Assuming you meant Core 2 Duo E4400 and GA-G41MT-S2P (rev. 1.3).

CPU support list - http://www.gigabyte.com/support-downloads/cpu-support-p...

GA-G41MT-S2P (rev. 1.3) ; manual - http://download.gigabyte.us/FileList/Manual/mb_manual_g...(s2p)_v1.3_e.pdf ; page 27 lists 'Virtualization Technology -> Enabled by Default.

Intel Core 2 Duo E4400 - http://ark.intel.com/products/29753/Intel-Core2-Duo-Pro...(2M-Cache-2_00-GHz-800-MHz-FSB)
Intel® Virtualization Technology (VT-x) - No

Most 64-bit Virtualization require VT-x support so right off you have an issue with your CPU.

VT-d CPU's http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_microprocess...

Example Intel Core 2 Duo Processor E6850 - http://ark.intel.com/products/30785/Intel-Core2-Duo-Pro...(4M-Cache-3_00-GHz-1333-MHz-FSB)

The 'problem' is finding an LGA 775 CPU much less one with VT-d support -- used/refurbish ; example http://www.microcenter.com/search/search_results.phtml?...
