WhyNotWin11 is a detection script to help identify why your PC isn’t Windows 11 compatible. A detailed alternative to the Microsoft PC Health Check Windows 11 app. Since the script is unsigned, Windows 10 makes it very hard to download and run the script. Once the script is running, you can see at a glance what area of your PC isn’t Windows 11 ready. In this short video, I’ll go through the steps of downloading and running the script.
Microsoft Updates Windows 11 PC Health Check App #SHORTS
When Microsoft released the PC Health Check app for users to check if their PC can run the forthcoming Windows 11, it wasn’t very informative about which system requirement had failed to pass. Microsoft updated the app to display an informative message when something fails. In this short video, I have the screens and the solutions for TPM 2.0 NOT ENABLED and PROCESSOR NOT SUPPORTED.
How to Enable TPM for Windows 11 Compatibility #SHORTS
A new requirement for the forthcoming Microsoft Windows 11 is the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) version 2.0. Most prebuilt PCs and laptop have this feature enabled already. PC builders have two choices for enabling this feature: a hard-to-find component to plug into their motherboard or the TPM setting (AMD fTPM or Intel PTT) in the BIOS. This short video demonstrates the PC Health Check app and how to enable the AMD fTPM in the BIOS for Windows 11 combability.
NOTE: Different motherboard companies have different locations and names in the BIOS to enable the AMD fTPM. The example presented here is for the Asrock AMD AM4 motherboards.
UPDATE 6/25/2021: Microsoft updated the PC Health Check app to provide a detailed message for why a system isn’t Windows 11 compatible. Download and run the updated version.

How to Connect AsiaHorse ARGB LED Strip #SHORTS
A viewer asked to me how to connect together the AsiaHorse ARGB LED strips, as there were three connectors on the cable for each strip.
For connecting to the motherboard, the large female connector connects to the motherboard and a second strip connects to the large male connector (i.e., daisy chain).
For connecting to an ARGB hub controller, plug in either the large female connector or the smaller female connector. Most controllers I’ve seen use the larger female connector.
