Disabling the screen rotation is not the issue. I may want to rotate it another time.
The issue, as I mentioned above, is that the settings are not being saved.
It is not HP's problem that the settings are not saving in Intel's HD Graphics Driver. It is Intel's problem.
So somebody at Intel should have the answer for this.
Your claim that the driver does not save the settings is not true.
I created a profile with "Rotate to Normal" and clicked "Save".
For the first screenshot, the Current Settings under Display Profiles is selected, and the Rotation is 270 Degrees.
When I select my saved profile, the Rotation changes to "Rotate to Normal".
This proves that your driver DOES SAVE rotation settings. However, they are overridden when I physically rotate my screen.
1. select "Rotate to Normal" for Current Settings, and then "Apply" the settings,
2. a window pops up saying "The new settings have been applies. Do you want to keep these settings?"
3. I select "OK"
4. If I physically rotate my screen, reboot the computer, etc., these settings do not persist. At times,
even in the normal laptop "Landscape" mode, the screen will rotate to "Portrait" mode (i.e., "notebook" mode).
Then I have to restart the Intel Graphics Control Panel and change everything back. VERY INCONVENIENT.
Your bug is that the saved settings are being overridden when the screen rotates, for some bizarre reason.
My question is very simple:
How do you override this so that the screen will stay in “Rotate to Normal” mode after I physically rotate my screen?
If I disable your driver, Windows 7 handles it correctly and does not rotate the screen. However, I cannot make my HP 2740P sleep or hibernate and the graphics are very choppy. So the best fix is for me to find someone at Intel who knows what they are talking about when it comes to this driver, with:
a) a fix for this problem, or
b) an acknowlegement that this is a bug.
Either would be considered a knowledgeable response.
