  1. Fingerprint reader not working after windows update.


    My windows was recently updated and after which fingerprint reader stopped working. "We couldn't find a fingerprint scanner compatible with Windows Hello fingerprint." I tried updating the driver from the device manager but it says the best driver for this is already installed then going to windows update. everything is already updated. I tried resetting my system and uninstalling updates. But none work. once or twice the options do appear functional i.e. at two instances system asked me to setup hello fingerprint but wasn't successful and ultimately the error occurred again. And in detail of biometric driver: Synaptic WBDI fingerprint reader SPI-093 says "Device ACPI\SYNA8007\1 requires further installation."

  3. Fingerprint Reader not working on Windows 10

    I can't troubleshoot my device if it isn't allowed to load. I have attached images displaying my device and the most recent update attempt.

    My fingerprint reader was working when I upgraded to Windows 10, but after a system refresh, it no longer works. I know that I have the correct drivers installed as they are the ones that came with my computer's setup files.

    Something else may be preventing my reader from working. Please clarify Code 31.

    This question isn't answered unless all instances of this problem are put to rest.

    Fingerprint reader not working after Windows updates

    Hi,

    I have a Lenovo Yoga C930-131KB laptop (Type 81C4), and the recent update disabled my fingerprint reader.

    I've tried reinstalling the drivers, and manually updating the drivers from the Lenovo website. No luck.

    Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
