How To Turn On Secure Boot Windows 11 For Valorant?

Valorant, the popular first-person shooter game developed by Riot Games, has specific system requirements that must be met to ensure smooth gameplay. Among these requirements are two security technologies: Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0 and Secure Boot. These features are particularly crucial for Windows 11 users, as they enhance the trust and safety levels when booting programs. Riot Games’ anti-cheat software, Vanguard, necessitates these features to verify a PC’s trusted state.

This article will provide a step-by-step guide on enabling Secure Boot and TPM 2.0 for Valorant, ensuring you can enjoy the game without any hitches.

How to fix TPM 2.0 error?

Secure Boot and TPM 2.0 are integral to the functionality of Valorant on your PC. If either of these features is disabled on your Windows 11 system, Valorant will not launch, and you will encounter error codes VAN9001 or VAN9003. These error codes indicate that Vanguard requires TPM version 2.0 and Secure Boot to be enabled for the game to play.

How to Enable Secure Boot for Valorant?

To enable Secure Boot, you need to access your system’s BIOS settings. Remember, altering your BIOS settings can be tricky if you’re unfamiliar with the process, and incorrect configurations can lead to system issues. Here’s how to enable Secure Boot:

  • Identify your BIOS key setup, which could be F10, F2, F12, F1, or DEL keys.
  • Restart your system.
  • Press the appropriate BIOS key until the BIOS menu appears on the screen.
  • In the BIOS menu, select the BOOT option, then Secure Boot, and enable it.
  • Ensure the BIOS Mode value is UEFI and the Secure Boot State value is On.

Once Secure Boot is enabled, you can proceed to enable TPM 2.0. Here’s how:

  • Press the Windows key.
  • Type “tpm.msc” and press Enter. If TPM is unsupported or not enabled, you will see a message indicating that a compatible TPM cannot be found.
  • If TPM is supported on your system, a new window will pop up with the status “The TPM is ready for use.” Ensure that the specification version is 2.0 in the TPM Manufacturing Information window.
