How to enable Virtualization Technology (VT-X)

HP 2000 2209TU
Microsoft Windows 8 (64-bit)
Hey man I tried installing kali Linux on vm ware a couple of days back and it says

"This kernel requires an x86-64 CPU, but only detected an i686 CPU. Unable to boot – please use a kernel appropriate for your CPU".
I desperately want to use kali linux.
I tried to find but there was no option of enabling /disabling virtualization technology in the BIOS.
WHAT CAN I DO?

@lil_DK

 

Your specs indicate that your CPU does not support VT-x or VT-d.

 

What processor do you have???
