T43p & finger print reader

What do I have to do to enable the finger print on my T43p? At the moment when I log on it doesn't come into play at all.

 

Many thanks, and Merry Christmas to you all.

Re: T43p & finger print reader

Do you have it enabled in BIOS?

Cheers,

Not sure. I'll check.

 

Is the fingerprint reader a reliable way of securing the laptop, or a bit of a gimmick?

Re: T43p & finger print reader

It all depends on what you're trying to secure, really...


If it's the data on your hard disk drive, nothing beats a HD password.
