Is VT enabled on your VMware host (KB1003944)....

VMware KB: Ensuring Virtualization Technology is enabled on your VMware host

Check if your processor supports VT:

Intel® Virtualization Technology List
Does my processor support Intel® Virtualization Technology?

After you have confirmed that your processor supports VT, you may need to enable the support. VT must be enabled in the host system BIOS. The feature may be named VT, Vanderpool Technology, Virtualization Technology, VMX, or Virtual Machine Extensions. Often, you find this setting under Security tab in the BIOS. The location of this setting varies depending on the system vendor.

The VT setting is locked (either on or off) at power on. After enabling VT in your system BIOS, you can first save your changes to the BIOS settings and then turn off power to the system. When you turn the system on again, your changes take effect. If you simply reboot the system without turning it off, VT is not enabled.

First thank you for your support,
I made many searches about enabling virtualization but I didn't checked whether my CPU supports it.
Now i checked the result is negative,that means mine will not support.
Do you have any idea to run backtrack5 r2 in my laptop whose CPU doesn't support virtualization????

You're welcome ... Why not just boot a backtrack live CD or create a small partition for it and install it to the hard drive?
