T42 "2nd" chipset driver not recognized!!!

#1 Post by Hoangnguyen » Sun Sep 08, 2019 9:20 pm

Specific problem: This is a pentium M and a biometric processor is showing up with a ? in the device manager.

I'd like to think I know a little bit about thinkpads but this has got me stumped. I can't get the driver I downloaded to work. Here is what I downloaded to the desktop.
I opened the executable off the desktop and a folder installed in my c drive directory that had all the other drivers I had previously installed. After I did that I tried updating the driver through the device manager by pointing to the folder that I installed. It doesnt give me the option of even searching the folder.

After that didnt work I went directly to the folder I installed on the c drive and double clicked on the setup icon and went through the guied installation process. Then on reboot I looked back at the device manager. Still not recognized... :?

This is the normal procedure I use to install all my drivers. Please let me know where I am going wrong. Many Thanks!

Welcome to the forum!

The chipset driver by itself will not get the FPR working. You need FPR-specific software

The solution to your problem should be here:
