    I just got an HP h8-1237c, which has an i5-2320 processor. I thought it was a good move, but I need to run other copies of windows in VirtualBox, which I can do fine in my old ASUS i5 computer. This one tells me I can't because I can't enable VT-x, as there's no place on the bios to do this. HP tech support was not helpful at all, and I even had to define virtualization to the tech.

    Is there a way around this so I can install and run a 64 bit OS on this new PC, such as Windows 7, 64bit, or even 64 bit linux?

    Thanks for the guidance in advance.

    Look under the security settings in the BIOS.

    Sure enough, you were right, Oddba11, it was the last setting under the security menu. Thanks for the advice. Now I don't need to return the computer. :)
