Default Behavior

TPM is a kernel device driver. In Windows 10 it is starting only if the user, an application or another service starts it. If TPM fails to start, the failure details are being recorded into Event Log. Then Windows 10 will start up and notify the user that the TPM service has failed to start due to the error.

Restore Default Startup Configuration for TPM

1. Select your Windows 10 edition and release, and then click Download.

2. Save the Win10_TPM_Service_Startup.cmd file to a local storage device.

3. Run the saved file as an administrator.

4. Restart the computer.

The TPM service is using the tpm.sys file that is located in the %WinDir%\System32\drivers folder. If the file is changed, damaged or deleted, you can restore its original version from Windows 10 installation media.
