I can't figure out how to activate the fingerprint sign on for the Sony Vaio.  Can anyone tell me how to do it or direct me to a place on the internet that explains it to me.

 In my experience with Toshiba laptops setting up those extra security features is usually done in one of the manufacturer's proprietary programs. So you probably have a lot of Sony-installed programs and folders, you'll probably just have to poke around there until you see one that is relevant to fingerprint sign-on.

Hey Mlrra I know this post is old but just in case you're still looking heres a couple sites that address related issues.

This link takes you to a forum discussion about enabling fingerprint security through Bios and what looks to be the benefits over using OS software.

Here is another thread where they discuss problems with "false negatives" or declined scans from the security software

I know they may not be directly related to what you're looking for but possibly you can find what you need from them?
