For whatever reason you may need to enable hardware acceleration, in my case I needed to run an Android emulator within Visual Studio.
Simply access your BIOS (Settings -> Update and Security -> Recovery. Under the Advanced Startup section press ‘Restart Now’ and your pc will restart.
You will be presented with the BIOS UI, navigate to the Configuration section shown in the below image.
Simply check that Virtualization Technology e.g. (‘Intel Virtual Technology’ or ‘AMD-V virtualization’) is enabled. Next go to the final section ‘Exit’ as shown below and press ‘Exit Saving Changes’.
