Fingerprint Sensor / Forced Reset
If the fingerprint sensor suddenly stops working on your computer
If the computer is not issuing errors but still won’t let you log in,
Consider trying a Forced Reset (power reset).
A Forced Reset is NOT a “recovery” and does not remove your data – this reset merely forces the computer to load the Operating System from disk.
Forced Reset does not harm a healthy system nor does it “fix” problems not related to a clean start.
