Good morning. Thanks for using JustAnswer. I'm XXXXX XXXXX, a/k/a "DrKlahn."

 

I am not sure I'm following your question properly. The Trusted Platform Module chip in the 6565B is enabled by default. In fact, it cannot be disabled without damaging the machine to an extent where it becomes unbootable. TPM is "always on."

 

Is there a specific feature of the TPM you wanted to use?

The TPM chip is grayed out / unselectable under User Tools.
The only selectable item under User Tools is Drivelock.
The TPM chip is not enabled.
Yes, the laptop does bootup, but I am unable to modify the TPM.
Tech Support Specialist: DrKlahn, Hardware Engineer replied 6 years ago

The TPM chip is grayed out because it cannot be disabled and there are no user controllable options. If it could be disabled without damaging the laptop, it would be useless. TPM is not a user-modifyable item in any sense. There are no options, so there is nothing that can be modified.

The TPM chip needs to be initialized in order for Bitlocker to operate.
In the OS Bitlocker cannot be turned on.
Error is that the TPM is not turned on.

I will pass this question back to the available list so that other experts can bring their knowledge to bear on it. I wish you a speedy and successful conclusion.

Hi,

I'll be happy to help with this issue - you can verify that the TPM chip is enabled by following the steps below

The embedded security chip must be enabled in the Quick Initialization Wizard or in the Computer
Setup utility.
To enable the embedded security chip in Computer Setup:
1. Open Computer Setup by turning on or restarting the computer, and then pressing f10 while the
“f10 = ROM Based Setup” message is displayed in the lower-left corner of the screen.
2. If you have not set an administrator password, use the arrow keys to select Security, select
Setup password, and then press enter.
3. Type your password XXXXX the New password XXXXX Verify new password XXXXX and then press
f10.
4. In the Security menu, use the arrow keys to select TPM Embedded Security, and then press
enter.
5. Under Embedded Security, if the device is hidden, select Available.
6. Select Embedded security device state, and then change the setting to Enable.
7. Press f10 to accept the changes to the Embedded Security configuration.
8. To save your preferences and exit Computer Setup, use the arrow keys to select File, select
Save Changes and Exit, and then follow the on-screen instructions.

Let me know how that goes.

Cheers

Steve

Thank You for the information.
I have resolved the problem.
There was not an admin password XXXXX in the BIOS.
After setting the Admin password XXXXX allowed access to the TPM and other aspects of the BIOS that were unavailable.
Yes, I know. This is the first time dealing with this version of the HP BIOS.

I do wish to thank everyone who helped in this matter.

Thank You

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
