Hi, When I am trying to launch any application from Oracle VM Virtualbox, I am seeing error "VT-x or AMD-v is not available". When I tried to search for this error, I found out that this occurs if virtualization is not enabled or not supported. Since this is no so old product, I believe this has support for virtualization but may be disabled. How to enable this ? How do I access the BIOS settings ? While powering on this laptop, I don't find any way by which I can enter the BIOS settings.. Please guide.

A:Enabling USB 2.0 in BIOS

John - I'm not familiar with your motherboard or BIOS, however my first suggestion would be to head over to the ASUS website (http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx) and download updated drivers. There's an update under the Utilities category called "Microsoft KB817900 USB fail to enter S3 patch file for Windows XP." Try that.

I would also make sure that your BIOS is the most recent version.

Let us know if that corrected the issue.

Hi Playbub
'input not supported' would normally indicate that either the resolution or the frequensy that you have set for the card are not supported by the monitor, you can check this by starting in safe mode or in vga mode, in these modes you computer will start with the ms default drivers and settings

I got an emachines computer last year, and it came with onboard video. I bought a PCI card, and it worked just fine. I was looking for an upgrade, so I got a new AGP card. The computer will not pick up the card (and yes, it has an AGP slot), and nowhere in the BIOS can you enable AGP. Looking for a new BIOS seems to lead me in circles from site to site...and I'm not really knowledgeable when it comes to messing with the BIOS.

Despite the warnings, I tried enabling RAID in BIOS (Intel chipset) and almost fried my Win 7 installation. So, I now believe for myself that the only way to enable RAID is to also reinstall Windows 7.

Does anyone know whether a data partition on the Windows boot drive would be affected?

Are there any clear advantages to RAID in a one-drive system? (I did not see a way to enable NCQ).

A:Enabling RAID in BIOS

I looked into old RAID technology because of the many problems it is giving with Win7 installations. It can require reformatting the drives with loss of data to set up RAID.

It also needs two drives to be RAID, I believe, as it is redundant array.

RAID is completely redundant IMO with drive imaging now even built into Windows 7. Best to set up modern AHCI config of your SATA controllers.

Just load the AHCI drivers from your mobo CD/Downloads page into the installer.

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

Are you able to access the Advanced Boot Options by pressing the F8 key at startup? It should list the following options:


Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt
Enable Boot Logging
Enable low-resolution video (640 x 480)
Last Known Good Configuration (advanced)
Directory Services Restore Mode
Debugging Mode
Disable automatic restart on system failure
Disable Driver Signature Enforcement
Start Windows Normally
I'd be inclined to go for Last Known Good Configuration first.

I just bought a refurb Dell XPS 420 w/ Q9300, running Vista Home Premium x64 and downloaded/installed an activated version of Win 7 Ult x64 on an 80GB SSD [Sata1] I bought for it; dual booted w/ Vista x64 on old hard drive [Sata0].

W7 x64 was running stable and instantly fast, I wanted to enable RAID0 on the old hard drive [Sata0] and another new hard drive [Sata2]

I entered Intel Maxtrix Storage Manager (Ctrl-I), creating a RAID0 volume on [Sata0] and [Sata2].

After reboot, it says "No boot device available" after BOIS screen.

My subsequent boot attempts include (roughly in order):
1. disable RAID0 volume, boot to [Sata1]
2. disable [Sata0] and [Sata2], boot to [Sata1]
3. disable [Sata1], boot to CD/DVD-drive (W7 install/boot)
4. disable CD/DVD-drive, boot to USB flash (W7 install/boot)

I have done some digging around and cannot seem to find a solution. I have the use of my notebook (w/ broken DVD burner, still reads) running Win7 Ult x86 so apparently I cannot make my USB flash drive x64 bootable from what I've read. I also have 2-USB hard drives (80/250GB) and an eSata 2x docking station available, but no eSata on notebook.

Hope I gave enough info for someone to come up with an easy fix. If I could boot to the W7 x64 install DVD that I made with the non-booting PC, I would have just done a clean install by now, but it refuses to boot to the CD/DVD drive.

It might as well be insert or F2 key that you have to press. The manual will help.

I really doubt th switch on the mobo thing. It would be ridiculous to force people to open up their computers (voiding the warranty) to change a BIOS setting.

