I am trying to activate BitLocker but it says TPM not enabled. Checked the bios after updating it and do not see that option.

If your computer has a TPM, you should find options to enable/disable/clear it in the BIOS.  It may not say "TPM" specifically, but could be called Security Chip or something similar.  Usually it will be categorized under security, along with things like the BIOS password options etc.  It's also possible that your computer doesn't have a TPM, not all do.

Compatible TPM cannot be found.

How do I encrypt my drives without TPM?
