A:finger print sensor for probook 4530s

Hi: The only suggestion I can offer would be to try the one from the Probook 450 G0. This package contains the driver that enables the Synaptics (Validity) Fingerprint Sensor in supported notebook models that are running a supported operating system. The fingerprint sensor scans fingerprints for use with biometric security applications.  ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp71501-72000/sp71833.exe

Hi Everyone,

I am currently trying to configure the Finger Print login function on an HP ProBook 4730s. Although I have finger prints registered they do not appear to be working at the login screen (e.g.: when CTRL + ALT + DEL is presented on the screen).

Once Windows 7 (x64) loads and a standard keyboard login is performed I am able to access the HP Protect Tools application that allows me to register finger prints. I am therefore confident that appropriate drivers, and software are installed, however I suspect that one or more requisite software packages is not starting prior to logon.

If anybody has any suggestions regarding how to get finger print login working can you please let me know?

Kind Regards,

Hello,I am using HP Probook 450 G1. I can not enable my friger print lock in my pc. I have checked in BIOS setting, It is enabled here. and in device manager it's look OK. I installed Validity Fingerprint Sensor Driver(sp66915) and Hp Clint Security(sp65637). It shows me that "Finger print reader is not connected,  Please connect the reader". I also tried HP simplepass(sp63474) in place of HP cient security. But it didn't find the finger print sensor. I went to a customer service provider, the said me, If I enable this service it may harm my systems hardware and aslo it may totally demage the matherboard. I have searched for this solution on the web but, I didn't find any proper solution. Now, I want to khow how can I use finger print system on PC. And, Is there any probability of damage?  

A:Finger print reader problem on HP Probook

 Well, I can answer one of your questions, enabling the fingerprint reader will not damage your hardware. Think about it, why would the manufacturer put a device which you can't use into the laptop? That 'customer service provider' is either lazy or incompetent or both. Oh and one more thing, this is a user-to-user forum, not Hp's official support channel.

Hi,

I have a Portege Z30-A-183.
First I used it with W7 and I saved 3 fingers in the biometric finger sensor .

After that I updated to W8.1 but I didn't deleted the data of the scanned fingers.

In W8.1 I haved triy to save again the data of my fingers but the software said that it is not possible beacause in the memory of the sensor are the data of my fingers.

I haved read that these data are in a non volatile memory on the sensor.

How I can erase this data?

Thanks

A:Portege Z30-A-183 - Erase Finger data in Finger Sensor

Hi

Yes the fingerprint information is not saved on the Hard Disk Drive (HDD) of your computer but on the certain chip.

Usually the fingerprint has to be removed using the Fingerprint Utility but if this will not work after the new OS installation, I would recommend you to go back to the previous state before changing the system and to use the fingerprint software which was used for fingerprint registration.

Details here:
http://www.mytoshiba.com.au/support/items/faq/386

But in case the fingerprint would not work even using the Win 7 version, I think that only Toshiba authorized service provider would be able to delete the already registered fingerprints.

It seems there are some security tools that must be removed as they are incompatable with Windows 10. MS tried to remove and couldn't do it. He said they were on the mother board and when he tried to remove them they just kept coming back so once again he couldn't do it. He said contact HP and they could do it. Unable to find anybody at HP that can do it. As you can see nobody can do it so I guess it just cannot be done. That is unless some fine person out there has discovered a way to do it.

I have a new ProBook 4540s notebook that I shut down over the weekend. I am not sure if I put it into hibernate, sleep, or what as I am still getting use to it. When I tried to turn it on (not plugged in) I got nothing. So I plugged in the power cord and hit the power button again. All it did was the LED above the cord plug blinked about 8 times and nothing else. I let it "charge" overnight and tried again in the morning. Nothing but a blinking LED. I Googled the problem and it said to take the battery out, unplug, and hold the power button down for 20 seconds. I plugged it back in but left the battery out, and still the same thing - flashing LED. HELP! Thanks.

I've tried with battery only. With battery and power cable and with battery removed and only power cable.

I am using the machine normally and then screen just goes black and power offs - no restart, no hibernation, no shut down. Just instantaneously off.

It's not overheating. Could it be a fan issue?

I don't know - but it's getting quite irritating as I often have many apps open and many files open on each app and takes me 30 mins to get back to where I left off.

A:the touchpad of probook 4540s i5 freezes after sometime

Hello zamsam,

 

I understand that your touchpad will freeze.

 

Do a hard reset.
Turn the computer off.
Remove the power cable and the battery.
Hold down the power button for 15 sec while booth power sources are removed.

This should reset the hardware in the computer.

 

As you power it back on tap the F2 key. This will load hardware diagnostics.
Run the startup test.

This will test all the hardware in the system and detect any problems.

 

If the entire test passes, turn off the computer.
As you turn it back on tap the F10 key. This will load BIOS setup utility.
Press F9 to load defaults.
Press F10 to save and exit.

When the computer boots back up, check to see if everything is working.
