  2. Synaptics Fingerprint Device Cannot Start

    Hi,

    Thank you! This really helped. Well for now. Read a part in a forum that the fingerprint problem relapses after a few weeks after a "fix". Here are the specific steps I did for others' reference:

    1. Edited the following in the Local Group Policy Editor:

    • Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Biometrics:
      • Allow the use of biometrics: Enabled
      • Allow users to log on using biometrics: Enabled
    • Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Biometrics > Facial Features:
      • Configure enhanced anti-spoofing: Disabled
    2. Uninstalled the device and driver from Device Manager

    3. Shut down PC and wait for around 5 minutes before rebooting

    4. After logging in, opened Device Manager and look for the "Unknown Device" and then Install Driver Online

    5. Took about 10 minutes to download and install the new driver. Upon finishing, fingerprint will show the same error "This device cannot start. (Code 10)"

    6. Disabled the device and then before Enabling it again, I put my finger on the sensor.

    7. SENSOR IS FIXED

    PS. I think updating the BIOS and all also helped because I did it before doing the steps above

  3. How to change from Microsoft a/c logon to biometric fingerprint logon

    Hi Vince,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I suggest you to enable the Biometrics to pick up the Biometrics setting. This option shall be enable by default. However, I recommend you to follow the steps provided below and check if it enable or not.

    • Press Windows logo key + R key.
    • Type gpedit.msc and press Enter key.
    • Under Computer Configuration, navigate to.
    Administrative Templates Windows Components Biometrics

    In the left hand panel of the Windows, double click on the following:

    • Allow the use of biometrics
    • Allow users to log on using biometrics
    Select enable option and click on Apply and
    OK button.

    Now, restart your computer and follow the instructions provided below.

    After restarting the computer, I suggest you to disconnect and reconnect the fingerprint sensor device and check if the drivers are getting detected in Device Manager.

    • Press Windows logo key + I key.
    • Click on Accounts.
    • Go to Sign in options.
    • The fingerprint option will always be visible if there is a WBF-supported fingerprint reader (and its associated driver) installed on the computer.

    • Download the drivers from the manufacturer’s website.
    • Right-click on the installer and click on "Properties".
    • Click on the ‘compatibility’ tab and check the box "Run this program in compatibility mode for” and select previous Operating System from the drop down.
