I have been working on this for over a year without any results. It is driving me crazy.
My fingerprint reader on my pavilion dv7 is not working. Actually it never worked (or showed any sign of action) since i bought my laptop.
I've tried installing many kind of different drivers and software, updated BIOS etc. Nothing works.
So i decided to call for your help.
HP Pavilion dv7
Windows 8 64-bit
Bought 1 year ago in The Netherlands
p/n: B1X38EA (#ABH)
Help would be greatly appreciated
