Glad to have you back.:)

 

Looks like that due to the lack of complete drivers for Win10, the finger print is not working with Windows Hello. What's the laptop model no? This link will help you to find the model no: http://hp.care/2bygf7l

 

Cheers!

I found an HP softpaq update to make the Windows Hello work.

 

Also, I came across an HP forums post that has been authored by an expert and has helped in fixing the Windows hello. This too might help.

 

Good luck!

Download this from synaptic website and make your fingerprint work for DV-6 or any model maker for Windows 10.
