My HP ProBook 440 G2, Finger print reader not working when I upgraded form Win 7 Pro to Win 8.1 Pro. In device manager showing that biometric reader is working properly. But actually the finger printer reader is not reading or senseing. It seems like "dummy" part.
I just bought ProBook 4540s (I7-3632QM)with Product number : H5L54ES#ABV
I installed windows 7 ultimate, I installed all required drivers, in between the wireless network was working and I could navigate the internet but after I installed all required drivers and Device manager seemed fine my Wireless network dose not work and says :
Connected to unidentified Network No internet Access, and cant see my wireless network
I tried the network button (Wifi/Bluetooth) changing the mode from white light to yellow light and both modes still not working....
Just got my Studio 15 today. So far so good. I thought Firefox was not compatible with the finger print reader, so far it's working for me with over 25 passwords already. My only concern so far is the keyboard flex!
I recently have ordered an M1330 but I have been looking at some of the user pictures that do not have the finger print reader. Is this because it is not standard on the laptop and do you need to pay extra? (Im talking about the NZ/AUS version [url] theres no option to include or exclude it like the US site).
Also is it possible to upgrade from the LCD to LED in the future, if so how much?
I have a Compaq nx6325 running Windows Vista Business 32bit and I was trying to get the AuthenTec Inc. AES2501A fingerpint reader to work. I installed the minimal install from the HP Driver page and I was wondering how I could then logon with my fingerprint? Would I have to install some extra software?
I have a HP Probook 4540s Notebook PC. I reinstalled the operating system (Windows 7 Ultimate) recently and installed all the necessary drivers required for the PC. But now as I connect a USB 3.0 hard disk into the USB 3.0 ports ( the left two ports), i get an error message. The message is shown below:
"Device can perform faster : This USB Mass Storage Device can transfer information faster if it is connected to a Super-Speed USB 3.0 Port"
The speed of the data transfer also seems to be very low, in the ranges of 20-30 Mbps.
I'm not sure if I have installed the correct driver for the hardware. As for now, as shown in the Control Panel, I have installed "Intel USB 3.0 Extensible Host Controller Driver".
My Laptop is set up so I have to check my finger print in the Bios before I can long into windows. How can I remove this option? I have done the following
1. I updated the bios to the latest version 2. I have checked ever thing in the bois to find how to remove this option. I can't find it. 3. I want to sell this computer, but can't until I get this issues resolved.
I have recently purchased Vostro 3550 with Finger Print reader. After i updating all drivers and checked in dell diagnostic also. Nothing happen to no response for my reader. I purchased 07-05-02012.It haven't worked while i purchased itself and i updated all drivers
ST MICRO SCREEN DETECTION SENSOR ISN'T COMPATIBLE WITH THIS VERSION OF WINDOWS - ? Wat i need to do for this???????????
I have checked through installing Free fall data protection. it shows nothing.
The Biometric Fingerprint device on my HP Pavilion dv6 laptop is not working. I get the message:
1. The Fingerprint reader is not detected (during start up prior to logging in). 2. Windows did not find any biometric devices on this computer ( when I checked via Control Panel).
I went into this challenge when I reinstalled my windows 7 o/s after I realised I had some corrupted files and so could not install an HP printer on my computer. Unfortunately I did not have the original restoration file so I had to do reformating and reinstallation of the o/s.
I have an acer travelMate 8573 gt and I recently downloaded the drivers for the fionger print reader for the acer website but I can't make it to work because I don't have the acer pro shield where can i get it. How I can use to make my finger print reader to work...
My finger print reader doesn't work the way it used to. It only asks for my finger print when logging on to Windows. At all other times it only asks for my windows password which is very annoying. What's wrong -it used to work fine. I reformatted my hdd and downloaded the latest drivers and programs using the system update program. My finger print reader version is 126.96.36.199. I have a T400 with Windows 7 Pro.
Well I use my own laptop as a admin/standard user I use my standard user account mostly. I remember on my v570 when the user access control came up i had the option and i could type the password or use the finger print. so i was wonder if their is away i could set that up on the thinkvantage fingerprint software so that when the use access control comes up when i'm on my standard user account i could swipe my finger that i use for my admin.
