Reset fingerprint sensor - Latitude E5470

Q: Reset fingerprint sensor - Latitude E5470

I bought a new E5470 for a work laptop. When initially received I set up a local account before connecting to our company domain.
My fingerprint has been associated with the local account, and so cannot be used with the account on the domain. How to I reset / disassociate my print from the local account and reassign it to the domain account?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

This Latitude E5470 is quite new, but out of warranty, but the fingerprint has never worked properly.
It works sometimes, but mostly not. I've tried re-doing the fingerprint recognition several times, but it keeps telling me that it might need cleaning. I have to put in the pin number most of the time. Its terrible.
My 5 year old Vostro works fine, but this new laptop is really bad - this was an expensive laptop, I'm really disappointed.
It didn't work with Win7 and Win10. 
Any ideas on how to fix this.Should I reinstall the driver (how do I do this?), replace the fingerprint pad - anything else?Thanks

Fingerprint recognition on this laptop is really difficult to use. My old Vostro works quickly and easily, but it has never worked well on this machine.
I have to hold my finger down and press hard, sometimes it doesn't work at all.
I've tried deleting then reinstalling & updating the driver, which has no error message. Tried hardware scan also.
Is this a common problem with the E5470. With this type of fingerprint reader. Or is the hardware just faulty and in need of repair?
I also find that the headphone socket doesn't work sometimes, it doesn't recognise when a headphone is plugged in, and volume continues from the speakers.

Any help appreciated.

hello !

my 'problem':

on my portege (r700-174) i run a win7 (which was preinstalled on that notebook), a win 8.1. and for some tests the win10 technical preview

all the Systems are protected via Password and Fingerprints.

also the win10 test-System (to test fingerprint-Utility within win10)

now i deleted an old build of win10 and made a clean install with the latest build

unfortunately i forgort to unregister the Fingerprint i had registerd with that old win10 - so now this finger can not be used
to be registerd for the new win10 (or any other System)

my question

is there any possibility to completely reset (delete all Fingerprints for all Systems) the fingerprintscanner out from one of my running Systems or to unregister the
Fingerprint for that system, that does not longer exist on my portege ?

thanks for any hints

A:How to reset fingerprint sensor on Portege R700-174?

The fingerprints are stored on the fingerprint sensor and you will need to follow the instructions in this Toshiba document to remove your fingerprint scans.
http://www.mytoshiba.com.au/support/items/faq/386

In case this procedure would not work, only Toshiba authorized service provider would be able to erase users fingerprint related privacy information on the fingerprint sensor flash.

Hi, I'm a happy owner of a Dell E5270 and on The base plate there's a fingerprint sensor. However, when I install the recommended drivers there are no biometric devices. What is visible (in device manager) is Dell Control Vault w/o fingerprint sensor. Is it possible that there is a sensor but that The system lacks the optional fingerprint unit inside the laptop housing? There are no exclamation Marks in the device manager.
Secondly I've found the Dell DW5811E 3P10Y wwan card for the dell e5270 at a bargain price but i would like to know where to finf the cables in the housing? .

Something is weird with the fingerprint sensor. When it works, it works instantly and recognizes my fingerprint right away, no matter which part of the finger I use. The problem is that it's *constantly* forgetting my finger. It'll work fine, then I'll close my laptop and come back in a little bit and it doesn't work at all...fails three times and have to use my PIN. Once that happens it doesn't work again, at all, until I re-enroll my fingerprint at which time it works perfectly again for some time. I end up having to re-enroll once or twice a day. Lenovo Vantage pulled in a new version of the driver package today but it didn't help...the issue just happened again. Anyone know what the cause might be?

Hi Guys,

 It's my first post, i need help with a Latitude E5470, we got it with Windows 7 preinstalled, i load our Windows 10 corporate image on it and encripted using Bitlocker.
 The problem is that the user forgot his Bitlocker PIN and locked the TPM, i got to Windows using the recovery key and decrypted the drive succesfully. Now, when i try to encrypt the drive i got the "The tpm on this computer is currently locked out" message.

 I already upgraded the BIOS to versión 1.4.7, formatted the drive and loaded OS again, restored BIOS defaults/Factory settings, used PowerShell commands but all with no progression.
Thanks in advice for any help.

A:Tpm on Latitude E5470 locked out

The TPM can be cleared by using the Windows administrative snap-in (start-run-tpm.msc).
Note that doing so will clear not only the TPM keys but everything protected by them.

Dear all,
I have a Dell Latitude E5470. It is 13 months old. I'm experiencing a very annoying problem. During the last weeks, as soon as I turn on the PC, the battery led starts flashing orange, very rapidly. Once I'm in Win10, the battery icon reports that the battery charge is 5%, but it is not charging. If I try to turn on the PC without the power supply, it doesn't start at all, as any battery is pugged in.
I tried several solutions I read and found on the forum (remove/add the Microsoft ACPI, turn off the PC and remove the battery, update the BIOS, etc.) but none of these succeded.
The BIOS says that the battery is plugged in, but there is a "communication error" so that the status of the battery cannot be identified, whilst the power supply is correctly identified (it reports "90W"). The ePSA diagnosis ends up with an "ePSA 4300-19 - Alert" that says: "Battery - The battery is not installed" and "Error code: 2000-0131".
Honestly I'm running out of ideas other than send the PC to the assistance: that means tens of days of inactivity...
Regards,
Vincenzo Suraci

Checked for malware / Antiviru, none found.

but for a new machine I5, 4GB ram, the "spinning whell" of microsoft is seen a lot, a lot of "Not responding" errors too.
what else should i check,? even turning off visual effects its still handling like a brick.... 

