Having problems with your Dell Latitude XT Laptop ?

Cannot change the screen orientation on my Gateway M280 tablet PC

\015 Whenever I push the button (hardware) on my Gateway M280 tablet PC to change the orientation from primary landscape to secondary landscape, I get the following error dialog:[Tablet Button]The setting you requested cannot be supported.Open Display in Control Panel, adjust the settings, and then try to change orientation again.I have tried selecting nearly every single setting I can in the display settings to no avail. I am at the end of my rope and the ATI folks who created the drivers for this laptop's video card don't have a driver update to help, apparently.I'm on Windows XP for Tablet PCs (2002) SP3.Any and all help is greatly appreciated!\015\012\015\012I have the same problem with a Dell Latitude XT running Windows XP and started with update To SP3 Yes, after some security updates it quite working. Which update I'm not sure and rolling back to before they were install works except windows sercurity updates will reload it and it quit working again.\015

Answers :

I know for a fact that there are issue with ATI and SP3 for windows XP, did you roll back to SP2 and then loading the ATI driver?

\015\012Try doing the following to see if it shore up the problem roll the computer back to the last known good installation "where everything worked fine". There is a roll back feature in Setting control panel, you would need to selct the date where it worked fine, select the date and it will roll you back. I do encourage you back up any important files or emails or any changes you made after the date so you do not loose data. Reboot and see if this works.
