The substitution of the processor is sufficient.
Of course if you get a VT-x or AMD-v CPU enabled, you
will have the possibility to have the virtualization technology
Actually, even if I had the same problem on a Desktop PC, it
was sufficient to buy a new CPU with VT-x support.
The motherboard should be bought only if it doesn't support the
new CPU.

Note that, many laptops don't give the possibility to enable the VT-x
through the BIOS (like my case), even the CPU supports it. In this
case, there are alternative procedures to get it enabled! ;-)
