I bought my new lap top about 1 month now and im seem unable to find the option for enabling/disabling the virtualization technology in my lap top thru bios settings, i really need to enable it for running the VMware for my studies needs. my lap top specification is:
HP Pavilion dv6-6007tx Entertainment Notebook PC Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2630QM CPU @ 2.00GHz 8 GB RAM Radeon (TM) HD 6770M System BIOS F.06 Windows 7 professional 64 bits
I have a W530, with i7 and 16G standard setup. I want to enable HV-X and found they are marked as Disabled, and gray-out in BIOS, also date is gray-out also.
i7 must support virtualizaion, while time setting is gray-out, I think this is either a security issue or a BIOS bug, but I had same problem with 2013 Feb BIOS, and also update to 2014 latest BIOS, same problem here.
Since 2 years ago, I owned an Acer Aspire 9420. It is a 17" laptop with Intel CPU (Intel C2D T5600). According to Intel website, T5600 processor have Intel Virtualization Technology. However, for unknown reason, there is no option to turn ON Virtualization in the BIOS. Even Acer doesn't provide BIOS update that support this feature. My works involved VMware simulation & this prevent me from running 64 bit guest OS. Since buying another laptop seems not worth at all & Acer Aspire 9420 is a strong laptop to do heavy job, I'm determine, what ever it takes, I will enable Virtualization on this laptop.
For the past 2 years, I have working hard to achieve my objective. I has search & search in the internet and I found a couple of article about hacking the BIOS to enable Virtualization. This is a few forum's threads & articles I found:-
I ran Intels Processor Identification Tool, and it shows VT as enabled. I haven't installed VMWare yet, but I will shortly. Also, I haven't updated my Bios, but the VGN-Z690 bios update might be a possible solution for other(just a wild guess, I have no way of varifying).
For some reason when connecting to my UE Boom speakers, the sound volume is about 70% as loud as when playing from any of my other devices, such as my HTC One or my wifes Ipad. I have checked all the settings, volume is maxed out at 100%. I have reinstalled the latest drivers for both the bluetooth and the audio device:
I bought the Aspire 8920 from Best Buy here in Canada. You can view the specs of my configuration of the 8920 here.
I absolutely LOVE the laptop. I love high resolution; I love the Blu-ray drive; I love the 4Gigs of Ram; I love the 2 hard drives which give me almost 3/4 of a terabyte. Acer even sent me an additional power adapter and additional battery for FREE (I think the agent I was talking to was just having a good day). Everything about this laptop is awesome! Except one thing...
My configuration comes with the T5750 processor. It turns out that the T5750 doesn't support Intel Virtualization Technology. I've been intending on installing Windows Server 2008 as my primary OS so that I can use Hyper-V (I've heard great things about it, but I haven't really touched it too much yet), but I just found out that you MUST have a processor that either has Intel VT or AMD-V or else Hyper-V will not work. Currently I use VMWare Workstation for my VMs but I can't have any 64-bit guest OSs because of the same problem... my processor doesn't have VT. Don't ask me why I didn't research all this stuff BEFORE buying my new laptop... I'm still kicking myself for that.
So... onto my question(s). There are some configurations of the 8920 that have processors that support Intel VT (ie. T7500, T9500, etc.). I want to, again, upgrade to a machine that has a processor that I need... but I love the Aspire 8920 too much so I think I'm just going to get one of those higher configurations. However, there is a little problem. Intel VT comes turned off by default. The only way for it to be turned on is in the BIOS. I've read in several forums that a few manufacturers are either forgetting to add this BIOS setting or just not doing it at all.
Question 1) To anyone reading this who has an Aspire 8920 with a processor that supports Intel VT (Find out if your processor has VT support): a) What processor do you have? b) Do you know what configuration of the Aspire 8920 you have (ie. 8920-6671)? c) Can you confirm if there is a "Virtualization" or "VT" setting in the BIOS?
Question 2) To anyone reading this that does a lot of virtualizing on their Aspire 8920: a) What virtualization software are you using? b) What guest OSs are you running and what are you using them for? c) Do the VMs run well for you?
Question 3) Since were somewhat on the topic, is there anyone that has some experience with Hyper-V and virtualization under Windows Server 2008; and if so, what are you personal opinions on it compared to other virtualization solutions out there?
