VT Support on C2D T5500 Mobile

Hey guys,

I just bought a used Dell Latitude D820, with a C2D T5500 Mobile for the CPU, with the latest BIOS. All indications were that the T5500 doesn't support VT, and I figured I would need to upgrade the CPU. On receiving it, I enabled Virtualization in the BIOS, and loaded up the Intel Processor Identification Tool. The tool then identified the CPU as supporting Virtualization!

Do I believe the tool? How can I properly test that this indeed is using VT when I use VMWare or Virtual PC?
