Does anyone have a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) installed on their computer? If so, can you create a screenshot of your device manager showing it? I think its listed under the security hardware.

Can you also run tpm.msc and send me a good screenshot of that screen as well with what it shows?

Need this for an article and do not have a newew computer to test this on.

Thanks

Thanks TOS! If possible, you may want to see if an upgrade is available for the 2.0 specification.

Grinler, I've been here since you were running with scissors. But it doesn't mean I developed skills for everything, especially windows 7 and 10.
I don't think I can update TPM thingie any time soon.

I do have Security chip on the laptop. In BIOS security section it says it's active.
But
1. When I boot Windows 7, devices say it's on Intel QM77 express chipset LPC controller - 1E55, and tpm.msc says "compatible TPM cannot be found", so it's totally different from what I posted from Windows 10.
2. No idea if I'm to update things in BIOS (I hope not) and/or in which Windows.
3. I googled a lot, including the link jenae posted, and see many places where it says it's for Active Directory or corporations, or Bit locker, or UEFI (I use legacy boot), or ... or ... and nothing concrete about my exact T430s laptop.
So I hope you don't need my contribution any more because at this point it's a no go for me.
TPM 2.0 does sound like a better thing, so if I ever decide to do something, I'll start a new thread begging for advice. Or wait for your tutorial.
