Checking TPM version status
To check the TPM version on your PC:-
1) You can press the Windows key along with the R key at the same time to open up Run Window. You can also open the Start menu, type Run, and open it up.
2) Now, you need to type in tpm.msc and click OK. Now, if you can see the status, The TPM is ready for you, which means that the TPM is already enabled and the Specification version is 2.0.
You cannot upgrade to Windows 11 if your PC doesn’t contain a TPM chip. So, if you run a PC on Windows 11, it is obvious that your build contains a TPM chip. However, the error may appear if TPM is disabled on your PC. Keep reading to know how to enable it via BIOS.
Enable TPM 2.0 and Secure Boot
1) You will need to open BIOS settings. To open BIOS, go to Settings > System > Recovery > Advanced startup > Restart Now. From the “Choose an Option” screen, navigate to Troubleshoot > Advanced Options > UEFI Firmware Settings and then click “Restart”. You will then see the BIOS settings screen.
2) You need to navigate and go to Advanced and go to Trusted Computing and make sure you enable the Security Device Support. Go to TPM 2.0 UEFI Spec Version and choose TCG_2. Now hit the Escape key and go to Security and then to Secure Boot. Next, enable Secure Boot. After that, you need to go to Key Management, enter Restore Factory Keys, and click Yes.
3) Now, after you turn on Secure Boot, go to Advanced and then to CSM Configuration. Check whether everything is disabled. Make sure you change everything to UEFI only because some of them might be in Legacy, and we don’t want Legacy. You can go to Save and Exit and then Save Changes and Reset > Click YES.
Now, check again if your TPM is enabled and ready for use – Open Run Window and type in tpm.msc. Click OK and check the TPM status – it should be enabled now. Check whether you are able to play Valorant now. That’s it. I hope this method helped you guys. For more such guides, stay tuned to AndroidGram.
