How do I update my TPM driver?

Answered by James Kissner

To update your TPM driver, you will need to follow a few steps. Please note that the exact steps may vary depending on your computer’s manufacturer and model.

1. Start by accessing the BIOS Setup. This can usually be done by restarting your computer and pressing a specific key, such as F2 or Del, during the boot process. The key to access the BIOS Setup is typically displayed on the screen.

2. Once you are in the BIOS Setup, navigate to the Security section. This section may be named differently on different computers, but it generally contains security-related settings.

3. Within the Security section, look for an option called TPM (Trusted Platform Module). This option may be labeled as TPM 1.2 or TPM 2.0, depending on the version of TPM supported by your computer.

4. Select the TPM option and look for an option to Clear TPM. Clearing the TPM will remove any existing TPM-related settings and data. This step is necessary before updating the TPM firmware.

5. After selecting Clear TPM, follow the on-screen prompts to confirm the action. Keep in mind that clearing the TPM may cause some data loss, so it’s important to back up any important data before proceeding.

6. Once the TPM has been cleared, save your changes by selecting the Apply or Save option in the BIOS Setup.

7. Exit the BIOS Setup and allow your computer to reboot.

8. Once Windows has booted back up, visit the support website of your computer’s manufacturer. Look for the TPM firmware update specifically designed for your computer model.

9. Download the TPM firmware update and run it on your computer. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation process. Make sure to read any accompanying documentation or release notes provided by the manufacturer for additional guidance.

10. After the TPM firmware update is successfully installed, restart your computer to complete the process.

It’s worth mentioning that updating the TPM firmware can be a critical process, as it directly affects the security features of your computer. Therefore, it’s important to ensure that you are using the correct firmware update for your specific computer model. If you are unsure about any step or have concerns about the update process, it is recommended to seek assistance from the manufacturer’s support team or consult with a professional technician.

I hope these steps help you update your TPM driver successfully. Remember to always exercise caution and follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully to avoid any potential issues.
