Error: Module ‘Monitor’ power on failed. Failed to start the virtual machine.

This post was originally published on this site

Hello,

 

Edit:

I did install Valorant before having the problem.

 

 

So I have been trying to create virtual machine with VMware workstation 15 pro and was not able to power it on.

 

Here is the message I get when i use “power on this virtual machine”:

This virtual machine failed to switch to 64 bit mode. This failure might be due to a lack of available memory on the host.

Module ‘Monitor’ power on failed.

Failed to start the virtual machine.

I am using:

– Ubuntu LTS 18.04 iso

 

My computer has:

– Windows 10 Education

– 16Gb RAM

– More than 100Gb of free space (hard disk)

– Motherboard: an asrock phantom

– CPU: amd ryzen 5 3600x

– Antivirus: Windows defender

 

I have tried:

– Rebooting

– Updating windows (normal updates)

– Keeping the default parameters while creating the vm

– Limiting the RAM to 250mb

– limiting the hard disk to 1Gb

– Checking that SVM and SMT are enabled for virtualization in the Bios

– Using VMware workstation Player 15, same issue

– Using virtualbox with the same configuration, it is working

– enabling/disablings Windows Hyper-V

– Disabling windows defender my firewalls

 

Here is my vmware.log file:
