    Hi, I need some quick help in enabling hardware virtualization on my laptop.
    My operating system is Windows 7 and I am using HP Pavilion DV6.
    For my uni course, I need to run Linux on Oracle VM Virtual Box, but in the process I got the following error message:

    After some googling, many sources told me that I needed to switch from "Disabled" to "Enabled" in my BIOS under "System Configuration" where it says "Virutalization Technology". However, I CANNOT EVEN FIND 'VIRTUALIZATION TECHNOLOGY' UNDER ANYWHERE. Here is what it looks like:


    I supposed the "SVM support" thing was something similar and I tried switching to "Enabled" and rebooting only to discover that it didn't do the right thing either.

    What do I need to do to get past the error message on the virtual machine?? This is pretty urgent.. any help is very much appreciated! Thank you in advance.

    Here is the main page of my BIOS Setup page to give you more information about the laptop that I am using:
