    fingerprint scanner


    hp elitebook 8440p i5 4 gig
    This came with win 7 but the drive was trashed by an mbr to gpt utility. deleted all partitions and set it up gpt.
    so I set it for Win 10 preview (wrong flash drive) . win 7 number worked and its activated.
    I can't get the fingerprint scanner to work though it turned on in the bios and shows in
    the device manager.
    No help from hp the sign in options in settings says there is no compatible device.
    Any Ideas?

    :)

  2. Fingerprint Scanner Not Working

    Hello Gary,



    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Community.

    To resolve this issue try the following steps:




    • Have you updated the driver for the Finger Print scanner? If not, check on the manufacturer’s website (HP).

    • Check if installing the latest driver of the fingerprint scanner allows you to login using a Microsoft Account?


    This issue might occur due to driver incompatibility since upgrading to Windows 10.



    If you have the raw executable file of the corresponding driver for the validity sensor, I would suggest you to install the downloaded driver file in compatible mode with Windows 7 or 8. Refer to the following steps to do so.




    • Right click on the driver, and click on Properties.

    • Go to the Compatibility tab.

    • Check the box for Run this program in compatibility mode for:

    • Select Windows 7 in the list of Operating systems.

    • Click OK.

    • Double-click the driver file to install the driver and follow the onscreen instructions.

    • Reboot your computer.


    Hope the above steps help.



    Thank you.

  3. 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.

    We appreciate the update that you have provided. Since you have tried the suggestions above and the issue is still the same, we have checked the compatibility of your laptop with Windows Hello. Upon checking, your laptop is currently not in the list. We
    recommend that you contact your laptop manufacturer directly to check for any compatible driver for the fingerprint scanner to work.

    Should there be anything else, do not hesitate to let us know.
