Fixed – Trusted Platform Module has malfunctioned, with Error Code 80090030 in Microsoft Teams


Recently while trying to login into Microsoft Teams we got the below error –


  • As suggested in the different articles – we didn’t find any Teams Account Credentials to be removed.


  • Windows update also didn’t fix the issue.
  • Neither updating the driver from Devic Manager.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Creating EnableADAL key with Value data 0 also didn’t work.

Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Common

Expand the Common key and select the Identity subkey. Right-click on the space on the right side and go to “New > DWORD (32-bit) Value.”

Right-click on the newly created value and select Rename. Type EnableADAL.

By default, the Value Data of EnableADAL should be 0. If not, double-click on it and enter 0 in its Value Data. Click OK to save the changes.


  • tpm.msc è Prepare the TMP and Clear TPM also didn’t work.

Cryptographic Services were also running properly.

In our case, we were getting below additional error.

Eventually disconnecting the work account worked in our case.

The other solution that worked temporarily for us was to uninstall and reinstall the Microsoft Teams.

Fixed- Noisy Fan in Windows 10 / 11


Recently my laptop started making lot of noise continuously, for no obvious reason (it was not getting heated).

One solution that helped a lot was to set

Fan Always On = Disabled in System Configuration setting in the BIOS Setup.

Also came to know about this wonderful utility –

Fixed – Monitor taking too long to show display


Was using a BenQ GW280T monitor, which I had bought 10 years back around December of 2011. AT the time of writing it is almost 10 years for it. The monitor had been working flawlessly till last month., when it suddenly started taking around 2-3 minutes to show the display. The main power button’s light will flicker on and off till then. 2-3 minutes continued for the next 10 days or so and then then the duration increased to and then approximately around 10 minutes for some 15-20 days.

However, right now, it has started taking around 4-5 hours, directly from 10 minutes.
https://www.techspot.com/community/topics/monitor-taking-minutes-to-start-is-it-dying-fixable.205974/

Took it to the nearest repair shop, who mentioned that the issue was because of the failure of the capacitor. The repair took 1000 rupees (approx 14 USD) and the Monitor was up and running again. So if you are also facing the similar issue, better get it repaired instead of buying a new one.

Hope it helps..
