Re: fingerprint reader not working

hi,

   i tried installing DigitalPersona Personal 3.1.0, but during installation it shows "the system cannot verify that the fingerprint reader is installed.Toset up the reader install the driver from application and Driver recovery disc ".i have earlier tried to solve the problem by restoring factory settings , but it was useless.

i now uses windows 7.On the  devices it shows Fingerprint sensor (some "biometric devices") .When i checked its properties it showed hardware working properly..can you help?

Re: fingerprint reader not working

I had this problem and I cleaned the reader with scotch tape and it worked. I now do it every tow months or so. Just a suggestion.

Re: fingerprint reader not working

Bought the hp Envy, the fingerprint reader worked until about 10 days ago and now I find that the company that has the data is out of business and no support available. HP needs to let us know how to make this feature work again. I presume it will be set up with another software firm. This is a feature sold on this computer and it worked for a week!
