    Cannot login with fingerprint keyboard attached after recording a fingerprint

    Thank you. Before trying your suggestion, I'm hoping to hear results from someone who has recorded pins for two accounts and fingerprint for one of them and whether the login process works as intended after restarting. All the while with fingerprint Type
    Cover attached.

    I'd rather not make time-consuming system adjustments without confirmation that the procedure can resolve this particular issue.

    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.
