I was having a terrible time trying to get the auto-rotate option working on my Elitebook 1030 G2. I tried all of the options found via a web search and nothing worked (driver updates, registry modifications, etc.).
Until I modified an unrelated function in the BIOS. This fixed my rotation lock issue:
- Enter the bios (F10 during computer POST or SHIFT-RESTART while in Windows and choose startup options).
- Navigate to “Advanced” – “Intel Remote Management Options”
- Activate/Enable “Active Management (AMT)”
- Save BIOS settings and reboot.
Log back into Windows and test your auto-rotation.
