Talking FOUND! Accelerometer for Inspiron Duo (& Samsung Series 7 Slate ) - 04-27-2012, 05:23 PM

Sorry, I can't post links. Replace the underscores with dots.

Find a usable driver here : www_samsung_com/global/windowspreview
Credit goes to Gubie here : social_technet_microsoft_com//Forums/en-US/w8itprohardware/thread/033d6727-e34b-4733-a8e6-241487d65303

It's for the Slate, but the driver is by ST Electronics and it's the same chip manufacturer for the Duo.

I just downloaded and installed the (32bit) driver on my Dell Inspiron Duo. Rebooted and it works GREAT! Didn't even unzip, installed straight from the ZIP file.

Metro desktop rotated. Launched Metro Kindle and it came up rotated.

I thought I should share. I get such great info here.

It works but it will change the orientation when you are in laptop mode but I like that. The DUO's original driver had to be in tablet mode before the screen would change.

Awesome! I had given up hope that there would ever be a rotation driver under Windows 8.

This makes me so happy. Plus note there is the 64 bit version there too.
Yes I kinow 64 bit is a waste on this machine but some of the Adobe Creative Suite products require 64 bit even though it would not fully use from on this.
