    Nextbook Tablet - Screen not Rotating with Windows 10 Upgrade?


    I recently picked up a Nextbook 10 and, after upgrading to Windows 10 from 8, the screen rotation no longer works. I've googled the problem and found some older posts. Has there been any update? I found another post from a Microsoft site where someone provided a link to his site with registry files and I wound picking up malware (I'm currently resetting the tablet). I've reset once before with no luck.

    Thoughts?

    There is an extra accelerometer driver that you have to manually install and a then a registry key after that to correct the orientation. I have them at home on the microSD card in my Nextbook. Did you make a backup image of the Windows 8.1 installation by chance? There are several drivers from the Windows 8.1 you will need, have you looked in Device Manager to see if there is any other hardware missing drivers?

    I did not. I wouldn't know what to look for in DM.

    K. When I get home, I'll post a link to the Konix Fusion Sensor Driver you need and the reg file to correct the screen orientation. If you right click the Windows 10 start icon, select device manager. Look for anything that says "unknown device" or has an exclamation point on it's icon. Those are the troubled devices you will need drivers for. The Konix Fusion Sensor device is not listed in device manager. You will have to right click on the very top entry of device manager and select Add Legacy Hardware and point it to the specific driver I will send you a link to. I'll walk you through it more when I get home from work today.

    For what it's worth, after I got all the hardware drivers installed and working correctly, I absolutely love this tablet! For $150 from Walmart I think it's one of the best Windows 10 tablet deals going. Just don't get the keyboard wet - not even a couple drops. The keyboard is very sensitive to moisture. So when I want to watch a movie from my hot tub, I take only the tablet with me and not the keyboard :-)

    Sounds great, thanks! Also, no "unknown device" or exclamation points.

    Also, for future reference, especially on tablets and netbooks like these that have the 32 or 64 GB eMMC memories, it is a good idea to do a full backup of the eMMC when you first get it. I use Macrium Reflect Free for that. Most of these devices come with Windows 8.1 Bing (core connected). You can't download install media for Windows 8.1 Bing and the standard install media for Windows 8.1 will not work. So, if you have problems with the upgrade to Windows 10 and find yourself stuck (like needing this driver, or the registry entry fix), you have no way of going back to the factory Windows 8.1 Bing unless you made an image of it first.

    Also, before upgrading a retail, off the shelf computer of any type, I like to export all the non-Microsoft standard drivers using the DISM /Export-Driver command. That way if there is some funky piece of hardware that ends up as an "unknown device" after the upgrade, I can point device manager to the folder I exported the drivers to and it will load the Windows 8.1 drivers from there.

    I do have the Windows 8.1 Bing factory image for the Nextbook Flexx 10.1 and all the drivers exported. I'll have to look at the image size and driver folder size to see if a 16GB or 32GB flash drive or Micro SD card would be required if you need them sent to you. However with all the drivers installed, I have had zero problems with Windows 10 running on this.

    Here's the driver and the .reg file:
    Microsoft OneDrive - Access files anywhere. Create docs with free Office Online.

    after you unzip the file to a folder, right click on Windows start icon, select device manager. Right click on the topmost entry for the entire tablet itself, select Add legacy hardware. Click next. Select the bottom option, Install the hardware that I manually select..., next. Click next again. Click have disk. Browse to the kxfusion.inf file that you saved. Click open, OK. Highlight Kionix Fusion Sensor Device. Next, Next again. Finish.

    Then go to the folder that you unzipped and double click on the .reg file to import it into your registry. You might have to restart the tablet. Then in the notification panel of Windows 10 you will have the button for Rotation Lock. Make sure that is turned off (not highlighted). That should do it for you!

    The driver and the .reg file were extracted from my Nextbook Flexx 10.1 Windows 8.1 factory install.
