Laptop's fingerprint reader, is it possible to reuse it on desktop? Answered
the dead laptop is a HP Pavillion dv3 4010sl, the sensor is a Validity VFS301 (cdk1071_r04_hf) as written on the sensor itself.
if i remember correctly it was shown as a USB peripheral.
maybe is simple and it need just some resoldering to a USB cable,
the problem is that the flat cable connecting it to the motherboard has 6 pins/lines and my knowledge in electronics is quite limited...
I've found online what seems like a motherboard schematics (pg.48) and the vendor's sensor's manual.
Does Anyone knows if is possible, If yes how?
