How to fix Secure Boot Violation

When you boot your PC or laptop, you may receive a warning message saying “Secure Boot Violation Invalid Signature Detected. Check Secure Boot Policy in Setup”. In this situation, you can continue to boot the Windows system, but at the next boot, this warning will appear again. This problem occurs when you install the boot program without an OEM signature, which starts at boot time. It can be an unsigned driver, a left-loaded DLL file, a pirated version of the program is installed. In many cases, this happens when the Secure Boot function is enabled, which checks the digital signature of the drivers every time the PC boots up. She sees that the driver does not have a signature and issues such a warning “Secure Boot Violation”. Let’s see how to fix this error.

 

Disable Secure Boot

You need to enter the BIOS. To do this, when loading the PC, press the F1, F2, Del button. If you can’t get it or you don’t know which button to press, go to “Buttons for entering bios from manufacturers of laptops and computers”. When we entered the BIOS, find Secure Boot and select Disabled. In different BIOSes, this function can be located anywhere, but usually look in the Boot column. Restart your laptop and the warning should disappear.
