  1. 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.

  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 readers don't work

    Hi,

    Windows seems to treat the P5100 as a swipe sensor and not a touch one. Let's get your device connected, to do that, try following the steps below and see how it goes:

    • Disconnect your fingerprint reader.
    • Uninstall both drivers.
    • Restart.
    • Then connect any of the drivers.

    As mentioned above, the drivers are detected by the system and everything should run smoothly. If you still experience the issue after performing the steps, we advise you to contact your device manufacturer for configuration.
