Install the TPM Software and Driver

NOTE: Installation and activation of TPM cause Microsoft® Windows® XP System Restore to remove all existing System Restore Points. Manually create a restore point after the Personal Secure Drive is activated and functional in order to provide future stability to your system.

Click Start, click Run. To install the software and driver:

  1. Type C:\Dell\TPM\setup.exe in the Open field and click OK to run the Broadcom Secure Foundation™ TPM - InstallShield Wizard.
  2. When prompted to restart the computer, click Yes. If a custom image was loaded or the operating system was reinstalled, the software needs to be downloaded from Dell Downloads. 
NOTE: During the software installation, the software checks for the latest network driver. If the network driver is not the latest revision, the install wizard asks to update the driver. The TPM does not function properly if the latest revision is declined.
