Ssytem doesn't boot after TPM installation

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi,

I have a few systems with ASUS P8Z77-M Pro motherboards, which are equipped with TPM 20-1 headers. I bought some pre-owned TPM modules for those and after installing any of said modules on the motherboard, the system refuses to boot. Normally there is a beep before the ASUS splash screen appears on the display, but when the module is installed, there is no beep and the monitor doesn't detect any input.

I have updated the BIOS to the latest version without any issues.

I'm starting to wonder if the MBs and TPMs are brand-intercompatible, as the MB is from ASUS, and the modules are Gigabyte GC-TPM Rev 1.0, but I found no information on that before I bought the modules.
Has anybody had similar issues or do you have any tips?

It seems there can be different versions of TPM (1.2 and 2.0) on the same connector, but they're not intercomaptible.

I've had the same problem when installing an Asus TPM onto an MSI board. When you power on the system does the TPM get hot to the touch?

 

I'm gonna guess a Z77 board is not going to work with a TPM 2.0 anyway, AFAIK TPM 2.0 was created after everything changed from BIOS to UEFI and Z77 is right on that crossover period. Chances are you will need a 1.2 revision to work with your board.
