Enabling hardware virtualization

I just ran SecurAble and found out that "Hardware Virtualization" is locked off.

Anyone know how I can turn it back on? I heard If It's on it would give me better performance.

Thank you for your help,
John

Is this for your laptop or your desktop?

Latest BIOS for that machine is A15 from 7 Jan 2009 - might want to see if it s newer than what you have on your machine....

I have RTFM - there is no reference to virtualization. Not all VM software requires this support.

Correct - but with VBox, you'll need it in order to run 64bit OSs on a 32bit host....

and in general, it is a lot better performance on VMs if some sort of hardware virtualization is there.

And, IIRC, doesn't XP Mode *require* hardware virtualization?
