  2. Fingerprint Scanner for x64... Help!!!

    I have tried Microsoft's fingerprint scanner and one by APC (had them at work), neither manufacturer openly supports x64.

    There are no drivers for those. Looked everywhere.

    I was just asking if anyone knew of a model that does dox64, laptop scanners don't count as this is for a desktop.

    I'm just product searching.

  3. Fingerprint Scanner

    When trying to log into my laptop, there is no longer the option to use fingerprint. I checked the settings in 'Sign-in options' and underneath the fingerprint section, is says 'We couldn't find a fingerprint scanner compatible with Windows Hello Fingerprint.'
    This is a new issue as the scanner was working before. Any advice to fix this issue would be appreciated.

    Thanks.
