I've had my Y500 for a while, and recently minted it with a screen cracked beyond the boundaries of usability. My current solution is a VGA tether to a comically oversized tv on my desk, and I'm just fine with that as a temporary fix as I have no means at my disposal to replace it.
As a droid developer, I need to use HAXM for phone emulation, which requires me to enable virtualization in the BIOS. But I don't actually have visuals on anything until the operating system loads, so that's a bit tricky. There's two possibilities:
1) Can I get this television to work with my laptop outside the os? (this is totally wishful thinking, right?)
2) Could someone post pictures of their BIOS, screen by screen, prompt by prompt, on enabling vt-x? Or a key sequence for same.
I don't even know anyone who has a monitor, and the local libraries all use hdmi with their terminals, so I think a wonked out workaround like 2 is as good as it gets at the moment.

Edit: I've just read your post again and realized you have an Y500 not an Y700, so the following sequence is probably not accurate.
Assuming the option you want to toggle is Intel Virtual Technology, this is the sequence on my Y700-17ISK w/BIOS CDCN35WW.
Hope this helps. Note: this is on an i5 system, there could be more options if you have an i7 but I can't verify that. Good luck!
