How to enable VT-X in HP Pavilion dv7-5090ef

Q: How to enable VT-X in HP Pavilion dv7-5090ef

Hello. I am trying to install 64-bit version of Ubuntu through Virtual Box, however, VT-X is required for the 64-bit support. Reading the documentation, it seems that the processor supports the VT-X, however, I can't find the option in the BIOS to enable this feature. How can I enable it the other way? Or is there an update to a BIOS that has this feature as an option?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I know this is an older laptop, but with the "Realtek PCIe GBE family" controller, I can see in Windows 10 that WOL is supported by this controller. In the BIOS however (firmware version F.66), there isn't a clear "Enable WOL" option. Does my notebook support WOL?

You can enable virtualization in the BIOS Configuration.Restart your computer and press "esc" or "f12" (not sure which one) to access to the BIOS.  Then on advanced options you may find the Virtualization preferences.

Could anyone tell me the advantages and disadvantages of disabling cache writing on the priming HDD? Thanks in advance

A:Cache Writing - Enable or not to enable?

I think the default setting is usually to enable it?

I have a dim understand of it from memory. As I recall, enabling it provides slightly faster performance but has a slight risk of data corruption in cases of a bad shutdown--like from a power outage. It can also have consequences when using RAID.

The geekiest thing to do is to enable it, but use a UPS (uninterruptible power supply) to eliminate the risk from power failure.

Me? I've always left it enabled and haven't knowingly suffered any negative consequences.

I've recently installed a wireless lan in my office. I have Roadrunner cable coming into their router which in turn is attached to a Linksys router. I have one desktop (Dell) running XP Pro hardwire to the router. I also have a laptop and another desktop connected via wireless. I've seen all over the place that you should not enable file sharing. So, how do you allow acces from one computer to another. I've set them all up on the same workgroup.....what am I missing? I've been able to send print from the wireless laptop to the printer attached to the wireless desktop. It's just the folders I'm having problems accessing.
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

A:To enable or not to enable (file sharing that is)

Where exactly have "I've seen all over the place that you should not enable file sharing".

If you don't that is fine. But then you can't share files. Just a choice to make.

With a router you should be reasonably protected.

A:will a HP Pavilion 15-n034sa motherboard fit into a HP Pavilion 15-n083sa ?

Actually that's a hard question, generally its not possible to install another motherboard, sometimes it is. In this case one is an AMD platform and the other is an Intel platform, there could be tons of differences in mounting holes, physical design, clearance, connectors, heat dissipation requirements, cooling systems, etc. Laptops are not like desktops that use more standardized designs.

You can't be too careful! I disabled DEP (temporarily, was my intention!) according to this advice online:

How to disable Data Execution Prevention
1. Step Open the command line: “Start” -> enter “cmd.exe” into search field and hit enter.
2. Step Simply run the following command to disable it:
bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx AlwaysOff
3. Step You can enable it again with:
bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx AlwaysOn

Disabling DEP as per above was straight forward, but having done my bit of troubleshooting, I wanted to re-enable it; but I can't. The 'Turn on DEP' boxes are greyed out and the above switch doesn't work, not even in Safe Mode.

Is it 'safe ' to leave things as they are? If not, how do I get DEP back? System Restore didn'r bring it back either!

Hey all, having an issue where my WNA3100 (Netgear) will not enable through the adapter settings.

I'm running windows 7 64bit, i have the latest driver downloaded and installed, the device is recognised by device manager as well as adapter settings and properties menu, and it is still unable to be Enabled, the option is simply greyed out.

I've tried restarting the computer with the adapter unplugged, uninstalling the driver software (Which, even without a connection, the computer updates it to the current driver instantly without consent) and even gone as far as removing my previous adapter driver and hardware from the computer completely.

I'm at a total loss. I have no clue what could be causing the system to recognise the adapter, update it, but will not enable it. Any help would be extremely appreciated.

A:WNA Will Not Enable

First, does your computer have a built-in wifi chip. If it does then your problem might be occurring because windows probably does not allow simultaneous use of two wifi devices (I've never tried that before so I don't know if it's true). If not, your device is probably damaged or you might have accidentally changed a setting that is keeping your adapter from being enabled. You can try rolling back the device driver. See if that works.

Hello guys,

Im using windows 7 ultimate 64bit, my laptop is ASUS K53E.

Lately i've been having some troubles with my laptop, so i asked ASUS support to help me. The instructions i got from them were:

2: Start pressing F9 upon start up
3: Select EMS enabled and press Enter
4: It will say; Windows is loading files
5: Select Next on the Asus Preload wizard
6: Select ?Recovery to the first partition only? and press Next and Finish
7: Click on OK to reboot the unit, once rebooted it will ask to setup the unit again

I've been trying to do that, but when I press F9 the only options i get are: WINDOWS 7 and MEMORY DIAGNOSTIC TOOL.

The question is: how do i enable EMS.

Thanks for any help.

i recently disabled the add on's on IE 8 but then realised i couldnt watch any media so have tried about 100 times to enable them again but every time i click "close" after enabling the add on's they go back to being disabled.

Not sure if this is relevant but on the left hand side where it shows "toolbars and extensions" there is a red kind of stop sign over the top of it.

If anyone has the answer i will be VERY grateful

Since you're using Vista, start by upgrading to IE9. Not having it indicates you haven't been downloading and installing Windows Updates which could be related to the problem.

how do i enable a program that i have downloaded to run on my pc


Hello Plaintalk, and welcome to Vista Forums.

Could you elaborate more on what you mean? I do not understand if you mean to install or ???

If you mean to install, the try right clicking on the file and click on Run as administrator.

If not, then you might try Compatibility Mode with it.

It's in your MB's BIOS. Just hit tab or delete before your OS loads at boot-up and the BIOS screen will come up. It's prolly under advanced chipset settings- just browse the options, that's where mine is. Save the setting and exit to OS.

Recently the yellow bar in IE says that IE add ons are disabled. In tools there is an entry to enable or disable add-ons but it is grayed out. I found another access to add-ons and they are all enabled. Since this has occured I can not play flash. I downloaded a new flash player but it still won't play and I get a pop-up on some websites telling me I must add flash in order to play animations or videos. I am not advanced enouhg to do complicated things in the registry. any ideas?

A:Cannot enable IE add-ons.

just download and use mozilla, 10X better and arguably safer and more secure type of browser (it runs and loads pages faster on my pc's too!) and the add-ons and skins are better and much easier to install, use and navigate.....

Often times uninstall and re-install of IE will work if you are dead set on IE, but i would never recommend using IE unless your are connecting to the MS Update site in which case you CANT use Mozilla. Are your Active X controls enabled and allowed for all sites etc.... this may have something to do with your problem. The more you troubleshoot the better you get, and the better chance you'll get the desired result. What kind of Anti-spyware/Anti-virus software do you use?? have you run a scan in a while, it could be a browser hijacker some kind of mal-ware, in which case using Mozilla would most likely solve the problem entirely.

Spycatcher express and AVG are both free and great utilities, they are the only two i use on my systems....

A:Cannot get 3rd monitor to enable

You might have to check the specs for supported resolutions very closely. I've seen some video cards where the maximum usable resolution shrinks the more monitors you use. It may be that your three monitors combined exceed the maximum resolution that card supports. If that is true you will have to lower the screen resolution on your first two monitors and then see if you can add the third.

Looks like you're gonna stay a virgin, cause that ain't no high-end video card you got there.

Now on to the real topic. I'm not quite sure what you are saying as regards enabling VGA mode. All you need to do is make sure you disable any onboard vga chip in the bios (because you are using an add-on video card), and that's it. Your PC should boot and video should eminate from your card. Pressing F8 during boot simply allows you to select 'safe mode', which is normally used when you are experiencing problems such as misbehaving drivers. You shouldn't need to do this at all normally.

I seem unable to enable .NET 3.5.1 through the windows features menu. I am able to enable it (check the box) and it goes through the process error free, but afterwards it is not available for use by any programs. It is also not detected by dotNETInspector. I have tried the .NET Framework repair tool with no success. Ran sfc /scannow in an elevated command prompt with no errors. I'm about at wit's end. Any suggestions would be wonderful.

A:Unable to enable .NET 3.5.1


You might want to wait to see if any other suggestions are posted before going ahead with this as I'm posting methods that have worked for me in the past but I'm not expert on .NET Framework.

You can download and run the cleanup tool to fully remove all versions of .NET Framework:

.NET Framework Cleanup Tool User's Guide - Aaron Stebner&#39;s WebLog - Site Home - MSDN Blogs

Read this first: Updated: what to do if other .NET Framework setup troubleshooting steps do not help - Aaron Stebner&#39;s WebLog - Site Home - MSDN Blogs

Disable windows updates or work offline when running the tool.

It will take some time and the method that I used was to remove versions one at a time starting with the highest version number - rebooting each time. Some programs that require .NET framework might stop working but not to worry.

After all versions are fully removed re-enable windows updates and let it take care of the .NET Framework installation. If you need more than one version it will install them in the correct order.

Or if you are 100% sure that you only need 3.5 you can download and install it.

You mention that you have XP on both drives. Do you mean to say that you can go into the BIOS and change the boot disk, and then boot from disk D:, i.e. are both drives bootable drives?

Where did you install the burner - drive C: (I would guess) or drive D: (not my guess)?

How is your XP OS configured for drive C: and drive D:?

When you go to Start->My Computer do you see:
Local Disk (C:\) <- \ prevents unwanted smiley from displaying, ignore it

It could be that the burner only works on the drive that it is installed upon.

When using hardware overlays (option in WMP9) to display video, the video plays at 1 fps. All other players (DIVX player, Realone) have the use of overlays enabled by default, therefore video plays at 1 fps in those players.

This problem happened last week after presumably deleting a system file. Before this the use of overlays worked perfectly. Which file?
