AMD-V is disabled in the BIOS

  parthmodi 23:34 25 Aug 2018

Hi, I recently bought a new computer I installed Oracle VirtualBox and tried to start a VirtualMachine but ran into the following error:

AMD-V is disabled in the BIOS (or by the host OS) (VERRSVMDISABLED).

Result Code: E_FAIL (0x80004005) Component: ConsoleWrap Interface: IConsole {872da645-4a9b-1727-bee2-5585105b9eed}

I thought that this problem would be solved by going to the BIOS and enabling Virtualization. But when I went to the BIOS, I could not find the Virtualization option.

Please Help !!!

parthmodi, what's the model number of your CPU?

Thank you for your quick reply...

I have an Acer Aspire GX-281.

I have an Acer Aspire GX-281.

That's your computer's model number. For starters I wanted the model number for your CPU (AKA processor) to see if it's AMD-V enabled. You can find the CPU model number in Device Manager or you could try Bris's link.

I Googled your problem and found a couple of other users on the Acer community forum with the same problem. The advice was to update the BIOS to the latest version. Additionally you may need to "Load Default Settings" in the BIOS too.

The affected users didn't respond with any feedback but the advice given was sound.
