CPU Acceleration Status: HAX kernel module is not installed

I have installed the Intel X86 Emulator Accelerator. It is marked as installed in the SDK Manager. When I select PLAY button on AVD Manager, I get an error : 

"Cannot Launch AVD in emulator, Output: emulator ERROR: x86 emulation currently requires hardware acceleration!. Please ensure Intel HAXM is properly installed and usable.CPU Acceleration Status: HAX kernel module is not installed"

I Tried to install from the extras folder but I get an error saying - This computer meets the requirements of HAXM, but Intel Virtualization is not turned ON. HAXM cannot be installed until VT-x is enabled"
