It says so on Intel's website, but when I used Intel Processor ID Utility to check it, the report said no. And I couldn't use XP Mode in Windows 7 because "the hardware does not support virtualization tech." I know little about CPU, so my 2nd question is, can this be solved?

What brand and model of machine is this? – SirStan Aug 20 '09 at 13:50
it's HP dv6065ea – derrdji Aug 20 '09 at 14:06

That processor does support VT, so it is likely disabled in your BIOS. You should check your BIOS and enable VT there.

thank you, but how can I do that? – derrdji Aug 20 '09 at 13:49
This is a different model, but may have similar instructions. Poke around a bit, and you'll probably recognize something.… – Keck Sep 3 '09 at 14:15

According to the Intel Virtualization Technology List it does. You may however require a BIOS update from here to enable the extensions, as most Notebooks ship with this disabled and no option in the stock BIOS to enable it.
