Disable the Enhanced Windows Biometric Security setting
- Boot into the BIOS Setup settings on your Lenovo ThinkPad.
- Navigate to ‘Security > Click on ‘Virtualization.’
- Disable the Enhanced Windows Biometric Security setting.
- Boot to Windows 10 desktop.
If the above-mentioned solution doesn’t work for some reason, well, you can try fixing the device drivers under the Device Manager settings.
Fix Device Drivers under Device Manager settings
- Boot your Lenovo ThinkPad into the Safe Mode.
- Navigate to the Device Manager
- Watch out for the drivers responsible for the error with a small yellow exclamation mark.
- If none of the entries are denoted using a small yellow exclamation mark, pay attention to sub-entries like C-Media USB Audio Class driver under Sound, video, and game controllers.
Alternatively, you can either update or rollback the driver. If that doesn’t work, you can uninstall the old drivers and replace them with the new ones.
We expect a fix to be released soon.
