Dell Latitude XT3 :: Fingerprint Reader - Swipe To Boot Up And Login In One Step

Nov 18, 2011

I recently converted from a Lenovo X220 to a the Dell Latitude XT3. The XT3 is a better laptop minus a couple design choices. That said, there is one feature in particular that I will miss the most....My old X220 fingerprint reader allowed me to swipe with the latop powered down. This action would boot up the PC and log me in. This doesn't seem to work the same on the XT3. Instead, I must power it up then swipe in two separate steps.

Is there a way to get the XT3 to respond to a finger swipe while it is powered down?

HP OS/Software :: SimplePass Fingerprint Reader Not Prompting At Login On Envy 15-j140na

Jan 21, 2015

I have just bought the HP Envy 15-j140na directly from HP. The laptop is fantastic, however I am having a problem with the fingerprint reader. The computer comes with the simplepass software version 8.00.57 already installed.
The problem I have is that once I have set up the fingerprint reader with simple pass, it doesn't prompt me to scan my print during the windows login and i have to log in normally. I have checked all of the settings and it should be set up, however there is no prompt. Just to note that everything else works fine. I can sign into websites on IE no problem at all using the fingerprint reader. It can be slightly frustrating as this defeats the point of having a fingerprint reader.

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: Fingerprint Reader To Login On T44s Startup

Aug 26, 2014

I am a recent owner of the T440s (unfortunately with the LG panel).

I have checked every single fingerprint setting I could find. I also tried older drivers and older versions of the fingerprint manager.

When I start up the machine, I cannot use the fingerprint reader to login. It does start flashing, but no reaction whatsoever. I can only login using my password.

It does work very smoothly when waking from sleep or hibernation. It also becomes active when I want to enter bios. Just not at startup.
Win 7 ultimate 64

Lenovo X240 Series ThinkPad :: Fingerprint Reader Power Up Or Login

Dec 22, 2013

I've got an x240 with bios enabled fingerprint and the latest fingerprint driver/utlity installed, a fingerprint registered and all the options checked for fingerprint to be integrated and boot.
When the laptop is powered off the fingerprint swipe doesn't boot the machine, no LED on it, it's dead. How do I make fingerprint power on work?When the laptop is in sleep mode the fingerprint swipe doesn't boot the machine, no LED on it, it's dead. How do I make fingerprint resume from standby work?When win7 boots and it's at the CTRL+ALT+DEL login screen the fingerprint LED is green, a fingerprint swipe does nothing. How do I get single sign on to work?Only when I manually hit CTRL+ALT+DEL will the Fingerprint graphic then show on screen, at that point the swipe works. How do get the fingerprint to log me in without any manual intervention? The x201 I had previously did all this without an issue.

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: T540p - Fingerprint Reader Not Working Upon Waking From Sleep For Windows Login

Mar 11, 2014

I have a brand new T540P with a Validity fingerprint reader. 
Rougly 80% of the time, the Fingerprint reader is unresponsive at the windows login screen after waking the computer from sleep. It works 100% of the time when booting from an off position, however. Once logged in, it also works 100% of the time. The issue only arises when logging into windows.
Things I have tried

-uninstalling/installing device in device manager and finger print manager pro software
-setting fingerprints through both fingerprint manager pro software (lenovo) OR through the built in windows fingerprint control panel options
-disabling "allow windows to turn off this device to save power" in device manager.
I should note as well that I have another T540P that I ordered as a replacement. Both models experience the same issue.
Is this a platform wide issue affecting all T540P models?

Dell :: Fingerprint Reader During Boot

Apr 30, 2009

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?

Dell :: To All Who Are Unhappy With Latitude/Precision Fingerprint Reader

Nov 30, 2009

This has been brought up before in this forum, but it was as an off-topic discussion on a thread with a different topic. I'd like to bring it to full discussion.

Basically, I'm quite happy with my E6400 but I don't use the fingerprint reader, because that involves using the Embassy Trust Suite.

This means that you cannot use the fingerprint reader for any other uses except logging on at boot and windows logon screen. You cannot use it for your web browser, for example.

Several people have asked Dell to invest in an open API for the fingerprint reader because of this. Dell suggested we opened a thread in their community feedback site, "Dell IdeaStorm", which I did. Here's the link.

Dell :: Latitude E6500 Fingerprint Reader Problems

Feb 7, 2010

I got my Latitude E6500 a few days ago, I'm happy with it (except the lagging ALPS touchpad) but I have a problem with the fingerprint reader (Broadcom USH w/Swipe sensor).

The fingerprint reader is connected and does respond, but the ControlPoint software throws an error if I try to enroll my fingerprint (the error doesn't show up if I don't touch the sensor). If I reboot, the "Broadcom USH w/swipe sensor" is replaced by "Broadcom USH w/o swipe sensor" in the device manager. The swipe sensor is detected again after a complete shutdown.

Dell Latitude E5550 :: Enable Use Of The Fingerprint Reader?

