I recently received a Digital Storm Laptop and I can not find where in the bios to turn on VT.  How is that done?

If your laptop supports it, there should be a option somewhere in the BIOS for it, did you check your BIOS?

ahhh, yeah.  I said I could not find where in the bios to set it.  If it is not there, then it would be a major/major/MAJOR oversight.  this is an Ivy Bridge 8320 so the chip definitely supports it.

The team just got back to me, they said VT-x is enabled by default. You may run the CPU-Z to check it.

OK, thank you.  I check CPU-Z and you are correct.  Had never used that before, cool.  My VMware Workstation was not recognizing the VT.  I have found the setting that will allow it to use the VT correctly.  Thank you.
