CPU-Z does not recognize the support of VT-x in Windows 10?


CPU-Z is a free software application that identifies hardware information about a computer system, including its processor, motherboard, memory, BIOS, operating system, and graphics. It is designed to be used by professional computer technicians and IT administrators who need to identify hardware information in order to troubleshoot hardware or software issues.

Description of Issue

A user reported that CPU-Z does not recognize the support of VT-x in Windows 10. The user had an Intel Core i7-6700K processor and Intel X99 chipset motherboard, both of which should be compatible with VT-x (virtualization technology). However, CPU-Z was not recognizing the support of VT-x in the system.

Steps Taken to Resolve Issue

In order to resolve this issue, the IT administrator should first check the BIOS settings. The BIOS should have an option to enable or disable VT-x. This option should be enabled in order to allow Windows 10 to utilize virtualization technology.

The next step is to ensure that the processor supports VT-x. This can be done by checking the processor’s datasheet. The datasheet should list the features supported by the processor, including virtualization technology.

If the processor does support VT-x, the IT administrator should then check the operating system. Windows 10 should be up to date and the Hyper-V feature should be enabled. Hyper-V is a virtualization technology that allows multiple operating systems to run on a single computer system.

Finally, if the issue is still not resolved, the IT administrator should check the motherboard manufacturer’s website for any available updates or patches that may address the issue.


In conclusion, if CPU-Z does not recognize the support of VT-x in Windows 10, the IT administrator should first check the BIOS settings, then ensure that the processor supports VT-x, and then check the operating system and the motherboard manufacturer’s website. If all of these steps are taken, the issue should be resolved.
