Start the computer and press the specific key repeatedly, until you are redirected to the page dedicated to the BIOS setup. Typically, when you start your computer, this key is indicated at the bottom of the screen. 

If it does not appear, I can tell you that generally the most common keys are the following: F2, F4, F8, F12 and DEL (DEL).

Once in the BIOS, go to the section dedicated to your CPU. Generally the option to be enabled is found in the ” Advanced ” category.

Once in this category it is necessary to locate the item ” Intel Virtualization Technology ” and select the item ” Enabled ” from the drop-down menu.

Then save the changes by pressing F10 on the keyboard and OK to confirm them. Immediately after that the computer will restart and the VirtualBox will no longer give you problems.
