  1. Finger Print scanner


    Hi, I have an HP envy 13 laptop with a touchscreen and my fingerprint scanner doesn't appear to be working. I have had it set up previously but the laptop now makes me use a PIN. I've been into settings to try and set up the scanner again but under windows hello fingerprint it just says "we could not find a fingerprint scanner compatible with Windows Hello Fingerprint". It's like the laptop can't find the scanner as the same notice is written under the Face ID option a function which my laptop doesn't actually have. It's not the end of the world but would be nice to have it working again so any suggestions on how to fix it would be greatly appreciated.

    :)
