    I check in the bios, no error..

    Thanks in advance

    Try looking at services and make sure that service is running. I would thing it should be set to automatic start.

    If it is a USB device try unplugging it and then plug it back in.

    OK Sorry but that is all I can do. I have never used a Fingerprint Reader. Have you tried the manufacturer's website for an update?

    It must be a driver issue as my fingerprint reader works fine.

    It's weird because in the device manager I can see the fingerprint, and there is a driver for it. But in settings, I can't configure fingerprint
