You're going to have to tell us the error if you want help.

Assuming you have the required paid subscription, Red Hat can help you too: http://redhat.com

The error is suggesting that you use 32-bit Red Hat (i686) in your virtual machine.

It coiud be that you need to enable the hardware virtualisation features of your processor in BIOS. Virtualbox required hardware virtualisation to be present for 64 bit guests and some machines do not have it enabled by default.

If you need to enable hardware virtualisation you will need to go into the BIOS and enable it there. I have no idea what the BIOS setup looks like on your laptop though, but it looks like you get into it by pressing F2 as the computer is powering on.
