ENABLING VIRTUALIZATION on my laptop

I installed bluestacks android emulator and it says it will run slow since i don't have VIRUALIZATION ENABLED & directed me to INTEL'S WEBSITE TO DOWNLOAD A UTILITY THAT WOULD determine my cpu and give me instructions on how to enable virtualization. Intel says it no longer supports older CPU's, so it directed me HERE. Can someone please help me? My HP, HDX9000 Laptop is approx. 7 years old but works GREAT with windows 7 Ultimate on it. PLEASE HELP ME enable virtualization or find a workaround. THANK YOU in advance!

This is your processor:

https://ark.intel.com/products/29761/Intel-Core2-Duo-Processor-T7500-4M-Cache-2_20-GHz-800-MHz-FSB Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor T7500 (4M Cache, 2.20 GHz, 800 MHz FSB) Product Specifications

It supports Intel® Virtualization Technology (VT-x)

You will need to enter the BIOS on your laptop and check if it is enabled. If not, turn it on. If you see no such entry for virtualization, you must contact HP and ask why, as it is their BIOS.

Also, your laptop and processor are 12 years old. You may want to consider getting a new or newer laptop. And, while W7 is supported until 2020, you may want to get ahead of the curve and upgrade all now.
