Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -

Hi there,

I have an old Thinkpad T60 laptop with windows xp and I have been using it without hiccups for a while. But after a routing fresh windows xp install, it seems that I have an atmel tpm driver error , which comes up as an comes up in the device manager with the yellow exclamation mark and the status stating as driver problems.

But the thing is that I have been using the same drivers for a while and never encountered this problem before.

Can anyone please provide me a solution to the problem?

This usually means that the ATMEL Trusted Platform Module driver for Windows XP was not properly installed. This could have been an error during installation.

Visit the following website : and download the driver for your notebook.

Right click on the device in device manager, and update the driver with the file downloaded.

Should fix your problem.
