To enable the TPM in the BIOS follow these steps below:


  1. Boot computer using F2 into the BIOS setup mode

  2. Locate the “Security” option on the left and expand

  3. Locate the “TPM” option nested under the “Security” setting

  4. To enable the TPM settings you must check the box saying:  “TPM Security” to enable the TPM hard drive security encryption

  5. Ensure the “Activate” radio button is turned on in order to ensure the TPM option works
