Perhaps you should specify your problem. Try to roll back your drivers if you did an update recently.

 And by the way, your device is a fingerprint READER... at least I hope so ;-)

I have installed a supposedly Win7 driver for the fingerprint sensor. Now the program tells me to check if the sensor is on and working. Through Device Manager, no problem, everything seems ok. I think that maybe the drivers aren't the good ones, or something else happened. I can also mention the fact that the fingerprint sensor didn't work properly neither under Win Vista. This meaning that under Win Vista I could run the tutorial for the fingerprint authentication, but I didn't have the "options" tab in the program so that I could make a logon using the fingerprint.


another problem would be the fact that when I recover my laptop from the "sleep" state, all the functions are starting correctly but the screen is still blank (black), it's like it doesn't start. I have installed the Vista drivers, I think, for the video. Anyone any ideas?

P.S. the model is 3000 series (or ValueLine) N200 AH4

Sorry if the post is not in the right category.


Thanks for the answer(s)!

I use Windows 7. As i installed the OS, Windows wanted to download the Fingerprint Driver, but it was the same in Vista, and after that driver, the fingerprint was dead.


So i just installed the old windows vista drivers (from the Support Page by Lenovo), and it works fine.


Before you install the drivers you should deinstall the old one, do it like this 


you go, to the hardware manager, find there Finger Print (Authen Tec Inc. AES2501A for example) right click on it, and deinstall the hardware, windows asks you should the driver deinstall and erase also? YES, do an restart, and after that install the old drivers.
