Hi, HP Support Assistant advises that the above driver is available to update. When I attempt update I'm continually advised that it's failed although it doesn't advise why. Any recommendations please?

Hi@Steve_P3,

 

Welcome to the HP Support Community! I'd like to help!

 

I see you are experiencing issues with the HP support assistant failed Synaptic Secure Pad Integrated Fingerprint Sensor Driver update.

 

I have a few recommendations 

  • Restart the notebook. Uninstall HP Support Assistant in Control Panel, Programs and Features. Right click HP Support Assistant and select Uninstall. Restart the notebook. 
  • Next, download and install the latest version of HP support assistant from HP.COM
  • For further help please click on this link

Hope this helps! Keep me posted.

Hi Dilip_18, the solution you suggested has merely provided a path to obtain the latest version of the HP Support Assistant software, which I think was the version I already had.  Anyway, I still uninstalled and re-installed as you suggested. The problem I report above still remains however. When I tried to install the latest fingerprint sensor driver it, again, failed. The update is still showing as 'available' in my HP Support Assistant main page.

 

Any further suggestions?

 

Tks
