HAVEA TOSHIBA LAPTOP WITH A FINGERPRINT IDENTIFIER TO OPEN WINDOWS, WANT TO CHANGE THE FINGERPRINT TO MY DAUGHTERS. HOW DO WE ACCESS THIS?


dentifying the fingerprint readerA fingerprint reader provides extra security for the PC. The VeriSoft Access Manager by Bioscrypt uses the fingerprint reader to identify the user, and controls access to Windows or other secure systems. Instead of typing a User ID and password, you can move your finger across a sensor to logon or start commonly used applications. Verisoft Access Manager can manage all of your different secure accounts and the required user names and passwords by recognizing your fingerprint.On HP notebook PCs, the fingerprint reader is a small metallic sensor located near the keyboard or display. By swiping your finger perpendicular to the metallic sensor you can logon to the PC, a network, or open a program. c00897920.gifBefore you can use the fingerprint reader, you must set up the fingerprint reader by registering your fingerprint with the Access Manager. Set up the fingerprint reader To set up the fingerprint reader to recognize a user, the user must have a logon account on the PC and the account must have a password. Multiple users can be registered for the fingerprint reader if each has their own user account.
  1. In Windows, double-click the VeriSoft Access Manager icon c00897921.gif in the notification area of the taskbar to open the My Identity window. Alternately, click Start > All programs > Verisoft > My Identity .
  2. Click Log On to open the VeriSoft Logon Wizard. Click Next to begin.
  3. Enter the User's Windows password in the Password field on the Introduce Yourself page, and click Next . If you have successfully logged on to Windows, click Finish to close the wizard.
  4. Click Register Fingerprints on the My Identity window, to open the VeriSoft Logon Wizard. Click Next to begin. c00897922.gif
  5. Select a finger shown on the hand graphic, and then slowly swipe your finger across the sensor. One of the squares below the hand graphic will change color when the scan is accepted. A message displays if the scan is not accepted.
  6. Swipe the same finger across the sensor again until all four squares change color, then clickNext to register the finger print. If you need to start over during the fingerprint registration process, right-click the highlighted finger on the screen and then click Start Over .
  7. If prompted to register a second fingerprint, click a different finger on the hand graphic, and then repeat steps 5 and 6.
  8. After using the Registration Wizard to registered at least 2 fingers, click Finish .
  9. To set up the fingerprint reader for a different Windows user, log on to Windows as that user and then repeat steps 1 through 8.
After registering your fingerprint you can log off and then use your registered fingers to log on to Windows.

How to setup finger print sensor


When you start a machine with a Fingerprint reader for the first time, you will see the following screen when you reach the Desktop. This is the main console for configuring and managing the Fingerprint reader.

Here you can enroll your fingerprint, and adjust your Power-on security settings.

When you click on “Create new passport and enroll fingerprints” you will be prompted for your logon password.

Once you enter your password you will see the main enrollment screen.

You can select a fingerprint to enroll either by selecting the fingertip with your mouse, or by choosing from the drop down list. To enroll, either double-click the fingertip you wish to use, or press the Enroll button

On the left is an animated finger that demonstrates how to swipe. You must swipe your finger three times to enroll.

If your finger is not centered, you will be prompted to move it to the right or to the left. If it’s not able to read at all you will be prompted to try again.

When you swipe successfully, you will see the highlighted portion go to No. 2 for the finger printer to be swiped again.

Once you have swiped three times successfully, the three images merge into one and you are brought back to the main enrollment screen, where the enrolled finger is shown with a red dot.

  • You can enroll multiple fingers.
  • The Enroll button has changed to say Delete. This allows you to delete a fingerprint you have already enrolled. If you used the mouse to click on a fingertip that was not already enrolled, the button would change back to Enroll.
When you click Next you are brought to the Power-on Security screen.

This is also the second choice from the main Fingerprints enrollment screen. Here you can use a fingerprint to replace your Power-on passwords if you are using them.

If you are using Power-on passwords, then select the box at the top. When you click on the Add button, you will be shown a list of the fingers that you have enrolled, and can select which one(s) you want to enable to replace your Power-on passwords.
Once you select a choice from the box, the finger will show up in the list. The first time you restart your machine after this, you may be asked to swipe your fingerprint as well as enter any Power-on passwords you have set. After that you should only be asked for your fingerprint.

  • Predesktop Authentication
    • In addition to the process above, there is a setting in BIOS that must be enabled for a user to be prompted for their fingerprint instead of a Power-on password. The Default for this Setting is “Enabled”, so no change should be necessary. It is in the Security Section under Fingerprint. The setting is called “Predesktop Authentication” Again, the default is “Enabled”. If disabled, a user will not be able to use their fingerprint on Power-on.
  • Security Mode
    • This controls what password will allow a user access to the system if they are not able to gain access using their fingerprint. The default setting is “Normal”. This will allow the use of either a user Power on password, or a Supervisor password instead of a fingerprint.

      The alternative setting is High. This will allow only a Supervisor password to be entered instead of a fingerprint to gain access to the system.
Once you click Finish, you will be brought back to the main Fingerprints screen.

The Create new Passport and enroll fingerprints choice has gone. Replacing it are two new choices:
  • Edit passport and fingerprints
  • Delete passport and fingerprints.
If you choose Edit passport and fingerprints you will be prompted to swipe your finger to confirm your identity

You will then see the password screen. Click next to go to the main enrollment screen.

This is the same screen that appears when you have successfully enrolled a fingerprint.

Here again you can delete or enroll fingerprints

I trust this was helpful and thank you for contacting the experts.

I changed the password on my Dell Inspiron 600m the other night and now I can't remember what I changed it to and now I'm locked out of my computer! Please can someone please . . . . help me?


Do you mean the password to log into Windows XP?

If so, right after you turn on the Laptop, start tapping the F8 key until you get a menu screen on a black background.

With the keyboard arrow keys, select Safe Mode and click Enter.

On the Windows Welcome Screen you should see your Windows account and a new Administrator account. Hopefully, no one set up a password on the built-in Administrator account. Click the Administrator account and click to log in with no (blank) password.

Windows will tell you that you are working in Safe Mode and click yes on that box (The screen will look considerably larger and your background will not show as Windows uses default video drivers in safe mode). Click start and go to Control Panel. On the left hand side click Classic View and then Double Click on the User Accounts Icon.

Click your account from the User Accounts window that opens and choose Change My Password or Remove My Passowd. After you have removed or changed your password, close all the Windows and Restart your computer normally. When you get to the Windows Welcome Screen, the Administrator account should not be listed anymore and you can select your account and log in with the New Password you created, or log in with a blank password if you chose to Remove My Password.
