Scan for Viruses
Sudden, unexplained computer issues are commonly caused by a virus infestation. These sneaky programs secretly install themselves on your system and alter the way the machine functions and responds to commands. Eliminate any hidden malicious programs by running a deep scan to find and destroy unwanted programs. You may need to perform a restore or recovery action on your system afterward to replace corrupted files with the correct versions.
To determine whether your non-functioning F5 key is due to a software issue or faulty hardware, connect a separate keyboard to your Pavilion. If the F5 key works on the external keyboard, the problem with your Pavilion's F5 key could be physical, such as a dirty key or spilled liquid. If the F5 key does not work on the external keyboard either, the problem likely lies in the software. Make sure that your operating system files are up-to-date to encourage proper communication between the keyboard and motherboard.
A keyboard key can become non-functional if it cannot make contact with the proper sensor beneath it, such as from accumulated debris or a spilled liquid. Dust, hair and lint can collect beneath and between your Pavilion's keys, which can interfere with proper contact when the layer becomes too thick. Sticky residue left behind by sugary liquids, such as soda or juice, can cause the key to stick, preventing the computer from registering the press. Thoroughly clean the area beneath the F5 key by gently prying the key off and using a cotton swab and rubbing alcohol to remove any dirt or residue.
When you start your Pavilion, numerous other programs automatically start with it. Any of these programs could cause the F5 key to become non-responsive. Starting the Pavilion in Safe Mode will load only the essential operating system files and drivers, and if the F5 key works while in this mode, your problem most likely lies with an installed program or hardware device. To enter Safe Mode, restart your laptop and press the F8 key immediately. You'll enter the "Advanced Boot Options" menu, where you can use your arrow keys to select "Safe Mode" and press "Enter." If your F5 key still does not work, you may have a problem with your operating system files.

It had to be sent in for service. Best Buy said it was a hardware issue after their diagnostics came up with nothing.
Basically it would act like it was shutting down, hibernating or whatever and about 15-20 seconds later, it would re-boot or resume windows.

SOURCE: . screen orientation not working
what exactly is it, is it you screen which is rotated, if it is i would suggest you should go to control panel, nvidea control. there should be a menu on the side, in the section display there will be rotate screen, you can adjust your rotation there or any other screen settings, hope this does solve your problem.
