Thinkpad X270 - Synaptics WBDI Fingerprint Scanner Stopped Working

2018-04-22, 14:41 PM

A couple of days back, after a windows update, the fingerprint scanner on my Thinkpad X270 has stopped working. 


Initially, in Device Manager, it displayed the following:


 "This device cannot start (Code 10)"


But after I tried to update the drivers, it now displays:


"This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)

{Operation Failed}
The requested operation was unsuccessful."


Any ideas what I can do to fix it? It's as if it just suddenly stopped working overnight.
