I just experienced this problem, here's what I had to do to fix it.

VT-x is Intel's Virtualisation Technology. It's not enabled by default on some systems, and needs to be enabled in the motherboard's BIOS. Each motherboard is different, but when you first turn on your PC some text should appear saying something along the lines of Press DEL or F2 to enter UEFI BIOS. You'll need to do this, and consult your motherboard's manual to find out where the setting for VT-x is located. For me it was called Intel Virtualisation Technology.

Beware! Changing settings in the BIOS without knowing what they do can and will brick your computer - so make sure you read the motherboard manual.
