Those 2 entries for the 'Base System Device' are very likely to be the Ricoh multi-card reader, but I don't know if the older drivers would work. Here is the driver for Windows 7 x64 and x86, try giving that a shot.

The fingerprint sensor should be the Authentec AES2810, and this driver should work.

The 'PCI Simple Communications Controller' must be AMT for sure, and this seems to be the driver for it.

I had the same trouble with the FPR on a T510 that was pre-loaded with Windows 10 before I bought it on ebay.

The software drivers were there, but there was no GUI to load fingerprints to. There is a thread I created on this on the site, but I don't have the time to search for it. My solution fixed this problem.
T500 T9600 2055-BE9
T510 i5 4384-DV7
T510 i7 4349-A64
T520 i7 4242-4UU(CTO)

T520: i7-2760QM(2.40GHz),16GB, 500GB SSD/250GB SSD, 1600x900, 1GB NVIDIA, DVDRW, Smartcard, media card, FPR, Win7 Pro64, XP Pro64 whitelist BIOS, N 6300 AGN, German KB, BT 4.0.

If it the problem devices are showing up in Device Manager, try looking under Details > Property > Hardware ID's for each problem device. Then try googling the numbers to find out what the device is.
