There is nothing to be done from the software side - Windows in S mode only allows you to install drivers or software from the Microsoft Store.

 

Forced Restart might work if the issue is simply a stuck instruction.

 

“Press and Pray” 

Forced Restart / Boot

 

IF a BIOS update is just stuck / stubborn / frozen-in-place half way through the update / boot process,

OR

If there are boot issues that prevent a complete or clean boot of the Operating System,

IF there is not actually anything wrong with the windows installation or the File System,

Then

The following procedure might resolve the issue.

 

 

  1. Unplug everything, including power and all other externally connected components
  2. Press and hold down the power button for thirty (30) to forty (40) seconds
  3. Release the power button
  4. Plug in only basic components needed to start / boot the computer

 

  • Desktop:  Connect Power, wired mouse and keyboard, HDMI to monitor (and monitor is powered on).  Make sure Power is properly connected and all the way plugged in on both wall and machine.
  • Notebook:  Connect AC Power.  Make sure Power properly connected and is all the way plugged in on both wall and machine.

 

 

  1. Switch on the system with power button - Click power and release (as for normal boot)

 

Hoped for Results:

 

  • System switches on, monitor active, mouse and keyboard responsive

 

If the issue was a "stuck" BIOS update:

 

  • Screen shows the BIOS update window with choices:  cancel / update
  • Wait several seconds; stare at it and contemplate actions.  (The process will continue on its own after about 10-20 seconds)
  • BIOS update continues, completes, and reboots the system

 

 

When the system reboots,

  1. Log in
  2. Connect LAN (Ethernet)
  3. Connect other components (USB, external webcam, speakers...)
  4. General housekeeping (checks, more staring at it)

What else?

 

According to the specs, this system did not even come with Windows S mode.

"S" mode Might not be fully compatible with all your installed hardware.  ?? No idea whether this is true.

Switch OUT of Windows S mode (remember, this is a one way journey) > once you are running regular Windows, you have access to the software and drivers in your computer's support website, including the driver for the fingerprint sensor / reader.

 

BEFORE you switch:  Make sure your data is backed up first on OTHER than the computer.

Reminder, this is a One-Way-Ticket:  Once you leave “S” mode, you cannot go back to “S” mode.

IF / When you are running regular Windows, you can try reloading the fingerprint driver.
