  1. Laptop's fingerprint and pin would not work untill I have not updated my windows


    I have a lenovo E470. an average computer for studying. it has a fingerprint reader that works perfectly fine as well as other methods of logging in such as pin and a password. When I have no notifications to updates, the fingerprint and pin work fine but as soon as a windows update comes along they would have "difficulty in logging in". After the update, it starts working again which I assume is that update might have fixed "something" but this has been going for for 1 and a half year. sometimes even when there aint no update notification its stops working and only starts working when an update comes. This is starting to get really annoying so I wanted to ask whether the computer's hardware has any problem or is it the software trying to do something? oh and btw password works every single time but its long. otherwise have no other problem in the hardware and software.

  2. windows 10 fingerprint and PIN setup not working

    I have the same problem. The fingerprint reader in my Dell XPS15 laptop was working fine until today, when Windows updates occurred (I now have Windows 10 build 1703).

    The fingerprint reader stopped working. In an attempt to resolve this issue, I decided to re-do the "Fingerprint" set up, but this does not work. There are 2 cases:

    1) If I remove my PIN, I am then able to perform "Fingerprint setup", but at the end of this process it asks me to add a PIN, but this 'Add' does not work, and I am left without a PIN and without a configured fingerprint.

    2) If I add a PIN first, this works, but if I then try to do "Fingerprint setup", I am taken to a "Windows Hello setup" dialog box. I click "Get started" and I am prompted for my PIN in the "Windows Security" dialog box. I enter the correct PIN, the laptop
    makes a little noise, after which I am left with the "Windows Hello setup" dialog box with just a "Cancel" button.

    If this is due to a corrupted user account (as suggested above) then this must have been caused by the Windows Update. Whatever the underlying cause, it is definitely the Windows Update that is responsible for the sudden fingerprint reader failure.

    Fingerprint scanner not working on my laptop after changing to windows

    My fingerprint scanner/login was working until recently and I am not sure how to fix it. I upgraded to windows 10 on my laptop from windows 8 and then the scanner stopped working. When i go the settings/sign-in options the ability to set-up the fingerprint icon is there, however after i click on set-up and get started I don't get the screen option to input my pin. I have already set-up a pin which i use to log onto my computer. I would greatly appreciate any assistance with this issue. I have attached screen-shots of the three steps.

    PIN and FingerPrint not working

    XPS 15 user having the same problem as those above (fingerprint and PIN not working). Windows Hello was working fine, but a recent update seems to have caused an issue with PIN registration and devices that have the fingerprint scanner. My windows desktop
    has no issues logging in with the PIN, only the XPS 15 laptop.

    Hopefully Microsoft can come up with a fix for this soon.
