I'm attempting to run an Android emulator from my Asus laptop, but I've run into some issues.

I intend on using Genymotion, but VirtualBox gives me this error.

" Failed to open a session for the virtual machine Android 6.0.0 tablet-phone.

VT-x is not available. (VERR_VMX_NO_VMX).

Result Code: NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005) Component: Console Interface: IConsole {8ab7c520-2442-4b66-8d74-4ff1e195d2b6} "

I've looked around a little bit but? I'm still lost. Not sure if it affects anything but I can't access VB's acceleration settings tab either, it's greyed out and unclickable.

Thank you in advance for any help!

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


take a look in the BIOS, Look for an option named “Intel Virtualization Technology,” “Intel VT-x,” “Virtualization Extensions,” “Vanderpool,” or something similar. Enable the option and select “Save and Exit” or the equivalent feature to save your settings changes and reboot your computer.
