with the display positioned vertically with the latch on the
left.

....... 2nd Portrait Orientation:
Hold the system with the display positioned vertically with the latch on
the right.

............. Landscape Orientation:
Hold the system with the display positioned horizontally with the latch
on the top.
Note: Holding the system horizontally with the latch at the bottom is not a functional orientation.
You might want to read your manual and get used to the way your computer works. :)

I really hope you are joking.

I was actually able to fix it myself with a new graphics driver and several registry tweaks. Thanks anyway.

Infiniteinsight, How were you able to solve this problem? I just purchased the 5010 and I used to take notes on powerpoint presentations with my previous tablet in the "secondary landscape" orientation (with the clip at the bottom). thanks for any help you can provide
