Did you try to run a hypervisor first before posting?
Windows 10 Pro and Educational offers Hyper-V as the hypervisor for Windows 10, free of charge.

You can find it by doing the following:
- Right click the Windows button
- Select Programs and Features
- Select "Hyper-V"
- press OK

And there you have it.
Try to run it and see if you can make a VM run.
If you need basic info about how to make a VM run in Hyper-V, ask me here and I'll give you the few steps to quickly check.

Cheers

Chipset Vendor AMD
Chipset Model K15 IMC
Chipset Revision 00

I presume the Lenovo model number is H50-55. It may not be configurable in the BIOS (BIOS info is limited), but how did you determine that it isn't enabled? I checked all available documentation that I could find and nowhere is virtualization mentioned for that family PC.

Why update the BIOS? It clearly says that virtualization is supported:

HYPERVISOR - Hypervisor is present (a Windows 10 security requirement; otherwise you couldn't install it)
SVM * Supports AMD hardware-assisted virtualization (the system definitely supports it)
NP * Supports AMD nested page tables (SLAT) http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/GPU120AMDRVICPUsHyperVWin8.aspx

What issue are you running into?

I cant find option to enable (or disable ) virtualization in BIOS.

 
You can't because it makes no sense to offer it when a system is Windows 10 compatible; it always is required. If you could disable it, then the system wouldn't boot. That could cause totally useless support calls which can easily be avoided by not making the option visible or accessible.

But why it says that it is disabled in Speccy. And i cant use VirtualBox.

Do as Terrorsquad1990 suggested and try to install Hyper-V. Did you post the error that you got to VB support?

Hyper-V is one of the better software for making VM's :)
