Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums! 


Hello jaalvare! Thanks for reaching out. Can you please try the following steps:


1. Uninstall the fingerprint software by going to Control Panel > Programs then reboot

2. When the computer boots back up, check Device Manager > Biometric Devices to see if the Fingerprint Reader is now there.


If the Fingerprint Device is still not there then you will need to uninstall the specific update that got installed or try doing a System Restore (if applicable)



Let us know if this helps.
