Re: Lenovo V470/V570 Boot-up problems - Seemingly Solved

I succeeded in hosing my system so I restored it back to Sunday (Acronis 2012).

 

I (re-)installed Bioexcess, but made none of the other changes we've talked about in the last 10 or so posts.

 

I did uninstall Veriface (this was mentioned before) and notice it's much snappier in popping up the login screen with the fingerprint icons.

 

We'll see!

Re: Lenovo V470/V570 Boot-up problems - Seemingly Solved

Yes, I too hosed things up.  I just could not leave well enough alone and I made the fatal mistake of running Lenovo Boot Optimizer.  Untypically, it ran OK through two complete boot ups (in order to optimize).  But I got the dreaded "Please Wait" message for every boot attempt after that.  After doinking around with all the usual suspects, I eventually just enabled everything - all services.  Lo and behold, its been booting fine again - so far.  Now I just have to approach every start-up with trepidation and keep my fingers crossed.  As V570 users know, it's only a matter of time before your number is up.

Re: Lenovo V470/V570 Boot-up problems - Seemingly Solved

Hi My v570 simply won't boot. When turned on the LED on the touchpad light up but the screen remains blank and it makes little noise. Have tried the one key rescue but same result. Nothing comes up on the screen. Help would be appreciated. Thanks

this is a different prob from this thread.  You probably have a blown BIOS.  If you got it at BestBuy, take it back.

Re: Lenovo V470/V570 Boot-up problems

I wouldn't go as far as to uninstall the driver, especially if you managed to obtain ver. 3.0.10.0 Dated: 4/21/2011 (pain to find), I would suggest performing the folder rename fix and uninstalling Bioexcess sw as described previously (twice), cuz someday who knows, maybe Egistech will pull their thumbs out of their butts and make Bioexcess compatible with Windows 7 64. Hey, anything's possible!

Re: Lenovo V470/V570 Boot-up problems

driver 3.0.10.4 exists in D:/drivers/FP , and at lenovo support 

http://consumersupport.lenovo.com/us/en/DriversDownloads/drivers_list.aspx?CategoryID=200619

 

I did not change the driver, and am having success with Bioexcess by just uninstalling VeriFace .

 

Egistech will not fix this release as it has moved on to a new release which does not support our ES603 fingerprint readers.

 

There are 2 different BioExcess rel 67 modules, but I have been unable to verify that the original workes any different from the one at the Lenovo support site above.  I'm using the original at the moment.

Re: Lenovo V470/V570 Boot-up problems

That there was 2007, I dunno about everyone else but I cant consciously write off a company from a bbb report from 5 years ago, technology changes and solutions arise way to rapidly. In this case, Egistech is the company to blame. My V570 works perfectly without bioexcess installed, and many other people have said the same thing in this thread. This post is just a little too easily ignorant.

P.S.: I but mine a week ago. Good speed at a good price. B- (due to qc failure of fps).

Re: Lenovo V470/V570 Boot-up problems

Hi Kris, nice to meet. Have you tried installing that file, IN3FGP07WW5 installs as 3.0.7 for me, so does D drive. The file I found was IN3FGP11WW5.

Also, may I ask how things are operating with Bioexcess since you disabled those 3 services. Any further issues? I may try that and reinstall Bioexcess.

Windows Error Reporting Service
Network Location Awareness
Network List Service

Correct?

Thanks.

Re: Lenovo V470/V570 Boot-up problems

[ Edited ]

I restored (Acronis) my C partition back to before I had done anything with the services - either those 3, or the 2 egistec ones.  The only thing I have modified is to uninstall veriface.

 

Opinion - Egistec used a legacy driver to enable the 603 instead of the Win7 Biometric API stuff.

 

I am looking at  http://store.authentec.com/en-us/nm/ap/eikonsolo.aspx  and may try that in a month or so.  The question is whether the existance of the 603 will mess that up (I plan on uninstalling bioexcess before installing the Eikon.) .  But this is all really just playtime!

 

IN12STW68WW5.exe  but that's the bioexcess module.
