    Windows hello Bio-metrics not working because something happened and your PIN isn't available.


    Hi,


    I am running Windows 10 Home on HP Omen-17 with Windows Hello Facial Recognition.

    I am able to set it up. But when I restart or Power down and up again, The log-in screen is blank. I have to put it to sleep and re-enter.

    When I do that, the error comes up saying "Something happened and your pin isn't available".


    Edit:

    I have tried deleting ncg and entering new pin - Did not work.

    I have tried Creating a local account and changing pin there and changing back to admin account - Did not work.

    I have tried editing the \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\System PINLogon file -Did not work.


    I do not have a problem logging in with password. But I want to use the Facial Recognition.


    Please help.

    :)

    Windows Hello Bio-metric Login Failure Detection

    Greetings,

    We are trying to set up Windows Hello in our environment using biometrics (Fingerprint or Facial Recognition).

    We managed to get it to work, but we are facing a show stopper, the failed logins must be recorded/logged, usually this is done with the logon auditing settings.

    Using Windows Hello will only log PIN login failures, while it will not log any biometric failure anywhere.

    DId anybody face such problem or did anybody managed to capture a failed bio-metric login on Windows Hello?

    If this is a limitation from Windows Hello, is there any thrid party bio-metric solutions that can provide such feature?

    Thanks,



    Datacenter Solutions Architect.

  3. Printer isn´t working after latest update.

    After the latest update from Windows, my Canon Pixma ip6600 printer isnt working. In Device Manager it shows up as working properly but when I go to print it isn´t listed as an option in any programs. Troubleshoot suggests it´s a USB 2 printer on a USB
    3 port and that that´s the problem but that cant be since it worked fine before the update. I´ve tried to uninstall and plug it back in but that doesn´t work either.

    windows Hello states it isn't available on this device

    Hi Tom,

    Try few of the troubleshooting steps below and check if you are able to access Windows Hello.

    Step 1: I suggest you to run
    Hardware and Devices troubleshooter
    as it checks for common problems and makes sure that any new device or hardware connected to your PC is installed correctly.

    • Press Windows key from the keyboard, type
      Troubleshooting and select it.
    • Click on view all option on the upper left corner of
      Troubleshooting window.
    • Select the Hardware and Device
      options from the list.
    • Click Next to run the
      Hardware and Device
      Troubleshooter.

    Step 2: Also, I suggest you to update the bio-metric finger print reader from Device Manager and check if it helps.

    • Press Windows + X from the keyboard, click on Device Manager.
    • Right click on Bio-metric finger print reader, click on
      Properties
      .
    • Go to Drivers tab, click on Update driver software.

    Step 3: I recommend you to install all the pending updates on your device and check if it helps.

    Steps:

    • Connect to the internet.
    • Press Windows key and type updates.
    • Click on Check for updates.
    • Under Windows Updates, click on Check for updates.
    • Try to install the updates being shown.
