Can't run Virtual Machine.

I've tried to set up a virtual machine for Windows XP, but get this error message: VirtualBox can't operate in VMX root mode. Please disable the KVM kernel extension, recompile your kernel and reboot(VERR_VMX_IN_VMX_ROOT_MODE).
Return code: NS_ERROR_FAILUR (0X80004005)
Component: Console
Card: IConsole {6375231a-c17c-464b-92cb-ae9e128d71c3}

I'm running Ubuntu 10.04, 64 bits on a DELL VOSTRO 1720.

The error message comes up for trying to run an empty VM.

I've being grateful if anybody could help me.
