TPM problems Tags: Laptops Boot Last response: January 31, 2011 2:01 AM in Laptops & Notebooks Share Phorce October 25, 2010 10:54:48 AM Hi all, I am new at this so pls bare with me. I have a HP NX 9420 laptop and I need help. The laptop does not boot normally it comes up with this: "The following configuration change was requested to this computer's trusted platform module (TPM): Allow a user to take ownership of the TPM : F1 boot" Taking out the cmos batt did not help, and i dont have a smartcard. It does not boot from cd or flashdrive. The only thing i can think of is deleting the bios manually(shorting out the chip). Can someone plz help me with this??

Phorce October 25, 2010 3:06:34 PM Hi, I have contacted HP, they say they cant help. Is there any other way of clearing/deleting the bios via the motherboard? Does anyone know where the bios chip is located on the mobo, or how to compleatly de-power the chip? Thanks.

Just as USB memory sticks don't require power, chances are a similar memory technology is in use here. Phorce October 25, 2010 5:21:54 PM Thanks for the help.
