@ahmedelshater

Thank you for posting back. 

 

I appreciate your efforts to try and resolve the issue.

 

I have a few troubleshooting steps we could try to fix the issue:  
Try these steps:

Step 1: Uninstall and reinstall the IR camera driver

Step 2: Remove the Face Recognition and PIN sign-in settings

Step 3: Clear the Trusted Platform Module (TPM)

Step 4: Add a PIN and set up Face Recognition

Step 5: Perform a system reset ( follow the link: https://support.hp.com/in-en/document/c05873680 in order to complete the troubleshooting steps) 

 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.
