    Intel screen Rotation

    Hi Guys

    We have about 300+ Optiplex 745 from Dell and the students have discovered the screen rotation on the intel graphics cards

    I've blocked them from being able to use the igfxtray program, which seems to disable the hotkeys from working, through group policy as well as an admin template that disables the use of the hotkeys at the machine level, it seems to have worked (though only 2 days in is probably a bit early to tell).

    What we've had in the past though is where the screen has been rotated it can't be corrected. We (ICT support technicians) use the hotkeys, or graphics properties on the context menu, and the computer promptly rights the screen then resets. After rebooting back into XP it still has the turned screen.
    We've tried taking the graphics driver out and putting it back in as well as the graphics software to no effect, which leaves us with the one option of reimaging the computer from our WDS server. Which does put it right but it's a bit drastic for a supposed simple problem.

    What I was wondering is if anyone else has encountered this and whether there's a solution to it (other than an hour long re-image process)? Any help infact would be appreciated.

    Mavericks Ghost

    Can this be run at startup of the machine then using a script?

    Just thought i'd add that i've been fighting this for a while and removing the tray seemed to work but then I noticed that (as stated above) right clicking the desktop activated igfxsrvc.exe. I banned this with software restriction policy which works very well, the only problem is that you see allot of errors in the event log this isn't a problem for the users it just bugs me

    I'll take a look at that reg patch from Intel now to see if that improves the situation.

    We've just enabled the right click option after a survey of staff and students, it's not been an issue untill this and I think the issue will be solved by the Intel reg patch.

    No right-click just frustrates everyone, and usually interferes pretty thoroughly with IT lessons / ECDL courses that rely on using context menus. I understand why it's done and what it prevents, but unless there was a serious risk at hand I hate doing this.

    Remember having to waste many a man hour dealing with this issue at my last school - wish I'd known about this site back then to have implemented some of these fixes, as teachers could never remember the key combo themselves no matter how many times I told them!

    You prob have this sorted by now but for information purposes I've now managed to get this working save it as a .vbs file you can run it as a startup script. This stops the tray, hotkeys and right click.


    Code:
    On Error Resume Next
    
    Dim WshShell, bKey
    Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
    
    WshShell.RegDelete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\IgfxTray"
    WshShell.RegDelete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\HotKeysCmds"
    WshShell.RegDelete "HKCR\Directory\Background\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\igfxcui\"
    
    set WSHSHell = Nothing
    
    wscript.quit

    i have used an adm file that i think was posted here. Worked a treat with rotating screens.
    Now have discovered a problem.

    The MFL dept use hot keys to do accents in apps. I think my introduction of the adm that stops use of intel hot keys has brocken this for them.
    Theres no point me using intels reg file as we disable right click for students.

    So need a solution that disables the hotkeys without turning off hotkeys.

    not relating to this thread but still relating to onboard intel graphics card drivers / exe's etc. Had an issue that I was having and found a thread on here by someone else where by when putting the machine to standby / hibernation / sleep etc when you wake it back up the resolution would go back to 800 * 600 or the likes.

    msconfig --> startup items --> uncheck igfxpers.exe

    Which is the exe that persistantly checks the resolution etc - not sure why it sets it back to a lower resolution but obviously if its not set to start then it wont be running.

    Do you know where I can find the adm template for this?

    Thanks, Ed.
