Need help with an interesting problem...

I have this old and cheap tablet. 

For some reason it's rendering everything inversed and upside down, but the touch screen is still mapped to areas of the screen as if it was functioning as normal. For example if the confirm to shut down button is on the bottom right of the screen, I have to touch the top left/right depending on how crazy the tablet feels like it wants to be.

All I can imagine doing is trying a factory reset.  I don't know how you'd even set it up such that the graphics would be backwards while the touch input remains the same.

The orientation sensor (usually gyro) seems to be tripping up and thinking its being held upside down. Maybe give it a few good slaps on every edge and side of the device, might 'set it free' again to take a proper reading.

Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.


Please quote my post in your reply, so that I will be notified and can respond to it. Thanks.

The text is also render inversed as if you're looking at text on the inside of a window..... 

Also this just randomly started to happen after a reboot.
