After you upgrade to Windows Vista, you cannot use a fingerprint reader or another biometric device to log on.

Cannot use Fingerprint Reader or Biometric Device

To resolve this problem, log on by using the keyboard to enter a user name and password.

Note If you do not remember the password, you may have to reinstall Windows Vista by using a clean installation that prompts you to create a new account and password.
