Fingerprint reader is not detected

2014-10-27, 0:29 AM

Hello

I currently have a thinkpad T400 2767 and up until a few weeks ago it was working fine, but then I got a device not recognised error in windows and the fingerprint reader stopped working. I rebooted and it was gone. Not in device manager or even in BIOS options. I have googled and cannot find anyone with the same problem.

I was wondering if anyone has any recomendations, and if buying a new reader would solve the problem, as I know they are tempremental.

Thanks

Funnily enough, the fingerprint reader on my T400 died the same way. Probably need to replace the sensor on the palmrest.
