How do I get the fingerprint reader working on Windows 10

Pavilion dv7 6051ea
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Just upgraded from Windows 7 Pro to Windows 10 Pro. The fingerprintreader has stopped working. I can find the option to set this up but instal is greyed out as no driver available. Cannot find one on any support forum? Anyone else with this problem and sorted it please?

Aug 11. I have been running Windows 10 updates each day since upgrading and today after a reboot the finger print reader started working? and remembered my print as well. I guess Microsoft dropped in a fix for this (which works for me) so maybe something to try?

Which Win10 update finally enabled your fingerprint reader.

I've had to do a reset and updates are current but still not working.

My dv7-6b55dx with Validity fingerprint sensor is up to date A/O 9-9-16 on Win10 and ran hardware troubleshooter.

Still doesn't work.
