Hardware virtualization is a function either built into the processor or not. In your case, and mine (T6500), we lack it and the only solution is to replace the processor with one that does.

Being a laptop processor.. Id say the way to enable virtualization is to buy a new laptop that supports it.

I agree with rand_79. Might be cheaper to buy a new laptop. Laptop CPU's are not cheap.
