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.

When I scaned my finger it said Too Short and will not open

Well first of all, get ***********'s finger to scan. The system probably locked you out because it doesn't recognize your fingerprint.
And if you have scanned your fingerprint as a key PRIOR to this situation then wait for your computer to load then calmly swipe your finger again.

Don't have authorized finger swipe or password.

Hi ginamarieanc,

There is always a password associated with the "finger swipe"
If he somehow managed to setup without a password you would be able to hit the enter key with the password bar blank and get in.

If you get an incorrect password error that means there is a password.

If you could get him to let you in once you could change the password. The only other way is to remove the cmos battery and reset the bios, you would need to disassemble the laptop to do that.

If I was a CSI I would be able to tell you how to lift his print off of a glass of water and make a mold of it(just kidding, I don't think that works)

Sorry I couldn't be of more help but let me know if I can help with removal of the cmos battery.

Please rate this solution.

Problem with my sound out put

I think I know your problem. First if I'm not wrong this model is design for Vista so the firmware for sound card is design for Vista.Incase you use with XP you'll have this problem and you can't do anything with that. But for your Webcam you can use the latest USB Webcam driver and you can download it from here

goodluck takecare.
