    To repeat my question from above, I'm reposting this from another thread:
    So, I purchased a broken 64gb via Ebay. I have digitizers from digikey that I'm hoping will bring the dead touchscreen back to life.
    So I'm wondering what anyone knows about the various Win 10 keys you can find on Ebay for anywhere from $10-$30. I hate to pay $100 to put Win 10 on a tablet I payed $65 for. Do these things work, or are they a scam? Can you continue to get Win 10 updates if you use one of these keys? Also, how hard is it to do a fresh install on a AVTN8? A lot of the listings say that you have to do a fresh install of Win 10, which makes me a bit nervous.
    Here's an example:
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/GENUINE-WIN...638024?hash=item25cc8dd888:g:8yQAAOSw-0xYbP4Y
    It's not at all reassuring that the seller doesn't know how to spell "worldwide." *sigh*
    And here's another example, where it looks as though a fresh install is not necessary:
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Windows-10-...668166?hash=item33c8c4bac6:g:M5sAAOSwA3dYXKj2
    And there are also some similar options with more established sellers.
    Let me know if any of you have any experience with this.
    Thanks!

    Can anyone give me advice on fixing a AVTN8 on Win 8.1 that doesn’t have an auto-rotate option? Would it be fixed if I could download the Ivensense G-Sensor driver? I can’t seem to get that driver to install, and I think that’s the problem. Perhaps I’m trying to install it wrong?

    The backstory: I bought a AVTN8 32GB that someone else had more or less bricked on Ebay. After many attempts from different angles, I was able to get Win 8.1 reinstalled on it and then I downloaded the SOC from Asus’ website. I still didn’t have any audio or auto rotate, so I downloaded the audio drivers, which fixed the audio problem. I tried several times to download and install the G-Sensor driver, but I could never get it to take, and I have no idea what I am doing wrong.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    After trying and trying to get auto-rotation to work on Win 8.1 I pushed the AVTN8 32GB to Windows 10, and the auto-rotation magically appeared. Odd, but I'll take it.
