    Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad Cpu Q8300 @ 2.50GHz Does it Do HW Virtualization


      How can I tell if this CPU is capable of running Hardware Virtualization.  It is in a Dell Studio 540s with 6gb of memory and a 1tb hard drive.  The BIOS doesn't have an option to turn it on that I can see.  Dell was very vague about it.  I need to run vmware with some 64bit virtual machines inside and I'm coming to the conclusion this won't work.  It seems odd to me that such a powerful machine wouldn't have this feature.  Does anybody know if there might be a hidden option somewhere?   Thanks
