Thinkpad X1 Yoga Gen 3 Biometric sesnsor (fingerprint reader) missing from device manager

Q: Thinkpad X1 Yoga Gen 3 Biometric sesnsor (fingerprint reader) missing from device manager

Hey guys and gals, The sensor had been hit or miss from day one, when it worked it would sometimes take 3 presses before registering correctly. I've been using these kinds of sensors for years on my phones so I was suprised at how much effort it took to get it to work. It often wasn't avaliable to me when the laptop came out of sleep mode, or if the screen had been locked. One day last month it stopped working completely. It isn't being detected at all in the device manager, unless it's under a differnt name now. I tried restoring from factory and seeing if I could get it back. After running all the Windows, driver, and firmware updates, it's still not present in the device manager. I went in the BIOS and checked to see that the fingerprint sensor was enabled. It was, and then I tried to delete any fingerprint data, but there wasn't any. So I'm wondering, has anyone else has had a similar issue and if there's a way I can fix this without having to RMA my otherwise kickass laptop? Maybe the senseor is loose? Should I open her up and make sure everything's tight? I haven't unbuckled any of her fasteners yet, but if it could save me a month of being computerless while she's in the shop, I'll gladly try it. Cheers

Hello,  I am currently trying to enable Fingerprint verification on T450s system with windows 10. I tried to implement fingerprint through ThinkVantage Fingerprint Software 6.0.0. But it failed to enrol user. Later I searched for Biometric Device in the Device Manager, but could not find any. Does anybody experience this problem? what is the solution?

Hi all, I have a Thinkpad  X1 Yoga 3rd Gen. WIndows Hello works fine with the camera, but I do not see any settings in the Windows Hello Settings app for configuring the Fingerprint reader. The device has a fingerprint reader. I am sure the fngerprint reader worked fine when I purchased the device. I performed a full device reset as I was having issues with battery performance (now cured), but the fingerprint option is still not available. Any thoughts?

This is probably really obvious, but I recently purchased a new laptop with a Fingerprint reader. It came with a fingerprint reader (an AuthenTec AES2501A), and Windows installed all the drivers for it and stuff, and it came with this little program to "learn" your fingerprint for each finger (which I went through), but I was hoping you could actually "do" something with it, LOL!

Is this feasible?

Thanks.

Hi: You need this software for the fingerprint reader to work... HP Client Security Manager provides enhanced Windows login and website single-sign-on capabilities. Security Manager is also the host for HP Client Security plugins, and therefore should be installed before other Client Security modules. This package is provided for supported models running a supported operating system.  ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp65501-66000/sp65637.exe

Because of a virus, I recently had to reinstall Windows 7 Professional 64-bit. I have gotten everything else working except the fingerprint reader.I have installed the Validity Fingerprint Reader driver from the Dell Support site. The fingerprint reader shows up in the Device Manager. However, the Biometric Devices applet doesn't appear in the Control Panel.
I tried letting Windows update detect the fingerprint reader. It installed a driver for a Synaptics device. This was enough to get the Biometric Devices applet to appear in the Control Panel. However, when I tried to configure the fingerprint reader, I got an error saying no fingerprint management software was installed. I have seen lots of posts online directing me to validityinc.com for drivers or the DigitalPersona software, but Validity Inc. seems to have gone out of business. The DigitalPersona software is available on the Dell Support site for my service tag.
I have even tried installing the Windows 8 Validity Sensor Driver for my laptop, but though it successfully installs, it produces the same results.
I don't know what else to do. Any ideas?

I installed Windows 7 Beta on a Dell Latitude D620. Laptop has built in UPEK
biometric fingerprint reader.  Windows 7 did not automatically install a
driver.  I first installed the driver from Dell.com for Vista 32bit. 
Device manager shows driver installed and hardware running, but the
fingerprint reader does not show up in the Biometric Devices screen
from within the Control Panel.  Next, I went to UPEK's website, and
downloaded a driver dated 12/2008.  Same scenario, device manager is
good, but no device showing up in Biometric Devices in Control Panel.  I
removed driver and rebooted machine before and after each attempt. 
Anyone have any ideas?  Or are the existing drivers just simply not
supported currently by Windows 7 Beta fully?  Thanks in advance! - Brian

Hi
 
I don't have that Thinkpad model, but for what I remember in some other model the Fingerprint reader was internally connected to an USB port.
 
You can check some programs like HWInfo and check where is the fingerprint reader plugged to see if Windows recognize there is a deviced plugged on it. It can also be interesting for you to grab the hardwareID to know the manufacturer of it.
 
Which Windows version are you using?
There is also some fingerprint drivers on the Yoga 260 support site for Win10 and Win7.

The fingerprint reader on my ThinkPad L380 suddendly stopped working. I tryed resetting the saved prints in Windows Hello but when trying to register them again the procedure stops at the second step: for the first step of the registration when I touch the sensor it is recognised, but for the second step when I touch it nothing happens. The driver is updated and the system does not register any problem. Is it possible that the fingerprint reader is physically broken? 

A:Fingerprint reader stopped working (ThinkPad L380)

The circuitry might have failed.  I would first try to reset everything:
 
1) Turn off fingerprint option in windows hello
2) Boot into BIOS and erase fingerprints (under security menu)
3) Uninstall the fingerprint reader under the device manager
4)  Reboot and let it find new hardware 
 
You would then need to re-register the fingerprints
 
If that doesn't work, I would assume a hardware problem

Hi, I bought the X1 Yoga 3rd Gen three months ago and my fingerprint reader got problems these days. First, it couldn't recognize my fingerprint very well and I need to use the PIN sign-in every time. Then, I tried to reset it but I could not add a new fingerprint after I removed the original fingerprint. At the beginning, it just told me to touch the sensor again and again but nothing happened. I tried several times (even restart, update the drivers and try the drivers in old version) and it told me there was something wrong and I needed to try it later. Finally, it told me that the fingerprint reader is disconnected.

So, I've gone through this cycle several (too many) times over the month of owning this laptop. I'll save several fingerprint profiles (the first 2 fingers on each hand). But whenever I try to log in and happen to "misfire" with my finger and get the alternative login prompt, I find that I can no longer use that particular finger any longer in futire attempts, as if it's chosen to "forget" that profile. But I can use any of the other fingers I've saved just fine. Problem only seems to be corrected by resaving the "forgotten" finger as a new profile again. I honestly may be assuming incorrectly that this is initiated by a "misfire" (and by that I mean not landing my finger precisely on the sensor, picking up too fast, whatever). It might be that the attempt didn't cause the profile to be lost, but that it was lost for some other reason and the attempt was just the first failed attempt. All I know is that it happens.

This is the second major problem with my X1 Yoga. Not only does the touchscreen driver crash "all the time" but the fingerprint reader does not operate about 30% of the time. Not sure what the cause/effect is because it's not consistent. For instance the light above it sometimes comes on and you can unlock the device. Other times it doesn't and it either works or doesn't. So the light is not consistent with it being ready to unlock. Other times perhaps from sleep or screensaver having locked the machine the only way in is via the password.  As suggested by Leonvo support I installed the latest drivers. But it's made zero difference.http://support.lenovo.com/gb/en/products/Laptops-and-netbooks/ThinkPad-X-Series-laptops/ThinkPad-X1-...
