How to check if your PC has a trusted platform module (TPM)

Microsoft’s new operating system Windows 11 requires all devices to have TPM 2.0 chip built-in. If your PC doesn’t contain TPM 2.0 hardware chip, you’ll not be able to upgrade or install Windows 11 in your computer system. You’ll get Windows 11 TPM related error messages at installation time and the setup process will close.

Windows 11 minimum system requirements clearly mention that the device must have TPM 2.0. So your device must have TPM 2.0 chip to support Windows 11 operating system.

On Windows 10, there are many ways to determine if the system has a trusted platform module, including using Settings, Device Manager, and the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) settings.

Under the "Related settings" section, click the BitLocker settings option.

  • Under the "Status" section, confirm "The TPM is ready for use" to confirm the device has a trusted platform module, and it's enabled.
