What is TPM 2.0 Chip, Fix Windows 11 TPM 2.0 Module Error

What is TPM 2.0 Chip Motherboard in Your PC? Now get details of How To Fix Windows 11 TPM 2.0 Module Error while install, Update or Upgrade Windows 10 or older version. Recently Microsoft is released Windows 11 officially on June 24. This new version of Windows is long time waited and equipped with a lot of exciting features and stunning graphics. Just after the announcement it was loved and appreciated worldwide. Here we are explaining the method to active TPM on Intel and AMD Ryzen Processor via BIOS.

Now from all tech lover to a regular user of windows wants to install Windows 11 on their PC or Laptops and here things get twisted. Actually, this new version of windows is required an advanced type security module as a Windows 11 minimum requirements. This security module is called Trusted Platform Module or TPM. Due to the lack of this module, PC Health Check App show this error – “This PC can’t run Windows 11” while checking compatibility. Now, this error became a headache for all Microsoft WIN 11 lovers around the world. If you are one of the users who gets bothered with this TPM 2.0 Chip issue of Motherboard then stop worrying and read the solution below.

What is TPM Chip

Now the first question is that what is Trusted Platform Module (TPM), let’s know this term in the simplest manner. TPM is a module that does cryptographic functions like creating cryptographic keys and storing them in its isolated module in PC Motherboard. It is separated from the rest of the computer in the processor so that these cryptographic keys do not leave in the computer but still can do authorization works in a computer such as file encryption, drive encryption, and other cryptographic authentications or functions.

TPM is a global standard for a dedicated secure cryptoprocessor. Keep security concerns in mind Microsoft added its support in windows 11 Upgrade or update. Before moving toward a solution first we need to know about the type of TPM module so that an appropriate method of solution can be adopted.

Type of TPM Module

Trusted Platform Module has mainly two types of modules – Firmware TPM (fTPM) and Discrete TPM (dTPM). Discrete TPMs is Hardware based module that has a dedicated chip to perform TPM functionality. A dedicated slot called “TPM” to plug a dTPM chip is placed on the motherboard. This dTPM may be a 20-pin or 14-pin chip.

As its name Firmware TPMs are firmware-based TPM solutions like UEFI. It runs in the trusted execution environment of a CPU. Intel calls this functionality with the name ‘Platform Trest Technology (PTT)’ and AMD named it simply fTPM or Platform Security Processor (PSP).

As well, TPM has two versions, TPM 1.2 and TPM 2.0 but these do not have backward comparability. So after understanding the type of Trusted Platform Module we can decide on one of the methods to solve this TPM error.

How to check TPM Status in Your PC

It is easy to check that Trusted Platform Module TPM Module Version is enabled or disable currently on PC. Steps to check TPM 2.0 Windows 11 Status are as follows –

  1. Tab on start menu then tab again on “run” or you can simply press both Window Key and R at the same time.
  2. Now type ‘tpm.msc’ in the run box and tab on ok button.
  3. If you get status – The TPM is ready to use, then good to go, it active on your machine. And if TPM not available or deactivate then ‘compatible TPM cannot be found’ error will show.

fTPM Method – Firmware Based Solution

For Firmware-based processors, the CPU should have TPS module support. Unfortunately not all CPUs have this functionality, but still plenty of CPUs have their own security technology that fulfills the requirement of the Trusted Platform Module.

How to fix TPM 2.0 Windows 11 error on Intel CPU

It is seen that Intel has added built-in security technology named TPP which provides a TPM environment on PC. To activate TPM 2.0 Windows 11 on an Intel-Based computer through BIOS follow the below steps –

  1. First, restart the PC and press F10 or F12 (depending on your manufacturer) to access the BIOS settings.
  2. In BIOS we have to find TPP and enable it. Most probably TPP may find under ‘Advanced\PCH-FW Configuration’ or in ‘Secutrity’ section.
  3. After enabling the TPP to save the setting and check the TPM status on the system.

How to fix Windows 11 TPM error on AMD CPU

To Download and active TPM 2.0 on an AMD PC through BIOS use the following steps –

  1.  Again we need to access BIOS settings by restarting the computer.
  2. Once the BIOS setting is opened find the Peripherals tab/section.
  3. Now under this section, you will see AMD CPU fTPM which needs to Enable. That’s it, save this change and restart the PC to check TPM Status.

Now at the latest various Motherboard manufactures are releasing the list of boards that officially support TPM for Windows 11 upgrade or update like Asus, ASRock, Biostar, Gigabyte, and MSI –

C621, C422, C246WRX80
Z590, Q570, H570, B560, H510X570, B550, A520
Z490, Q470, H470, B460, H410, W480X470, B450
Z390, Z370, H370, B365, B360, H310, Q370Z370, B350, A320

Now you can check your PC/Laptop has one of these processor models. Moreover, if your system full fill other Windows 11 requirements then there is a chance that it has also TPM Chip. If it does not exist then you can add it.

Microsoft Windows 11 TPM 2.0 Download and Fix Error dTPM method – Hardware Based Solution

If fTPM module is not available on your system then need to choose the hardware-based solution. So in this case first we need to check the motherboard for a slot named “TPM”. This slot can be found near the Front USB Pin Connector on the bottom edge of the board. After locating the Connector, we have to identify the TMP version theater v1.2 or 2.0. Version 1.2 is outdated now which may rarely be found onboard manufactured before 2014.

