I found the solution to this. This is more of a HP bug, and they should really look into this.
Here is what happened to me:
When I got this laptop, at the begining, it asked me to create a user login and password. after that I had been using that from everything. When I went to the BIOS setting, it asked me to either login with guest user or same user as I do for the windows login. I used same user login as windows assuming that it's the super (Admin) user, however it's not the case!
You need to create password for admin user, and through admin, you can enable VT-X option. This is where HP bug comes into picure because to enable administrator account, at the beging of the BIOS login, YOU SHOULD select to login as guest user!!!!! yes guest user!!!! once you login, you should go to security section and set the Administrator's password. Apparently this is the procedure for enabling the Administrator account on these BIOSs. I don't think anyone would expect such procedure for enabling the Administrator on a machine (guest can only do it!!!)
For there, you are can change the setting and enable the VT-X option.
I hope it resolves everyone's problem
Best of Luck to you all

you are so true. It's very uncommon that a guest can administer login settings. So I never used guest and was confused that I cannot login to the BIOS.
But now I have changed security settings after logging in as guest and everything is working.
