Fingerprint Reader Problem

Hi guys,


The fingerprint reader of my HP Pavilion dv6-3150SA is not working. The laptop is brand new and it never worked. It says reader not connected/detected. I freshly installed the driver and software again. However, the main problem is, that the device doesn't even show up in my device manager.


Any suggestions?


Thanks a million!
