Camera must be of the higher-grade IR type camera.

 

Windows Facial Recognition

 

What to do?

 

Known Solutions:

HP PCs - Troubleshooting Windows Hello Face Recognition

  

Determine your computer model / Product Name

Finding your Product Name, Product Number, or Serial Number

OR

Open Support Home

Enter the name of your device

 

Next...

Windows Face logon requires the high-grade IR camera

 

Hello Face requires that your particular computer include the correct type of camera to support the "Face" feature.

 

Method – Use PartSurfer to check the components in your computer

 

PartSurfer might be able to tell you exactly which parts came with your computer.

  • For best results, use the Serial Number for your search
  • Reminder:  Do NOT post private information (including serial number) here on the Community)

 Open PartSurfer

  • Select your Country
  • Search for your computer / printer / device >> See HINT
  • Need Help?  Tab Self help > find and open the User Guide and FAQ

How to use PartSurfer:

  • Select your region / country - PartSurfer must know your general location
  • Enter your device Product Number , Serial Number, or Part Number in the Quick Search box
  • HINT: To see a system-specific list, replace the Product Number with your device Serial Number

Look the results for “WEBCAM”

NOTE:  Some newer models may list the device as “camera”

 

Method - Check your computer to find the type of camera

 

Control Panel > icon view > Device Manager 

Open Category Cameras

 

Method – Check Settings for “Windows Hello Face”

 

Settings > Accounts > Sign-in Options

If Windows Hello is not available, you will see a message:

Windows Hello Face
