    Did you read the entire thread? Others have had video driver problems.

    I read the wrong post,link was for 915 driver on page 8, wouldn't be correct for my device with 82852
    also running cmd as admin ect, following istructions to letter
    im now ageing rapidly with this, man ive tried all afternoon, no go, still reverts back to standard vga no matter if disabled 945gm after notification that 82852 has successfully installed

    well im about to give up on the display rotation, no matter how many times I try it will not work, even tried in safe mode just keeps reverting back to standard vga
    is there any other way or drivers I can try

    desperation is kicking in now
    but I may have to just do without rotation as ive grown weary over the past week

    I'm not sure if rotation still works on my CF19 with W7 or not. I know I was having trouble getting it to work....

    I would think if you use the Vista driver it would rotate...I do know for sure that any driver other than the Panasonic drivers will NOT rotate on a CF19.

    right thanks for the reply
    bit of an update, messed with this till 2am this morning with the bit between my teeth,
    ive gotten rotation to work with the front panel rotation button, but it will not auto rotate, I used the Panasonic 6.14.10.4497 driver, ran cmd prompts as per 1st post, then ran driver from setup exe as admin and vista compatibility, i then restarted, booted to safe mode, used same process , rebooted again used F8 whilste restarting, used the disable driver enforcement in the safe mode menu, pc booted up, in device manager I now have under display adapters in device manager 82852/82855 and if I look at its properties tells me its working correctly and doesn't revert back to standard vga after reboot or shut down
    , but I do have in other devices, 1 video controller with exclamation mark, any attempt to install driver for this then buggers my working 82852/82855 driver after reboot,and lose tablet button function rotation,
    I guess im just gonna have to settle with this for now, spending tooooo long trying to get it sorted and the wife not best pleased lol
    just please after I got tablet button to rotate
    I used acronis true image 2015 to back up complete pc to external usb h/drive after I got tablet buttons to work, this has been invaluable whilst trying to get the other video controller to accept a driver, also I do not have the intel gfx extreme icon in taskbar probs because of the none working video controller having no driver installed, but hopefully at some point I will have another attempt to get full functionality, just thought id share this info incase someone has similar issue,
    not sure if this would work for anyone else , but this what worked for me

    great place to be this forum, a wealth of info and im pleased to be here
