TPM problem message after installing Win10 v1803 on Thinkpad W510

2018-05-20, 8:08 AM

I recently upgraded my Thinkpad W510 to Windows 10 April 2018 Update (v1803). I noticed a message in Windows Defender regarding a problem with the "security processor" which indicated that I should "reset it to fix functionality issues". In looking at TPM (Trusted Platform Module), I see a message indicating that "TPM is not ready for use" and I have the following available options:

 

1. TPM is not enabled or activated. Please check BIOS settings.

2. Turn on TPM and take ownership.

3. Restart the computer to take ownership of TPM.

4. Click "Prepare the TPM" to provision it.

5. You may clear the TPM to remove ownership and reset the TPM to factory defaults.

 

The TPM on my system is from STMicroelectronics not from Infineon which apparently had some issues.

 

Which choice do I make?

 

Thanks,

  JohnD

OK, I decided to try the TPM.msc management console to see if I could fix this. I clicked on the "Prepare the TPM" option. It then rebooted my system and came into sort of a BIOS type screen asking me if I wanted to enable and take ownership of TPM. I had to hit F10 to accept it. It then rebooted into Windows and the message has disappeared. So I am good to go.