Jan 21, 2015

I've enrolled my fingerprints via the Windows 8.1 PC user settings app.

When I logon to my PC it provides the usual password box to type my password, but if I swipe the fingerprint reader nothing happens. I've registered four fingers, none of them work.

Are there some other settings I need to change to enable use of the fingerprint reader?

I see the biometric device in device manager, and registering fingerprints is no problem, it's just during logon that it's not working.

Acer Aspire V5 :: Unable To Swipe Up From Lock Screen To The Login

Acer Aspire V5 seems to be "stuck" on the lock screen before you go to the login screen.  We are unable to swipe up to get to the next screen.  I tried clicking on FN-7 to see if maybe the screen was locked but it didn't work.  I powered the computer off 10 sec and unplugged .. still nothing..

Dell :: Req- A Step By Step Guide To Remove IDT High Definition Audio In Windows 7

Apr 12, 2010

Hi Friends,

I am writing this new post after getting really frustrated from Googling all through the internet and not finding 1 decent solution.

I have a Dell Studio 1555 laptop and after bearing the pathetic sound quality both from the speakers and external speakers/headphones for months I finally decided to do something about it.

Apparently its not a hardware fault as everything seems to work technically fine but the sound output is really pathetic/high on treble and noise. Theres a word all around the internet that IDT High Definition Audio Codec sound drivers are bad idea and the default ones provided by Windows are much better.

Well i tried to remove, IDT Audio from my laptop permanently but to no avail. There is no option to remove at Add/Remove programs, so i went to Device manager and uninstalled the sound drivers. Upon restarting the PC the IDT audio popped backed in. So, I uninstalled once again and deleted the IDT folder but upon restarting it was back on again. Only that it took 5-6 minutes to install.

Can anyone suggest a way to remove IDT drivers permantly in Windows 7?

Thanks a lot.
Your friendly neighbourhood geek

Do you know how to setup the digital output of the Aspire?

Lenovo ThinkPad L R/SL :: L540 / Win 7 - Cannot Login Using ThinkVantage Fingerprint Software

Jun 22, 2012

I purchased a new L540 running Windows 7 and enrolled a finger.  I can use the fingerprint to unlock but not to login.  I've reviewed forum postings that suggest that I need to Change Biometric Settings, however the are set as "Biometrics On, Allow Users to log on to Windows using their Fingerprints."  I note that the fingerprint software on the L540 is different than my 2 yr old W520, which had a way different interface.

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: Change Fingerprint Login Icon / Picture - Windows 7

May 27, 2014

I've got a fairly new T440s for which I've set up fingerpringt reading. I was wondering if there'd be an (easy) way to change the picture displayed on the welcome/login screen. I'm not talking about the background, but the icon in the middle that is currently a picture of a fingerprint. 
I looked around at other threads and they either referred to editing .dll files (above my head a bit) or some picture in "C:Program FilesThinkVantage Fingerprint Software" which is not a directory on my machine. I'm running the latest version of Lenovo Fingerprint Manager Pro, and nothing in the Fingerprint Manager Pro program files looked persipacious.

Dell :: If You Like The Fingerprint Reader On Your XPS

Oct 30, 2008

I highly recommend the standalone desktop version by Upek.

The cheapest I could find was ($41.08 with 5% off coupon available everywhere).

Mine came with the 5.8.2 version of their software, but the build date of the one posted in the "Upek" thread was a bit higher, so I used that one... ((not so) New Upek Fingerprint Reader Driver)

The reader operates exactly the same way as the one in the laptop (duh? same brand and same software).

If you have encrypted files from your laptop, you can open them on your desktop and vice versa...

Dell :: E6400 Fingerprint Reader

Jul 1, 2009

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.

Dell :: How To Turn Off Fingerprint Reader

Jun 25, 2009

I got an E4300 through work and set up the fingerprint reader at the request of my IT department, but I hate this stupid thing. It never works and I always have to manually override it.

I asked them to take it off, but it's "firm policy" for our laptops to have the reader turned on.

Anyone know how to turn it off? It's controlled through Dell ControlPoint and maybe a proprietary program we have.

Dell :: FingerPrint Reader Driver

Jun 5, 2009

I have tried enrolling many different fingers but the same message is returned. When I installled the driver R173506, I was presented with 4 folders ie x.86vista and x.64vista.

Plus two XP folders. I tried to install from the 64 but an error message was returned.

I eventually installed the drivers from the 86 folder. Just wondering if this is correct? The call centre said I should not be presented with these folder options.

Dell :: Can't Get Fingerprint Reader To Work

Mar 22, 2009

First off, I know the fingerprint reader is not very secure. But since I have a new XPS 1530 with a built in reader, I want to make sure I can use it because 1) it's under warranty & 2) it's cool.

I've read the readers can be quite flaky so if I decided to actually use it to log onto my computer, I want to make sure I will also always have the option to enter a password instead

Dell :: Different Fingerprint Reader In E6400 And E6500

Nov 9, 2008

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.