A neat trick is to boot the computer without the keyboard to make the BIOS display an error message and tell you what key to press to get into setup.

Hi, We have a script using the HP BiOS Utility to change the vtx setting but we are currently experiencing problems. This script has been developped by a 3rd party and its been succesfully tested on multiple HP Models. In our environment, we are using the following HP workstations:HP Compaq 8100 Elite SFFHP Compaq 8200 Elite SFFHP Compaq Elite 8300 SFF By default, our BIOS doesn't have any password, the script will run the HP BIOS Utility with admin privilege, add a temporary password, enable the Vtx setting and remove the password. On the next reboot, we will run our software that needs vtx enable but the program will not see  that vtx is enable. If we enter the BIOS manually,  the Vtx setting will be enable, the only way that the software will recognize that vtx is enable is if we do another change to the BIOS and save that change.  It seems like Windows is not seeing the change that the BIOS utility did.  The intriging part is that on some machines, the script will work and the software will see the change. We have run the script numerous times, on multiple machines and on our different models but we can determine any patern and identify why it sometimes work. I was wondering if this is a known issue and if anyone already encoutered this. Thank you,

I ordered Thinkpad p70 with RAID 1 HDD's and planned on adding aftermarket m.2 drives (Toshiba OCZ RD400) to setup an m.2 SSD RAID 1 array... First machine they sent failed to recognize m.2 drives.  Now I have a replacement machine with BIOS version 2.08 that will recognize my m.2 drives without a problem, as long as the RAID option in the BIOS is disabled.  As soon as I enable it, it only recognizes the SATA drives and the m.2 drives disappear.  It's strange that when you select m.2 SSD RAID it will only recognize SATA attached drives and allow you to set up a "m.2 SSD" RAID volume with those drives... Very disappointed I can not setup a hardware RAID array with m.2 drives.  Even more disappointed with phone support... calling in is a nightmare where they just pass you back a forth between warranty (which only deals with hardware issues) and premium software support (which says they 'don't help with BIOS, only things inside Windows').   Seems like a BIOS bug or some kind of hardware whitelisting... Does anyone else have a similar issue? I'd appreciate any insight on the matter.

I just got an HP h8-1237c, which has an i5-2320 processor. I thought it was a good move, but I need to run other copies of windows in VirtualBox, which I can do fine in my old ASUS i5 computer. This one tells me I can't because I can't enable VT-x, as there's no place on the bios to do this. HP tech support was not helpful at all, and I even had to define virtualization to the tech.

Hello, I have recently purchased Precision 3510 laptops with the intention of using them for research on Intel's new Software Guard Extensions (SGX). These laptops come with the required CPUs that support these new CPU instructions and (we thought) the required BIOS support as well.
In the BIOS for the laptops, there is an option for enabling SGX, but when enabled we are not able to install any of the official Intel SDKs on Windows OR Linux. Additionally, we ran an SGX test program that would dynamically detect the SGX features using CPUID and Machine Specific Registers (MSRs). It successfully detected the SGX hardware support (i.e. the SGX instructions are physically on the CPU chip), but it showed that the BIOS flags controlling the startup of SGX were not enabled (possible SGX specific MSRs have not been set). The specific CPU flag that needs to be set is described here: https://github.com/ayeks/SGX-hardware . Here is a quote from that page that describes what is needed for SGX to work, "The CPU and the motherboard BIOS must support SGX. SGX is turned off by default and must enabled via MSR.IA32_Feature_Control.SGX_Enable. Only the BIOS can make changes to the IA32_Feature_Control".
For reference, we are using the latest BIOS version for our model - version A07. Also, the CPU we have is the Intel Core i5 - 6300HQ CPU @ 2.3GHz. 
I hope we can resolve this issue in a timely manner as we are not able to use these laptops for their intended purpose... Read more

Lenovo, it is much appreciated if you can provide an updated BIOS that allows the owner to enable/disable the hotkey function.The advantage is, that the owner can make a clean maiden Windows installation without 3rd party software, or use other operating systems such as Linux that lacks this feature of switching between the hotkey function and standard behavior for F1-F12 keys. Looking forward to this, as it gives me freedom of choice and it also is a key for buying Lenovo products future-wise. Thanks!

