I just received my new x220 tablet with multi-touch screen with fingerprint ID option. Well, when you power it up, windows 7 prompts for a finger print read but no matter how many times I swipe it, it does not work. then when I 'type' my password to enter, and power up the think advantage finger print sw 5.9.5, it works like a charm.
Any fixes out there?
Why have a finger print reader if it does not work...

To enable the Windows or domain biometric settings in Control Panel, do the following:
Click Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Biometric Devices > Change biometric settings. The Change biometric settings window is displayed.
Select Biometrics on.
Select Allow users to log on to Windows using their fingerprints.
Select Allow users to log on to a domain using their fingerprints if the check box is available.
Click Save Changes to save your configuration.
Log off from the Windows operating system.
You will be able to use your fingerprints the next time you log in to the Windows operating system or a domain.

Thanks @Tanuj. I have encountered this problem countless times as well. I really like the biometrics feature because it is more secured than a password but since the fingerprint scanner hasn't been functioning right, then it caused me some security issues. I even tried rescanning my fingerprint to ensure that maybe there was a glitch when I first registered my fingerprint. Thanks for your help, I can finally get my fingerprint reader to work. Cheers!
