- Click BIOS 5 – If your BIOS features Click BIOS 5, you’ll find “Security Device Support” in “Settings\Security\Trusted Computing”. Enable “PTT” on an Intel motherboard, or “AMD CPU fTPM” on an AMD motherboard.
- Click BIOS (GSE Lite) – If your BIOS features Click BIOS (GSE Lite), “Security Device Support” can be found in “Security\Trusted Computing”. Enable “PTT” or “AMD CPU fTPM”.
How to Check the TPM Status
- You can check if the TPM is enabled and what the TPM version is in BIOS or Windows 10. A tutorial video is available here.
- In BIOS – After “Security Device Supported” is enabled, press the F10 key to save and exit BIOS. Go back to BIOS and you’ll find the TPM version on your PC.
