Microsoft keyboard with fingerprint sensor

Q: Microsoft keyboard with fingerprint sensor

I'm currently using the M/S Keyboard with fingerprint sensor, however, it does't 'come alive' during the boot process until the welcome screen comes on. I cannot access my bios nor type any commands during boot up.

Has anyone had any experience with this keyboard? If that's just what it does, I'll replace.

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.)

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? .

Thx!

I am using win 8.1 (fully updated) and used to have working fingerprint logon. Now it stopped working. Suddenly I can not use Lenovo Fingerprint Manager Pro (V 8.01.42(x64)) anymore. Whenever I try to start the application, it asks me for my Windows password, but then responds - "The device is not connected to the computer. Please insert the authentication device." OTH, in the device manager, under Biometric devices, I see Synaptics FP Sensors (WBF) (PID=0017) Also windows fingerprint sign-in option is greyed out. Any hints, what can I check?

2.  Change to "Security" menu
3.  change to "Fingerprint" item
4.  Choose the option for "Reset Fingerprint Data" - what happens?
5.  Press F10 to save and exit
6.  Try to enroll fingers again - what happens?

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?

It says its not supported in W7 anymore your best chance is to install the vista 32bit driver if your running W7 32 bit or nuke it (new keyboard):

To install a driver OR program in compatibility mode - right click the setup.exe file - click properties - click compatibility - check run in compatibility with vista/xp etc - check run as administrator - leave the rest blank. Start setup.exe and install.

Okay, I've been using this keyboard for a few months now. No problems whatsoever. Last night before I shutdown, windows promted me to install updates and shutdown. So I did. The next morning, I turn on my computer, and my keyboard doesn't work. My fingerprint reader works fine, just cant press any keys. I've tried looking in the Device Manager and there is no clue of my keyboard in use, besides the "Fingerprint Reader". I tried calling Microsoft and emailing them, and they rejected me both times. I've also tried uninstalling Intellitype Pro and reinstalling it, no luck. Can anyone help?

Hi!Here is my first post. it's related to fingerprint sensor. Machine is a T570 "out-of-box" with Win 10 PRO. I ran MS Windows updates then Lenovo updates through Lenovo companion program.I notice after applying proposed fingerprint driver (Synaptics Metallica MOC touch FP driver - V5.2.3515.26)  sensor doesn't work anymore ... To log in I'm forced to use the PIN code or password way. Sensor no longer recognizes my finger. In fact it is the sensor itself that is no longer functional (no light). Obviously before I tried to configure the sensor again but without success ... Using the previous driver through drivers manager, everything works again (5.2.3512)Has anyone had the same problem? Thanks in advanceRegards

Hi all! I just got my 6st gen Carbon X1 - beautiful device, I'm loving it. BUT! Out of the box the fingerprint reader didn't work properly. Kept disconecting. So I updated WIN 10 and installed all the drivers plus the BIOS. Now, under the Device Manager, it just says "This device cannot start (Code 10)". I tried reinstalling the drivers, manually and through Vantage - no go. I keep reading that this turns up as a problem sometimes, but most people solved it through driver reinstalls. Doesn't work here. So, before I return it - any ideas? Thanks.

I then re installed the lenova drivers and I'm having no luck repairing. I then ran the lenovo diagnostic, all passed until I got to Accelerometer interactive test it failed (9s)??? the error is unexpected values read from the sensor.and Gyrometer interactive test failed (39s)?? unexpected values read from the sensor..

I have two week old X1 Yoga (20FQ) and the fingerprint sensor seems to work very unstable. It worked fine for a while and and suddenly in Windows 10 login it didn't work at all. It seems to read multiple times as when I put my finger close to sensor it immediately gives "Too many failed attempts" message and asks to login with PIN-code. I removed the device and re-installed the latest drivers from Lenovo support page and it worked again for two days. And now again I cannot login using fingerprint sensor. As the issue was resolved for couple of days with reinstalling the device, it might not be a HW-issue. Is there any good diagnostic tools available or is there a place to change the sensitivity of the sensor? Many thanks in advance for all the help!

