Dell Inspiron 13 7000 Auto rotate lock

The screen orientation will not auto rotate for me when I move my computer in any mode, tent, tablet, or laptop. 

When I pull up the screen icon on the right, it says auto rotate is locked, but it won't let me select it to unlock it.

I've tried restarting it and nothing changes.

Help please!!! Smiley Happy

A third with this issue, which is really annoying when reading comic books on here. How can we resolve this?

Put your device in tablet mode and then go to settings and you will be able to turn off screen lock. It will auto rotate whenever it is in Tablet mode or in "tent" configuration. And when you put it back into laptop mode, when it asks if you want to exit tablet mode, say NO if you want the screen to continue to auto-rotate. If you say YES and exit tablet mode, then the screen lock will come back on and you won't be able to disengage it again until you go back into tablet mode again. I hope that helps.
