    Can't find where to enable VT-x in BIOS

    When I try to download Android Studios this pops up:Click image for larger version.

    So when I went to the BIOS to enable it, there was no setting there for it. I am running Windows 10 on my Acer Aspire 5755G - 6823 with an Intel i5 - 2430M @2.4GHz. I even downloaded the Intel(R) Processor Identification Utility app and it says that it's supported on my device. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance!

    It's possible it has some other name on your BIOS, like "Virtualization Technology" or "Intel Virtualization Feature". It's usually under the CPU or maybe even Motherboard settings.

    I've looked multiple times and there aren't any settings about virtualization

    Hey prtzr23-

    Per a guy on YouTube, you might need to "Flash a modified BIOS to your Acer Aspire 5742G to unlock the options that enable Intel Virtualization Technology on the i5 Processor."

    This is only posted FYI, as it seems a bit risky. See HERE.

    The VT-x setting is in e.g. Virtualbox or whatever you're using. In VirtualBox it's under Settings, System, Acceleration... but will not be accessible until you enable Virtualisation technologies in your BIOS or UEFI
