Riot Games has always been committed to anti-cheat. Now, they’ve added TPM 2.0 and Secure Boot to their list of minimum requirements to up their game. These two components reinforce an additional layer of security, making it harder for players to cheat in the game. That’s why Valorant has had issues with TPM 2.0 recently.
Method 1: Enable TPM 2.0 and Secure Boot
Although the minimum requirements for Windows 11 include TPM 2.0 and Secure Boot, they are not necessarily enabled after installation, so even if the components are installed, make sure they are enabled first.
- Open the Start menu and click Settings under Pinned Apps.
- Select the System tab in the left column of the Settings window.
- On the left side of the window, scroll down and click Restore.
- Click the Restart Now button on the far right of Advanced Startup under the Recovery Options section.
After the PC restarts, locate and click the Troubleshooting tile.
Use the arrow keys to focus on the options listed on the screen and highlight the Enter BIOS Setup option. Then, press Enter on the keyboard to load the BIOS settings on the device.
Once in the BIOS setup screen, click Security on the left side of the screen. Turn on the TPM/Trusted Platform Module option on the right side of the screen. If there is a drop-down menu, select the Enable option.
On the left side of the screen, click Boot Options. In the right section, turn on the Secure Boot option. If there is a drop-down menu, click the menu and select the Enable option from it.
Press the F10 key on your keyboard or click the “Save Changes and Exit” button on the screen. The computer will restart.
After the computer restarts, launch Valorant game again to check if the TPM 2.0 error persists.
Method 2: Disable Discord’s auto-launch
Try disabling the Discord app’s auto-start at Windows startup to see if that resolves the TM2.0 issue.
Open the start menu and search for and open Discord.
In the Discord window, click User Settings in the lower right corner of the left sidebar.
Scroll down the left sidebar and click Windows Settings.
On the right side of the window, turn off Open Discord.
As a precaution, also disable its access from the task manager.
Open the start menu, search for and open the task manager.
In the Task Manager window, click Startup Applications.
In the Launch Applications window, click on the Discord listing. Click the Disable button in the upper right corner of the window.
Once disabled, run the game and check if the problem is resolved.
Method 3: Exit the Windows Insider Program
If neither of the first two methods work, you can try leaving the Windows Insider Program.
Note: Exiting the Windows Insider Program will not immediately transfer you to the stable build. Therefore, until you use a stable public release, you may not be able to play the game even with this fix applied.
Open the start menu, search in the menu and open Settings.
In the Settings window, find and click Windows Update on the left sidebar.
Scroll down on the right side of the window and click Windows Insider Program under the More Options section.
Click the toggle switch after the option to turn on Unenroll this device when the next version of Windows is released.
If you are on the Dev Channel of the Windows Insider Program, you need to reinstall or reset Windows 11. If you’ve never reinstalled Windows, you can create a bootable USB to install Windows, or install it directly from the Settings app, which is more convenient.
That’s all! Hope it can help you resolve the TPM and Secure Boot error using the three methods provided in this article.
