I've been using mine for about a year with no problems, try plugging it into a different USB port. Windows will probably reinstall the drivers and this will reset the fingerprint reader. If it doesn't come back on then, you're probably gonna need a new one. Also, check the system tray icon for the fingerprint reader. Hover your mouse over it. If it says that the reader is connected, chances are that red light just somehow isn't working. You could try taking the whole thing apart and looking at the red light to see if there's anything unusual around there.

Microsoft fingerprint reader and windows 7


Users installing windows 7 on their pcs may have experienced a problem: it seems microsoft fingerprint reader is not compatible with windows 7 so and has been discontinued by microsoft. That means, no driver update. You can go on using your fingerprint reader simply clicking the link below and following the instructions. I used that trick several times and it always worked. <br /><br /><a href="http://www.blogfeld.com/2009/10/microsoft-fingerprint-reader-windows-7.html">http://www.blogfeld.com/2009/10/microsoft-fingerprint-reader-windows-7.html</a>

DigitalPersona u are U 4000 is obsolate never the less (not supported any longer), you can still use it.
1. Uninstall the former one that you installed then Download the new driver at http://www.digitalpersona.com/support/downloads/software-updates/reader-driver-dp0002003/

3. If you happen to be in Nigeria, you have to get a license before you can use it on jamb website.

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. Using Fingerprint reader before registeringIf you swipe your finger across the fingerprint reader before it is set up, the Access Manager opens a logon wizard window and prompts you for informa

Dv9700 HP Notebook PC: DigitalPersona Personal 3.0.0 "The fingerprint reader is not detected"


I found this on another site and it worked for me!

"Ihad the same thing happen, and determined that you have to go back toan earlier version of the Authentec driver to make it work. I tried 4versions and the only one that works with DigitalPersona is 7.9.0.4,dated 2007-08-28. You can find it on the HP Website. It appears to beavailable in a number of Softpaqs, such as sp37815.exe, sp37812.exe andsp37920.exe. Maybe these different versions are meant for differentmodels, but they appear to be the same driver. There is a brand newdriver available from Windows Update, but it doesn't work. I hope thisworks for you.

To fix this issue go to device manager, then under personal identification devices, right click on the authentec fingerprint reader.

click on the driver tab, and click the roll back driver button...should fix the problem for you...I also tried EVERYTHING you guys mention but to no avail....this works!!!
