Make Sure Ur System's 1Gb RAM is Free For Studio & Emulator

Don't download any third party emulators. You'll need to enable the ARM system image under SDK platforms > Android 6. Restart as admin and go to AVD manager> create virtual device, after you select hardware, make sure you select ARM as your system image. That error should be gone. This worked on Win7 64-bit.

if you are using the AMD, open your android studio, and click SDK manager > show package detail, and you just need to delete all the package that got name "Intel" in it by untick it and apply it, that solve my problem...
