Is there a workaround to the "... Disabling long mode..." message?

Is there a workaround for the following error. There is no BIOS option to enable Virtualization on my laptop.  

“virtualization is incompatible with long mode on this platform. Disabling long mode.  Without long mode the virtual machine will not be able to run 64-bit code. For more details see http://vmware.com/info?id=152.” 

I am trying to run TD 13.10, VMWare Player 4.0 on Win 7 SP1, 64-bit Intel Core 2 Duo. Both the VMWare and Intel compatibility processor check tool report that my processor is compatible with virtualization. But as I said, there is no virtualization option in the BIOS.

Thanks

Check with your laptop vendor's customer support.  Unless they have a BIOS update for virtualization support, you are out of luck.
