I am using AMD A6-6310 APU with Radeon R4 graphics, unfortunately it does not support Virtualization (AMD V), what should i replace Motherboard or processor?, and by which model, please suggest.
VT / VT-x / Hyper-V (as BIOS Options) are Intel versions of Virtualisation Technology.
If within BIOS you've enabled "Virtualisation" for the CPU, then it does mean that AMD-V (Hyper-V Compatible) support is enabled.
This however doesn't strictly speaking mean Virtualisation (Hyper-V) is actually enabled within Windows.
Now for Windows XP to 8.1,. go to Control Panel / Programs / Turn Windows Features On or Off
For Windows 10,. go to Settings / Home / About > System Info (right-hand) this then takes you to the Control Panel "About" Screen and you can follow the above to get to where you need to.
Find Hyper-V on that list, click the Checkbox and OK.
It will install the Virtualisation Support for Windows, then ask to Reboot.
This said,. I'm not 100% sure that Windows "Home" Editions have Hyper-V Support... so keep that in mind.
The A6-6310 processor is soldered to the motherboard and is not meant to be removed or replaced. You would need to check with the laptop manufacturer about compatible upgrades.
Oh, thanks for the info, i wasn't aware of these things.
That's a laptop, so your option is to buy a new laptop, unless that's being used in one of those very low end desktops which use mobile parts, in which your option is to...buy a new machine.
Your processor does support Virtualisation (AMD-V / Hyper-V) … all AMD Processors since K10 (2008) have.
It is however disabled by default in BIOS., this is true even for Ryzen.
Virtualisation has a limited / specialised usage that Typical Users will never require.
This actually makes me very curious as to why you want it, if you were unaware that your Hardware supported it.
In any case, just jump into your BIOS on boot (Delete / F1 are typical "BIOS" Buttons)… just keep tapping it on Boot until it shows the BIOS Screen.
The Option will likely be in a Menu called "CPU Features" or something similar. Enable it and you'll have Virtualisation Support.
Although be careful, as this can make your Operating System Unstable if it wasn't Installed while Virtualisation was Enabled.
Thanks for the reply. Actually i am not a tech person so i was not aware and moreover at that time i did not require virtualization technology, hence never went into much details when taking up the laptop. I am working as Medical transcriptionist, and in my company recently they have notified us to install Citrix desktop player and from next month will be using that, but the Citrix is not running in my laptop as its displaying a message that "Enable virtualization technology from bios", but when i checked in bios i found in Advance menu Virtualization option and it was enabled, but i could not find anything like AMC-V or VT or VT-x. When i asked my company tech person he said i should try to find VT or VT-x or hyper-V, SVM any such option but i could not find them either, then he simply said that my system is not supporting virtualization else the Citrix desktop player should have run.
Please suggest a financially feasible solution,
1. Can i get the whole CPU replaced from Dell service, because i am not in situation to get new laptop.
2. Which CPU ( Processor and motherboard ) would you suggest, please don't suggest higher end, i am looking for minimal budget oriented CPU either in intel or in AMD, which would support virtualization technology, VT or Vt-x or Hyper-V whatever.
Is it possible to get BIOS replaced or BIOS software update such that it displays the VT option.
Thanks Leyvin for the reply with such detail, now i am clear what virtualization is about.
I am using Window 7 Ultimate, and i went to Control panel/Programs/Turn Windows Features On or Off, but couldn't find any option of Hyper-V.
I guess had i purchased a Intel processor above i3 core 4th generation plus i would have definitely had this facility.
Thanks again Leyvin for letting me know in detail. It will be helpful when i go to get my next laptop, i will surely check before purchase all the details for sure.
