I have an SL500 ThinkPad however there does not appear to be a TPM installed - there is no security / TPM option under device manager. I also cannot find anywhere to turn it on in the BIOS.
Is there something else I need to do to activate the TPM or does it not have one?

Thanks Dave. Installed the Client Security Solution and activated it. It displays that it is software based rather than hardware based as I was expecting. Unfortunately also no sign of the TPM capability.
Maybe some SL500s don't come with one?

I found a couple of reviews online that said it had it, but that's about the extent of what I could find. Maybe it doesn't. I'll keep checking, I'm looking now.
Edit: Your driver page doesn't list a driver for the TPM. Other ThinkPad driver lists do. I think now that your machine doesn't have it. Sorry to dash your hopes. If you had it, there would be a driver listed for it.
