If you picked up Dell’s latest XPS 13 2-in-1 (7390) and have run into issues with the fingerprint reader, you’re not alone. Dell has created a support article for the issue, and has released a driver update that corrects it.
In short, the issue causes the fingerprint reader to fail when used to log in with Windows Hello. Here’s how Dell describes it:
There have been reports that attempting to log into the Windows operating system on an XPS 7390 2-in-1 notebook using fingerprint identification, can report an error on-screen that the device does not recognise you.
To correct the issue, you have to download and install the latest Goodix Fingerprint Sensor driver from Dell’s support site. The version you’re looking for is A04 (v126.96.36.1996), which was published on October 25.
The new XPS 13 2-in-1 (7390) makes the jump to Intel’s latest 10th Gen Core CPUs, sports a new keyboard, and features a new 16:10 display with HDR on board. In short, it’s a major upgrade over the previous generation of XPS 13 2-in-1. If you’re interested, the laptop is available now starting at $980.
Best Ultrabook of the year?
This 2-in-1 has all the right specs to make it truly awesome
Dell’s XPS 13 2-in-1 used to have a weak processor, but that changed for 2019. The new XPS 13 2-in-1 (7390) brings Intel’s 10nm 10th Gen Core-I processors, a 4K 16:10 display, and a gorgeous arctic white woven glass fiber design to make what looks to be the ultimate 2-in-1 PC. Toss in a MagLev keyboard and new speakers that sound great, and we think this is going to be the killer laptop this year.
