  • The sensor validity finger print reader and windows 7

    I recently installed windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit on my dv4t-1300cto. Everything is great except for the fingerprint reader is not working. It appears in the device as manager being installed correctly, but windows and digital persona say its not connected. I tried a few reinstall software and drivers, but nothing helped. And when I look for software, the results are quite rare. HP tries to convince me that I'm using a beta version software and support will appear soon, but is not a copy of version beta what whatsoever. Everybody do what ive made and it sorted?

    the drive model is Vfs201.

    Thank you all.

    Thanks for posting this...

    The driver works for me on a 8570p here, although I had to foce it a little...

    I've upgraded an install of Windows 7 (not original) to Windows 10 and decided to try the new build-in OS support sensor. On Win7 I didn't use it because you have to installed the HP tools and it was more bloating, so I'm comfortable with... of course the problem is to get the drivers... Windows seems to have installed a driver that is over 2 years old and seems not even compatible with the OS API footprint. I'm not entirely sure if Win10 is the same as using Win7, but in any case, updating the driver did not find a newer version which is compatible with the BONES of characteristic fingerprints.

    I downloaded and installed the version that lucadebe posted (link removed for error in the link). (Note that the Setup program seems to disappear all of a sudden, it's normal I think, there is no that add the driver of windows, it does not actually update the device).

    I rebooted, but unlike others that wasn't enough in my case. The reason was that the shift driver does not actually list the VFS491 as a compatible sensor...

    So basically, I had 2 options:

    1. use the driver (from lenovo) published by the creator of the thread that is accredited as a Win10 compatible, but do not officially support my sensor.

    2. use an old (but still relatively recent; a few months old) driver (from lenovo) that supports my sensor, but is not certified as compatible Win10. There are several versions to choose from here, although not RECOGNIZED HP...

    The first driver lists the new probe of VFS495 (mine is VFS491), so I thought I could force and see if it works, rather than use a somewhat older driver (Lenovo) are not not as compatible Win10.

    I went into the Device Manager and open the properties for the biometric sensor. On the driver tab, I selected "Update driver"-> "Browse local dirvers"-> "Let Me Choose from a list of drivers for devices on my computer.

    Then, because the new driver does not actually list my compatible sensor, I had to uncheck "Show compatible hardware".

    If you use the provided HP driver it will by default have a driver selected in manufacturere "Validity Sensors, Inc.". They were acquired by Synaptics, so the new driver will be available under "Synaptics PS sensors". I installed in fact a number of more recent drivers, but one displayed above should be included amongst the "Synaptics PS (WBF) (PID = 003d) sensors '." Select it and click next to install...

    After installing the new driver, open the Sign In options screen suddenly showed a header additional 'Windows Hello' with a button to add a fingerprint...

    So far, works like a charm.

    @PeerOne: I would like to get the driver from the HP site with the game of the right driver... IF HP has bothered actually updates driver. As is the case, the only recent drivers for the VFS491 are available through lenovo.  I installed the HP Softpaq Manager... While the application itself got an update for Win10, only "driver" always updated through it is the BIOS. Everything else is old...

    I find it particularly disappointing because they are generic drivers provided by Synaptics... manufacturers have simply repackage the... but even that is too much effort, it would seem.

    Also, considering windows 7 can switch itself to windows 10 in place, there will be many people who will need drivers compatible win10...

    It has saddened my we rely on another manufacturer provide us drivers for HP products... Lenovo is always provide drivers for laptops that are older than mine, even drivers for newer operating systems...

    Will be probably considered as when we need to replace our phones current...

I installed the drivers for the sensor, but windows has also updated the driver as well! under Device Manager, it also indicates the sensor ready to employment (biometric devices - AuthenTec Inc.

  • EliteBook 840 G1: Validity Sensor fingerprint reader is not listed in biometric devices

    I received an Elitebook 840 G1, tried to turn on the fingerprint reader, but it was not acknowledged.
    Control Panel/biometrics devices, there is no device, although the "Validity Sensor" Device Manager is listed, the pilot seems too. I installed HP ProtectTools Security Manager, where I can find the footprints of the option, but to logon Windows is always Username/Password the only option to log on the system.
    Check the BIOS, fingerprint logon is enabled. Tried to uninstall Validity Sensor and then reinstall it, didn't work.

    OS: Win7 (x 64)

    Thank you in advance!

    See you soon,.


    In the meantime, I found the solution:

    I've updated HP Client (sp63509) Security Manager, opened the program, registered my fingerprints and checked 'Windows logon security' at home/Advanced Settings / Security Features.

    It finally works, I can not connect with my fingerprints.
    (Again, under control panel / biometric devices there is no item listed)

    See you soon,.


  • Tecra M9 - reader of fingerprints and BIOS password

    I want to disable the fingerprint reader and bios password at startup of the computer.
    I already uninstalled upek protector suite ql, but at the start, I'm still prompted to slide my finger.
    I've seen and followed the instructions in "toshiba passes: definition and suppression (BIOS passwords, supervisor and Windows)", but I still have to enter my password to start the computer.
    What should I do?

    In the field "Enter new password" press only in order to remove the old drive HARD password... Repeat this in the field "confirmation"...
    Then he must change the password for HARD drive status to "unregistered".
    After that, save the BIOS changes and exit the BIOS.

  • Portege Z30t-A-11U problem of point fingerprint reader Windows 8.1


    I have problem with player figerprint on portege Z30t-A-11U - in Windows 8.1 PRO
    It comes from the outset - (System factory pre-installed)

    Several times a week does not fingerprint reader in the morning or after the awakening of the laptop. (connection icon is not at this time see - the drive does not work even after a manual connection)

    Thanks in advance.


    If this question of the fingerprint will not happen always, but only from time to time, then the troubleshooting will be very difficult
    These occasional problems are always tricky
    Anyway, if you haven't tried updating the software of the fingerprint in the past, I recommend you to do

    In addition, please check if the fingerprint sensor has been enabled in the BIOS.

    If this isn't the case, activate the fingerprint and save changes to the BIOS.

  • Fingerprints and the remote control supported on Satellite P100-387

    P100-387 has a fingerprint and the remote? Please, someone answer me.
    Thank you.


    To my knowledge, the Satellite P100-387 does not support the fingerprint reader and is not supplied with the remote control.
    But you're right.
    The fingerprints and the remote control are optional and some laptops in the P100 series support fingerprint reader and are delivered with command remotely.