hello, 2 days ago my laptop was working fine but when i turned it on yesterday it would not load up all it would do is power on a blank screen and the caps lock would flash twice and stop and flash twice again. i looked it up and saw that it was a "bios" problem and to manually fix it was to hold down the windows + b key and turned it on and needles to say it didnt work. i even try to reset it by taking out the battery and holding down the power button to see if that'll help and nope. today i look online to see if theres a way i can fix it but so far all i see is to take it apart to look at the fan or some part near the fan. to be honest i don't feel comfortable taking apart my laptop at all  (i dont mind doing the programing and stuff though) and i was wondering if theres something else i can do to get this problem fixed asap.please help and thank you

i have a older hp pavilion ze 4200 and a while back my son tried to flash the bios and something was done wrong. now my laptop won't boot up or do anything, it just sits there.
is there a way and how can i flash the bios to be able to use this thing again. another issue is no floppy drive just a dvd/cd rom so I'm guessing it would have to be some kind of bootable cd or dvd. please help
thanks in advance

I can't figure out how to get into the bios of my HP Pavilion 500-314. When I boot the pc there is no screen that indicates what key I press to boot into bios, it just automatically goes into the HP loading screen.

A:How to boot up into the BIOS of HP Pavilion 500-314

Hi: Normally, you can tap the ESC key at the beginning of the HP splash screen to get a menu of options. From that list, select the F10 boot options menu. If that doesn't work, then see if you can get into the BIOS using the method described at the link below. Watch the video.  All brand PC's with W8.1 have this feature. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XZcYbxOcPV0 If that doesn't work, unfortunately, I don't have any other suggestions to offer.

Hi Guys-n-Gals
I have an HP Pavilion DV9500 Laptop
I have Ubuntu Linux on a Samsung HM500JJ 500Gb HDD in bay one, boots with
no problems at all.
I have Windows XP PRO SP3 preinstalled on a WD1600BEVS 160Gb hdd in bay two, drive not seen in BIOS so I do not have a choice to boot from it.
Ubuntu Linux still boots fine no problems.
Second HDD Win XP is seen by Ubuntu Linux and I can access folders on the drive
with no problems, so nothing wrong with drive or OS.
If I take out the drives and put the WD160 drive in bay one leaving the second bay empty it boots fine into Windows with no problems.
If I take out the WD drive and put it in bay two leaving bay one empty I get no boot, operating system not found.
If I take out the Samsung500 drive and put it in bay two leaving bay one empty I get no boot, operating system not found.
So either disk will boot fine when in drive bay one.
Neither disk will boot when in drive bay two.
If both drives are in both bays either way round the drive in the second bay will not show in the BIOS and will not boot
Question? How do I solve this problem, HP as usual are no help.
Thanks in anticipation of any help.

Tomorrow is an extension of today but yesterday is just a memory

Sounds like it is a mobo issue. "Bay 2" connection is bad.

Clarification, please! I've been told on this forum that I should upgrade the BIOS for my Pavilion g6-1d21dx to version F.48, which seems to be the latest one available on the product page. However, the BIOS currently on my machine is version F.49. Wouldn't F.49 be newer than F.48? Can anyone explain the discrepancy and tell me if there are any meaningful differences between the two BIOS versions?

Hi, i have this HP Pavilion DV5 laptop which is causing me some problems

I am currently testing two different hard drives with this laptop, and I can confirm that they are working fine.

When I turn the laptop on, the HP logo shows up a couple seconds later, and I have the option of entering the "startup menu". If i don't enter it, then it proceeds to a black screen around 5 seconds later. While this is happening, the hard drive light goes flashes on and off until the black screen. After that, the hard drive light does not flash any more. The computer is not able to boot properly, and it cannot start Windows.

However, if i enter the startup menu, than I can run diagnostics on the hard drive, and open BIOS.
The hard drive test passes easily, but it is not being recognized on BIOS. I neither can enable or disable the "notebook hard drive" because it is not contained in that list.

I should also add that these hard drives are working fine 100%, because i use them on different Laptops. (HP Pavilion DV4 and Acer Aspire One).

Please help with any suggestions.

Hi,
Have you installed an operating system on these hard drives? Operating systems can't be transferred and a fresh install is required if you move it from one computer to another. Have you tried booting from a live CD or flash drive?
