Hi all! I'm a DIY guy with this laptop, so I'm not afraid to tear it apart to replace modules or boards. Plus, it's 5yrs old LOL.
-My laptop fell off the coffee table onto the hardwood floor. Screen is not cracked and the touch feature works fine, but the laptop no longer does screen rotation and the keyboard will not lock out.
It sounds to me like there is a sensor or module that is bad now. Does anyone know if I will need to replace the whole screen, or is the module a separate board? They seem pretty cheap these days, and the laptop is still a great performer. I'd hate to trash it.

To be clear-
Auto rotate in windows 10 isn't greyed out, it's a light blue color and can't be selected to toggle on or off.
Touch screen feature still works, but keyboard is still active when rotating
All software and drivers are up to date. Bios is up to date.
I need to know which area of the laptop to look at replacing, or for pinched or damaged connectors.
MB is new, I replaced that last week due to a broken (by me) connector during SSD troubleshooting.


Thanks,
John