To know the exact version you can read Manuel, or check the full specifications of the motherboard by its model number. But keep in mind that due to lack of backward compatibility you can’t use a TPM 2.0 module on a 1.2 version connector. Also, check the connector pin size that it is 20-pin or 14-pin. After figure out, all these things buy a TPM Module from the market. One last thing is that this hardware may be a company-specific mean even after matching all things like Asus TPM Module may not works on a Gigabyte board. So it is advised that confirm it with this manufacturer.

Bypass TPM 2.0 Error – appraiserres.dll replacing method

Before performing the following steps download appraiserres.dll file from this – link. This is a Windows 10 ISO file. We are using it Windows 10 doesn’t check that your computer has a TPM 2.0 chip or not. So you just need to replace this file with the one in Win 11 setup.

  1. Now first of all Right-click on the Windows 11 ISO and tab on Mount.
  2. After extracting, open this mounted ISO and head toward the sources folder.

  1. I got a stroke trying to read this shit. Absolutely incomprehensible writing. Go learn English first and then return to writing articles.

  2. Windows 11 hasn’t been officially released yet. The inside beta had been released. Full release at holidays times.

  3. Technology was halted by COVID-19 chip manufacturers stopped producing chips were ever you look TPM chips are not available what was available was sold to scalpers on the internet normally 15 -20 $ chips going for a $100.00 if you can get one .Thanks to Microsoft once again.!

  4. What on earth..?
    How the heck did this got on my feed? Never heard about the site but this reads like one of those scammy ‘how to repair problem x on your PC’ generic pages your come across by mistake.

    Not to mention some of the bullshit random stuff thrown in the article as filler and hoping this wasn’t read or something

  5. This article covers nothing, I guess I missed the ” fix ” this just added to my frustration! By typing tpm.msc I was told that I had the 2.0 requirements back to health check and no, processor not supported. Next bios. There is a tpm that is enabled and nothing I can change in anyway.

  6. I was able to do this ‘ TPM check ‘and ‘TPM enable ‘ after reading thru this site once. If there are asinine imbeciles who come here but do not know how to read or do not understand what they read then it sure is their own limitation of not being able to understand what is written here.

  7. Thanks for your support and great information. Love you, ignore the idiots who are rude and disrespectful.

  8. Microsoft Windows is getting more and more busy nose software. Guys, the first thing to do after installing a Microsoft OS is to blind it: No updates, no firewall, no security check, no maintenance, no silverlight, no auto turn on, no daily/monthly schedule/scan and NO tpm
    If Microsoft continue it’s policy by limiting user, many will migrate soon to open source operating systems.
    God bless hackers who can solve this problem soon, lol

  9. Many informed comments, as usual. English is my only language. Gboard is used with Android systems. Ginger grammar correction is used on others. English experts like myself still use these computer AI applications, to double check our products.
    Windows has very many freeware applications to select all or some of the desired privacy intrusions. No need to complain on this issue. Like we most work focused people, hopefully Linux (including Android) might one day be ready to replace Windows. Most of us are waiting still. Perhaps Flatpak, or similar product, might enable the Bronze Medal winner replace the Gold &silver winners in the operator end users’ world.

  10. I was just while reading waiting for how to install win 11 without tpm altogether. I have the slot on the motherboard. Buy a tpm 20 pin? How do i do that when it can’t be found anywhere?

    Out of stock or to old and never gonna be back everywhere.

  11. I am running Windows 10 on my Acer Aspire v3-531. Probably 7 or 8 years since purchased. I use Legacy Bios setup instead of the UEFI settings originally with the Windows 8.1 that was pre-installed. I have not come across TPM or similar in the Bios setup.
    Could it be because I switched to legacy bios? If I change to UEFI, I see error stating that No Operating System Found. I guess because I installed windows with legacy bios settings.
    Question: How do I get to install Windows 11 on the system?

    P.S. When I run … tpm.msc …. it returns error of Compatible Platform Module (TPM) cannot be found on this computer. Verify that this computer a 1.2 TPM or later and it is turned in the Bios.

  12. Thanks for a very informative article well written. Sure it may not be 100 per cent but it goes a very long way in improving my understanding of the issues and potential work rounds. Appreciate the effort put in.

  13. See the efforts rather than seeing the English and writing skills. Knowledge matters not the English skills. Morons!!!!

  14. Yesterday I read an article resolving the issues related to the devices in which error message is displayed by the microsoft pc health check up app. regarding upgrading windows 10 to windows 11.
    To tell you about the issue I confronted at the time attempting to upgrade windows 10,I followed all the instructions as enabling TPM 2.o etc. and all others directions provided by the experts till now but still the same error message flashes on the screen while running pc health check up app.
    Then one more article was published regarding upgrading windows 10 to 11 via microsoft insider preview in unsupported devices and one of them was downloading the windows 11 iso file from the given link and I did the same but at the time of excecution of windows 11 .exe file it asked for the product key and when the product key of windows 10 was filled in it was rejected by the system.
    Please guide me next to run this downloaded windows 11 iso file to install windows 11.
    In anticipation!

  15. TPM- creating cryptographic keys and storing them.. MY A$$
    even after win 10 still so many people are on win7..
    so how to push them on new OS (which is full of spy/tracking ur online activities).. This time they played TPM mandatory card..so that it will FORCE people to jump on newer version only if they have TPM 2.0 installed latest CPU.
    NOTE- first they said TPM v1.2 will work to install win11… but quickly after few days they change their statement and said only 2.0v will work

    Their statements keep changing like WHO regarding corona propoganda..to benefit medical mafia…
    Same here to push users on new OS only if they have latest CPU pc.. to benefit cpu ,TPM manufactures

    • you’re delusional, quit doing drugs. TPM modules are typically installed onto your motherboard and can be bought separately, it’s general gist is to create and store unique cryptographic keys.
