Windows 7: dell inspiron duo hardware issue

dell inspiron duo hardware issue

i`m trying a new touch interface on my new Dell Inspiron Duo because the Stage Interface was just awefull.

the only thing that worked on the dell stage interface was starting automatically when swiveling the screen.

im now using the Thinix Touch interface, but im unable to start it automatically when swiveling the screen.

i already called Dell, and 1,5 hours later i was exactly where i started.

now know there must be a possibility to use the hardware (magnetometer) that detects the swiveling, but there is no visible setting to do so.

i`ve tried to contact the developers of the Dell Stage Interface, but i cant find out who made the software.

Dell wont tell me, and they tell me they probably can find out, but for solving my problem they would have to charge me 80 bucks.

no way in hell am i paying for something like this, so i`m trying to figure this one out for myself.

no luck so far, so i would like to ask you all for help

so if anyone has any idea, i would be forever gratefull!

BTW:this is the only thing bothering me about the Duo, so far its the best machine i`ve ever had (not counting my custom rig at home of course)

Janno, you have my sympathy.Unfortunately, I know nothing about the touch interface, But I do know a lot about Dell. I have had my issues with them as well. They are the reason I built my current rig. My Dell runs pretty well as long as I stay away from Dell tech support. The last ratings I saw said Dell had the best tech support. If that's true I feel sorry for the others. But, sorry I can't help you.
