    Hi Firos,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community and thank you for your interest in Windows 10.

    I understand the inconvenience that you are experiencing. I will definitely assist you.

    This issue could occur due to the Sensor driver is outdated. Let’s try simple troubleshooting steps and check if it helps in resolving the issue.


    • Press Windows key + R and type
      devmgmt.msc
      and hit the Enter.

    • Go into Device Manager and click on Biometric device
      to expand.
    • Right click on Validity Sensors and click on update the sensor driver.
    If the issue still persist I suggest you to go to the computer manufacturer and download the latest updated sensor driver and install the same. Visit the below link

    Note: Code 31 error usually displayed due to updated device driver is not installed on the computer.

    Hope this helps. Post us with the status we will be glad to help you.
