Search, Read, Learn and Read and Read and Read and Learn.. patience is the key..

You need to read books for all that.

Try using any search engine will get a lot of code online.

Very true, he has to read but remember he is here so we can direct him in the right path. Some books just dont give people what they want.

What edition of sql server are you connecting to?
checkhttp://connectionstrings.com for different connection strings to sql server
It would be best you use let the system detect the current time the use logged in and logged out because if you let the users do that themselves, they may play a trick on you

my database is SQL server 2008..

The hard part is the fingerprint scanner. Find out if you can use it with VB and how first.
I'm guessing your second problem would have to be the logout event, as users tend to forget this (Can you replace the fingerprint with an inactivity timer or a button for the logout? ) .
The third and last is to connect to the db and log the users action.
Don't waste your time finding out how to connect to the database and find out that your project can't be completed due to fingerprint scanner unless you can switch to logging in the old fashioned way.

aww.. i hope i can do this project.. tsk tsk.. i'll will try to vb6.. but can i have a favor can you give me some sample of your work in vb.net that will help me to learn this program. just give me a link or a made program.. :)) thanks lots