A:Latitude E5470 running very slow

The Dell diagnostics may reveal something - F12 at powerup.  Also, 4G of RAM is relatively low for a 64-bit system - you may be seeing a lot of virtual memory use, and if that's on a conventional spinning hard drive, is likely the system bottleneck.

Guys,
We just received a batch of E5470's but we are unable to encrypt them with Bitlocker.  We will be installing Win7 64bit.  The BIOS is at 1.12.6.  We will PXE boot and image these from a MDT.
In the BIOS, we select:
Boot sequence - UEFI (uncheck onboard NIC ipv4 and 6)
Advanced boot options - Select "enable legacy option ROMS" and "enable attempt legacy boot"
Integrated NIC - Check "enable UEFI network stack" and "enabled with PXE"
SATA Operation - AHCI
Security TPM 2.0 - "TPM On"  "SHA-256"  "Attestation Enable" "Key Storage Enable" and of course "Enabled"
Secure boot enable - "disabled"
MBAM gets loaded during the image.  When we login and attempt to enable bitlocker, it fails to encrypt every single time. 

At the first login after the image, the TPM does show in device manager as "Broadcom USH" with an exclamation point.  After running Windows Updates and rebooting, it'll show as "Trusted Platform Module 2.0".

Does TPM need to be at 1.2 instead of 2.0?
Could someone please post the exact steps in order to get this enabled?

Hi ,
I am having problems installing our corporate version of Windows 7 Enterprise.
I have four new E5470 Laptops, all without an internal CD/DVD drive installed.
When loading Windows 7 Enterprise from either an external USB connected CD/DVD Rom drive, or from a USB 3 stick, the installation commences as far as letting you change the language set from US to UK English but then bombs out after this.
It comes back with the error "No device drivers were found. Make sure that the installation media contains drivers and then click ok". 
I have downloaded and installed all the drivers from the Dell web site for this model laptop onto the installation USB 3 stick but it still does not see and let you select them. Or if you plug in another separate USB stick or if you burn the drivers to CD and change the disk in the external drive unit.
It seems to be because these 'drivers' or whatever files are required, need to be slip streamed into the installation routine.
I have four of these laptops in total, all brand new, and the fault happens on each.
Windows driver problem? 

A:Latitude E5470 - Win 7 Installation - No Drivers

If I understand your situation properly, we're in the same boat. Basically I received a laptop with the 7 pro install on it directly from Dell and wanted to install 7 enterprise by using a bootable USB.
Due to the age of the win7 ent installer, a lot of new dell systems are coming with usb hubs which can't properly read an external drive without the USB3 driver being manually installed during the process. Since the problem is that it can't read the USB, you can't put the drivers on the USB. My solution was to put them onto a partition on the internal drive and install them from there. Once that was done (and the installation media was in the USB on the right side, as the back would still not recognize it?), I hit the rescan and the OS installation went forward without issue.
If you want to actually solve your problem to avoid this in the future, you could potentially import the USB drivers into the bootable .wim through use of the DISM tool, but my first attempt resulted in a frozen installer so I didn't bother. I have had the same issue with a few new Optiplex towers, so it might be worth it in the future.

At my employer we have experienced several issues with the TPM disappearing from device manager.
This causes us to not be able to reactivate bit-locker.
We would image the device with Windows 7 Enterprise.
We have had this happen with several machines that did and did not have windows updates processed.
Same with Dell drivers and BIOS processed and not processed.
I have run HWINFO tool and it lists the TPM with a memory address of something like 0000FED4000 yet I cannot find that in device manager or msinfo32.
I have went in to the BIOS and turned off the TPM and turned it back on and activated it.
I have reloaded the BIOS firmware.
If we re-image the laptops the TPM shows up in the device manager as expected so I do not believe this to be a problem with the motherboard.
Oddly enough though we have had motherboards replaced and the TPM shows up.
I don't feel that replacing the motherboard is the solution to this issue as we can restore functionality with a re-image or reload of the OS from scratch. But that doesn't satisfy the risk of the issue rearing its head again.
I have searched for weeks to find a solution to this problem but I have come up short.
I am certain others are having this issue.
With all the drivers processed and windows updates processed it does not resolve the issue.
What do you think I am missing?

I thank you for taking the time to review this.

We use a script in SCCM OS Deployment to assign PC name based on a WMI query of the BIOS SerialNumber.  This works for all of our earlier models, but not on the E5470 so the resulting PC name is MININT-something and it has to be manually changed.  Once the OS deployment is finished, running a WMI query from the command line (wmic get bios serialnumber) properly returns the value that should have been detected during the OS deployment.

Are there any chances it's not motherboard broken a few months later after the warranty has expired?

Hi lw2525,
When you say no audio controller in BIOS, are you referring to the Device Information section under System Information? If so, can you try entering the diagnostics (press and hold Fn whilst powering the system on) and running the speaker test? If there is no sound from that, it's not looking too good I'm afraid.
