I need some help here, I have a HP P6109UK and I need to activate the VT-x on it but can't find a way of doing it, can't see anything in the BIOS to check, I wan't to run Virtualbox on the PC, but it needs VT-x working to make it work. The CPU has VT-x available, just can't get at it.
Any ideas please?

The only things in Power are auto power off and processor XD feature.
can't find any thing anywhere to do with VT-x
BOIS version is 5.05 06/04/09
Core version 08.00.15
I'm on Windows 7, but when I was on Vista I updated the BIOS when a new one was available.
Anyone know where or how I can activate VT-x on my PC?

If your PC has an Eureka 3 motherboard then there do not appear to be any settings available that allow enabling/disabling VT-x in the Award BIOS.
The Benicia, Boston, NAPA and Narra5 motherboards had it in the Power Configuration or Power submenu. They were alternative motherboards for your PC model series.