My fingerprint sensor does not work any longer after update to Win10-64 Version 1607. I am using the latest Win10 build, the latest BIOS Version 1.15 and the latest version of the fingerprint sensor driver (Synaptics Metallica Touch Fingerprint Driver) Version 5.1.311.26 from 14.7.2016. Uninstalling the driver completely and re-installing it helped for one reboot to re-activate it, but this is no stable state, the fingerprint sensor is unavailable after the next reboot. Surprisingly the fingerprint sensor is still offered as a logon option, although iinactive. Soon thereafter there is a message during the final stage of the reboot ('there has been a problem...') and it's completely gone and completely gone. Obviously Win10-64 Version 1607 and the fingerprint driver does not like each other. Any solutions available?

IBM Thinkpad, now Lenovo Thinkpad laptops with fingerprint sensors failed, 18 months ago, with Zone Alarm. About a yr after switching to XP's FW, the finger print reader stopped working. I called Lenovo. They determined that the reader was working, but the software was not working. They offered advice, which failed. AND, because the problem was software, the problem did not warrant a visit by an IBM / Lenovo tech.

Windows Settings show that Windows Hello is not available for the device (probably because it can't detect a fingerprint sensor) at all (Image 4).  I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the device.

In fact it is the first step in a lot of HP's logic flows. This does not work every time nor does it solve all issues but it's worth a shot. HP refers to this as a hard reset, remove your battery unplug your A/C so no power is going to the NB hold power button down for 30 sec reconnect and power back on.

Hello dear community! The fingerprint reader of my Yoga 460 is not working properly. When I try to set up my fingerprint in Windows Hello it wants me to swipe my finger at least 20 times while the reader is flashing green and orange in irregular intervals. It looks like when a fingerprint is not identified as correct.I already tried different fingers and cleaned the device. I also tried to install the driver provided on the support page but I think Windows always installs the driver from Windows update as it is considered the latest driver.I am using the latest version of Windows 10 and the name of the device in the device manager is "Synaptics FP Sensors (WBF) (PID=0017)". Thanks for your help! Michael

I really want to use the fingerprint reader on the HP Probook 430 G2, which is a Validity VFS495.The default wat is to use HP's security software, which I don't want to use.Another option would be to use Windows 8.1's built in "Biometrics" feature, but it's not enabled for some reason.Some reading into the issue told me that I need to install a "Windows Biometric Framework" enabled driver, but I couldn't find a working driver for the VFS495.It was suggested on multiple forums to download and use the driver from "http://www.validityinc.com/software/hp/wbf.php", but that link seems to be dead.Is there any other solution that would allow me to use the fingerprint reader without HP's software, or perhaps does anyone have a mirror to Validity's WBF driver?Thank you,-Elad

A:Validity Fingerprint Sensor WBF drivers (without HP software...

After much research, I finally found a solution.The Dell E5440 uses the same sensor, but a newer driver that's WBF compatible.I installed Dell's driver and everything works fine now - the fingerprint sensor is detected by the operating system's native security features without any HP software neccesary.The link to Dell's driver, to anyone interested, is here.

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 have installed HP Protect Tools (latest version from the website) and it doesn't allow me to enroll my fingers. Windows recognises the sensor and says it's working OK, but when I click on Credential Manager in the Security Manager dashboard I only see Windows Password, Sparekey (both of which I have set up OK), bluetooth and PIN.In the admin console I click on Credentials and it shows me an oprtion to "Configure the use of the fingerprint reader" and allows me to set min and max enrolled fingers as well as the sensitivity.However, when I look at my user's Summary pane, Windows password and SpareKey are enabled and green and all the others are grey  with a tilde in a circle (~).Under Authentication I see Fingerprints in the list for both Admins and Users in both Logon Policy and Session Policy panes.Does this mean my reader isn't working? I tried it in the BIOS and it produced a result (which I didn't use).I have also reset it on boot in the BIOS (twice) and that didn't change anything.My driver is the Synaptics FP Sensors v 4.5.307.0 (27/May/2015) the latest on the website.How do I get the sensor to show up in my "Manage your Credentials" window so I can enroll my fingers?

Hello,in bios check if fingerprint is enabled. Bios --> Security--> Fingerprint-->enablethen install the fingerprint drivers.Use client security manager to enroll the fingerprint on your unit. #hpexpertday
