    Most of recent Acer laptop models support both Hyper-V and VT-x*, they are both enabled even if those options are hidden on BIOS.

    If your laptop has an Intel CPU, you can check if you CPU/system supports virtualization instructions, using Intel Processor Identification Utility:

    If your laptop has an AMD CPU, you can check if your CPU/system supports virtualisation instructions, using AMD Virtualization™ Technology and Microsoft® Hyper-V™ System Compatibility Check Utility
    http://download.amd.com/techdownloads/AMD-VwithRVI_Hyper-V_CompatibilityUtility.zip
     
    Devices using Windows 10 Home will need to upgrade home to Windows 10 Professional or Enterprise to use Hyper-V. Windows 10 requirements can be found here:
    https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/virtualization/hyperv_on_windows/quick_start/walkthrough_compatibility
     
    * If Hyper-V is ON, VT-x will not be available; Hyper-V must be OFF to have VT-x recognised by virtual machines.
     
    Turn OFF Hyper-V
    Open a Command prompt with administrative rights (Admin)
    type
    bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype off
    exit
     
    Reboot your OS
     
    or
     
    Go to Control Panel -> Programs -> Programs and Features -> click Turn Windows features on or off -> un-check Hyper-V -> click OK
     
    Turn ON Hyper-V
     
    Open a Command prompt with administrative rights (Admin)
    type
    bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype auto
    exit
     
    Reboot your OS
     
    or
     
    Go to Control Panel -> Programs -> Programs and Features -> click Turn Windows features on or off -> check Hyper-V -> click OK
