Dell :: Fingerprint Reader Driver Needed For Studio (Vista 64bit)
Jan 7, 2009
One of my friend is having Dell Studio 1535 (vista 64 bit). After formatting the system fingerprint reader is not working properly and is asking for driver (he used the cd that came along laptop but it is not working).
I also tried to look on the dell website but unable to find proper driver
On my Dell Studio 1735 laptop I have been running with Vista Ultimate x32 since I got it - yes - the <gasp> factory load! Everything worked flawlessly under that factory load. I decided yesterday to install Vista Ultimate x64 after having downloaded all drivers from Dell's website that I needed (made sure to download the x64 specific drivers). After installing, all drivers went in normally, but, the fingerprint reader (even though it's recognized in the control panel and services for it are running) doesn't give me the option of using it to logon to Windows or into any websites or anything else. I tried removing and reinstalling the drivers - no change. There is no GUI to enable/disable it that I can find. I've gone through the Program Files folder that it's installed into but nothing showing as an executable.
My new Probook 450 G1 (core-i5) Fingerprint reader is not working in win7-64bit. The problem is that there is a "Validity..." software on the laptop's drivers DVD and it says the fingerprint reader is not available or configured properly but when I remove the original hp fingerprint reader driver and let windows to find a driver for it, the "Validity..." software works but it hangs on the "fingerprint enrolling" step.
Both drivers (hp's and win7's) seems fine in the "device manager" but non of them seems to be working with the "Validity..." software, Do I have to use the "simple pass" software instead of the "Validity..." software?
i got my studio 17 and as soon as i got it i saw a little youtube video on the fingerprint reader and was wondering if it works well cuz i didnt order it with one but it looks pretty cool and fuctional and i am sick to death of typing in passwords if it is all its cracked up to be is there any way i could buy one and install it myself? thank you for your replies.
I'm looking to get a new laptop and wanted to get another Dell Studio 17, but I was astonished when I saw that this model apparently no longer comes with a fingerprint reader? That's enough to make me not want to buy the laptop.
Does anyone know why they got rid of it? Was it too problematic? Customer service was suitably unhelpful during the online chat...
In the GUIDE [Clean Install Guide (works for 32-bit or 64-bit) there is said, that I need to download Intel Chipset Driver/INF Update Utility and Turbo Memory Driver from provided links, but in my manufacturer's page [Acer 8930G] I have Intel_AHCI_v184.108.40.2062 and Intel_Robson_1.6_v220.127.116.114.
The question is: - do I install all four of them? - do I install the first two? - do I install the second two?
I have a Pavilion dm4- 1160us. Ever since I upgraded from windows7 to windows8,the fingerprint reader has refused to work. Is ther some driver/software I need to get to make it work with my new windows8?
I had Vista 32bit on that notebook and bought 4GB RAM and 320GB WD Black Edition 7200rpm hard and tried to install Vista 64...
First mine hard drive was not seen by install DVD with message that CD/DVD driver is missing (I am sorry machine is not with me now so I can not write messages I got exactly, but I hope that somebody who has this problem understands me)… I thought it is SATA problem so downloaded newest matrix driver, extracted and put on USB…
I've just completed a full clean install of Win 7 on my Dell Studio (1737) laptop. I can't seem to find the correct fingerprint driver to download. I'm using win 7 x64.I can see the AuthenTec Inc. AES2810 Driver under device manager and it says it's working.I have the digital persona software installed and it tells me the fingerprint reader is not installed or can't be detected.
i had to reinstall XP OS on my XPS M1530 machine. the previous nVidia driver(which was working perfectly b4 reinstalling) seems not working well as i have got couple of times BSOD problem.
then i have tried three different version which r 180.84,185.85_notebook_winxp_32bit_whql, 186.18_desktop_winxp_32bit_english_whql. none of them r good cause i can defference the video quality of the movies.
presently i reverse back to the nvidia_gfgo_17637_xp32, it seems bit better than those others but still i m not happy with the video quality.
i have been trying to figure this out for a week with no luck and even no luck through dell.
I have a new latitude e6400, i originally set my fingerprint, then decided to clean install vista 64 bit, after tons of problems, i then abandoned the effort. Went back to the original vista business 32 bit, however, everytime i turn on my computer, during pre-boot it asks me to scan my finger to get access to my computer, i just want to disable it, but it will not let me, i went into security setting in dell control point, and in that funky embassy software, i cannot find a way to disable the finger print reader, i dont want to uninstall just disable, any insights?
I just received my E6400 from Dell today and setup the fingerprint reader. I noticed it only works when I boot up the notebook and then I scan to get to the windows login screen.
I was wondering If I can set it up so that I scan to login to windows rather than typing in a password. I was also wondering If I could configure it to login to websites for things such as email since I know you can do that with Windows Fingerprint Reader.
When I ordered my E6400, it said on the Dell configuration pages that it would have a UPEK fingerprint reader. I am quite sure I got another fingerprint reader since it says "Broadcom USH CV w/Fingerprint Swipe Sensor" in Device Manager. When I look closely at the quotes I got from the Dell sales guy it doesn't say UPEK anywhere on the E6400 quote but it does say UPEK on the E6500 quote.
Does the E6500 have the same (non-UPEK) fingerprint reader?
Is it possible to get the E6400 with a UPEK fingerprint reader?
I would like to have a laptop with the UPEK fingerprint reader since I ordered a Dell USB UPEK fingerprint reader with my laptop that I intend to use when the computer is in the docking station. The USB UPEK fingerprint reader doesn't work with the fingerprint software on my E6400. I am not 100% sure it will work even if I would have the same brand of fingerprint reader in the laptop but I think it should increase the chance a lot.
This is my first laptop with a fingerprint reader. I dont know much about them but would like to start using it. I cant find much documentation about it other than the Embassy Security Center software but there is a lot to that software (at least thats new to me).
Is this what I need to use for using the fingerprint or password for logging on my computer? What all are you people doing with yours?
My old xp laptop had a password for windows log on but that was much simpler to set.
I reinstalled windows on my laptop, and I go to re enroll my fingerprint with the fingerprint reader. The Fingerprint reader suite says I have no fingers enrolled, but when I go to enroll my finger again, it says the fingerprint is already enrolled. But I can't find it anywhere. I'm assuming the saved fingerprints are saved to the device itself, but I can't seem to import the saved prints.
