What is TPM?
The Trusted Platform Module (TPM - Reliable platform unit) is a security that can be integrated into the motherboard of your computer but can also be installed afterwards, if of course there is a suitable slot.

Computers from 2016 onwards have the largest percentage of TPM. This device also offers unique encryption codes on operating systems such as , is used in functions such as BitLocker, to encrypt and decrypt the hard disk.

There are several versions of TPM but the one Windows 11 requires is 2.0. When Windows 8 was first released, it required version 1.2 for BitLocker and if you didn't have it the was solved with corresponding software.

See if you have a TPM and if so, which version
1st way: Press Win + R at the same time and in the Run window that appears type tpm. msc and press Enter or do to OK.

It will start Trusted Platform Module (TPM). Here you can search about the status and manufacturer of the TPM. If you don't have a TPM you will see something like this:tpm check


But in this case you may just not have it enabled by the BIOS or UEFI. You need to enter the BIOS of the computer and look for where the TPM is mentioned and make it Enable.

If you have and it is activated you will see something like this:

tpm check 2


Στο παρακάτω παράδειγμα, η κατάσταση είναι: \”Το TPM είναι έτοιμο για χρήση\”.  Και οι κατασκευαστή είναι η έχει την έκδοση 2.0. Αυτό σημαίνει ότι το PC είναι κατάλληλο για την εκτέλεση των Windows 11.

2 Way: You can find out if you have TPM or not through device management. Right-click the Start button, and then click \ "Device Manager \".

Once Device Manager is open, scroll down and click on \ "Security devices" (or Security devices, if you have English) to expand the menu and see if there are any TPM entries.

tpm device manager check

3 Way: Use the command line. Open a command prompt as an administrator and type:
wmic /namespace:\\\\root\\cimv2\\security\\microsofttpm path win32_tpm get * /format:textvaluelist.xsl

tpm command prompt

If you have TPM and it is enabled it should return the TRUE value and you can see the version where it says SpecVersion.

Of course you can easily enter the BIOS or UEFI and see if you have TPM, but it is not as easy as the above methods. You can also use it Windows PC Health Check application to make sure your system supports Windows 11. The Best Technology Site in Greecefgns

  1. And if we have, that is, we have a free gift, since the processor that my pc has is probably 6 years old, which means that although a relatively new machine, I will not be able to upgrade it. Microsoft with its good

  2. The motherboard may have pins waiting for a TPM module to be pinned.

    So, even if you activate the tpm from the bios, a) you will still not have an effect since you will have to hook the circuit to the pins
    b) absent the module from the pins of the motherboard, even after the activation of tpm by the motherboard, the windows console will give you an error.

    Epilogue: I estimate that the vast majority of computer users will say:… even if they run the 11 amps, even if they do not run.
    And this will be true for many years to come.