I'm running the Windows 7 RTM on my Acer. One of the main things I was excited about in this build was the Windows XP Mode, which requires the use of the Virtual PC 2007 Beta in conjunction with a specialized add-on (both are available for download here).
Well, long story short, the Virtual PC installed with no problems. The Windows XP Mode module also installed, but when it tried to run I got the following error:
"Virtual Windows XP could not be started because hardware-assisted virtualization is disabled. Please enable hardware virtualization in the BIOS settings and try again."
I got on the phone with Acer Tech Support--yes, the guys who charge money for their services--and although they tried their best, the only solution they really gave me was to update my BIOS from version 1.00 to version 1.13. To no one's surprise, that didn't help.
My processor is an Intel Quad-Core Q9000, which according to both the Intel test utility I got through Microsoft and Securable, my processor supports this function. Securable even wanted to run a deep-level check and see what was preventing it from running, but for some reason it said it couldn't function properly in a 64-bit environment, so I'm still in the dark.
In my BIOS there appear the following options at the top of the screen: Information, Security, Boot, and Exit. That's it! No Advanced tab, and no options even remotely pertaining to the processor.
Is there any way to make what I hope are simply hidden Advanced BIOS options visible?
My Father has given me his Acer Aspire 5315. It is full of stuff i dont even need. It is quite slow aswell. I was just wondering is there a way i can delete all programs but keep Windows. I would like it so it exactly how it was in it came out of the box with all drivers installed. I only want to do this because i dont have a Windows Vista Disc or any Driver's for the laptop.
I want to run a Virtual PC . After googling I got some instruction. Some of the people suggest to change in bios. They suggested go to Bios-> Security -> System Security -> Enable virtual. But when I tried that. I didn't find the system security under Security. what should I do? How can I enable virtualization in my pc?
I forgot my administration windows log in password after a vacation. I have down loaded a free program called Ophcrack and had set my laptop to boot from a cd 1st but I just cannot get the laptop to boot from a cd. It just keeps booting up from the internal drive.
The cd is an image and is bootable on my desktop.
The notebook Model: HP ENVY m6 Notebook PC Product Number: C2N77UA#ABL BIOS Version: F.25 Processor Type: Intel(R) Core i7-3632QM CPU @ 2.20GHz OS: Windows 8.1
I did not make a password reset disk (I am learning it the hard way now!). I don't want to do a "System Recovery" because I do have quite a bit of data on it.
I realize there are paid windows password recovery tools out there but I would like to use this "free program" to try to crack it 1st.
How to set the bios properly so the notebook can be booted from a cd. I also did try to boot it up from an usb drive but the notebook kept booting from its internal drive.
I have enabled Virtualization through BIOS after updating it to v3 still the intel utility doesnt show virtualization is enabled:
Steps I have taken:
1.Disabled Virtualization in BIOS Result: Speccy and hwinfo64, 3rd party utilities show VT-x is available but disabled 2.Enabled Virtualization in BIOS Result: Speccy and hwinfo64, 3rd Party utilities show VT-x is not available 3. Repeated above steps after updating BIOS Result: Same problems

Ive recently had my laptop repaired after it got wet and the replaced the screen and everything,but since i have had it back the FN and brightness buttons do not work, nor does the brightness controls work via BIOS settings, also when the laptop goes into sleep mode or the lid is closed, the screen stays on bright white instead of going off.
i uninstalled acer empowering technology with the intention of reinstalling it afterwards. it had been laggy and closed spontaneously for a while, so i was going to download it again from acer support.
i got rid of all the components, went to the website, and downloaded it.
after installation completed it said something about WMIAcercheck.exe not working.
i tried to boot it up, and it said exception message: and then it said sorry! not an acer system.
however, my computer is clearly an acer system. it's an acer aspire 5100.
i neeeed acer empowering tech to hook up to the internet, it's extremely slow to do it another way.
how, when you press the "e" empowering technology button the toolbar pops up?
And when you switch on the bluetooth module, the WLAN switch, and even the FN+UpArrow and DownArrow and the little green text at the bottom of the screen comes up? Well, in my system it's not working anymore.
Last thing I remembered that happened was my Norton IS 2009 detected a virus and prompted to restart the system, and so I did, and then things started to go weird. For instance, the touchpad driver needed to be reinstalled, and then I could see that my startup items DRASTICALLY got reduced, looking at the task manager. I tried reinstalling the Empowering Technology Framework, but still it doesn't work. Any of you guys experienced issues like this?