This is my 3rd day since i bought this new HP probook 4540s [Product No. B9A39PA#UUF] and i like it, i made a clean install for windows 7 ultimate x64 and i've just realised that the hp drivers support page dose not has any drivers for the ultimate version, so i downloaded the proffesional drivers, now i have all devices are installed except two devices named unknown device
Problem: Fingerprint Scanner - Windows log in does not give option to log in via fingerprint scanner.
Overview: After installing fingerprint drivers from the HP site and using the HP Protect Tools to successfully enroll fingerprint, I tried logging in via this method but the windows log in screen does not display this option. Device manager correctly identifies and shows the fingerprint sensor - however, the control panel says no biometric devices detected.
Details of what steps I took trying to make the scanner work are given below.
Details of the problem and steps I took to install drivers:
After a fresh installation of Windows 7, I went to the HP driver site to download the latest drivers for Probook 4540s:
I installed the drivers in roughly this order:
1)realtek ethernet controller drivers,
3) the chipset and USB 3.0 drivers (but not the Intel MEI driver)
4) Intel video driver: faced an issue such that drivers were not being allowed to install. After disabling switchable graphics in the bios, I was able to get these drivers to install.
5) AMD video drivers: installed after the intel HD graphics driver - installed but Catalyst Control Center was not being displayed. So I re-enabled switchable graphics in BIOS, re-installed these drivers and CCC was now available.
6) HP hotkey support
7) HP universal camera driver
8) Validity Fingerprint sensor
9) Synaptics Touchpad driver
10) Atheros wifi & bluetooth
11) Jmicron card reader
After driver installation, I installed the HP Protect Tools. After prompting for a PC reboot - which I did - it asked for setup of security etc.. Part of this pocess was the enrolling of my fingerprints - successful. However, upon log off/ restart of windows, an option to log in with the fingerprint scanner did not appear in the Windows log in screen.
I opened the Control Panel, and found there was no biometric devices tab, even though device manager showed biometric device and validity sensor (VFS 491). I then proceeded to uninstall HP protect tools and the validity driver for the fingerprint sensor, then made sure these services were running:
-Credential Manager -Remote Procedure Call (RPC) -DCOM Server Process Launcher -RPC Endpoint Mapper -Windows Biometric Service -Plug and Play
After reboot HP Protect Tools as before would enroll my fingerprints, but again no prompt at windows login came to log in with fingerprint. However, one change after the installtion of [URL] was that in control panel there is now a tab for biometric devices; however, it says that windows did not find any biometric devices installed. An image is attached showing both the device manager and the control panel!
I recently purchased a ProBook 4540S C6Z35UT notebook computer. I love the hardware. It came with Windows 8 64-bit. I never tried Windows 8 before, but I've used Windows 7 a lot. After playing with it quite a bit, I've decided I really don't like Windows 8 at all. The Start screen just gets in the way. I want a standard desktop where I can plop down some common docs I'm referencing, common program icons, etc. The flipping to the neo-Win7 desktop that Windows 8 does is quite lame. If you run a desktop program from the start menu, you flip to the desktop, but then it stays there after that program exits. It's a very "hack" design. The start menu is cute for touch pads ("surface"s) but not really laptop/desktop appropriate, imho.
So my question is: if I purchase a Windows 7 or Windows 7 Pro 64-bit version of Windows, can I install it on this machine and will it have the right driver support? Also, in case something gets messed up, is there a way to create a Windows 8 install DVD for my laptop to get it back to original state?
I upgraded xp to win 7, like we all are going to have to do, but can't get the finger print reader to work. It does show in devices that there is one on the machine. I downloaded the drivers for Vista but they got me nowhere.
I've bought a probook 4540s recently. everything is fine and just I have a problem with its bluetooth. I can't send anything to my laptop via bluetooth. my phone is successfully added to my bluetooth devices & I can send files from laptop to my phone, but nothing happens when I try to send items from my phone to laptop. btw no error message is shown to me.
