CPU acceleration status: HAX kernel module is not installed!

I have a problem with running emulator. I got message "CPU acceleration status: HAX kernel module is not installed!". I already installed Intel X86 emul. accelerator in SDK manager. And when I try to install XHAM in sdk/extras/intel folder I get message: "haxm cannot be installed because of disabled execute disable bit"

Can you please provide me instructions how to disable execute disable bit in BIOS, I can't find that feature. And what else I need to change ?

What about "Enable Data Execution Prevention "

I have Win 7 operating system installed on my computer ?

I appreciate your help...

Check in the BIOS>Advanced>CPU Configuration Look for the 'Execute Disable Bit'. If it's there, then enable it and save in BIOS. If it's not there, then perhaps you need a BIOS update.
