Finger Print scanner

\015 How do i switch my finger Print scanner on ???\015

Answers :

Well, the fingerprint scanner is used for a main purpose of quickly logging you onto your computer without having to punch in your password. There is a software called Thinkvantage Fingerprint Software that should have come with your purchase of the T61. (If it didn't, you can download the software for your OS here: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=TVAN-EAPFPR).
Once that installed and working, you can setup your fingerprint settings and add profiles by going into the Program Files and running the 'ctlcntr' application.
You should be able to use it for logging in purposes now :) Hope it helps.
Lenovo has software that i believe is called thinkvanted that has to be running in order for it to work. navigate to your start menu and look for the lenovo software that references either the fingerprint reader or security logins...if you can not find  it, go to lenovo's website and download the latest fingerprint driver and software for your model.

Fingerprint reader I just bought a hp pavilion dv 6000. I set up windows vista, but I cannot continue until it reads my fingerprint - and I have tried about 200 times. It just won't read it.
