Hi Shibaprasad,

Open SDK Manager in SDK manager window click on Launch Standalone SDK Manager.

in SDK standalone window scroll all the way to down.

Where you can find Inter x86 Emulator Accelerator (HXAM installer) .

Install that.

There are different AVDs, Those that use x86 and those that don't.

If you have  and Intel processor that supports HAXM then you can use the AVDs that use x86 system images.

Click the device you want to use in AVD manager and click the  edit icon.

   the second line down will confirm if the device is using an x86 system image.

If  you don't have and Intel processor you will need to clone the device and modify it so it has a non x86 system image.

If you do then here is my "canned" answer.

1. You need to have an Intel chip set that supports HAXM.

2. You have to turn it on in your BIOS

3. You need to download AND install HAXM in your SDK manager.

I found this link and followed instructions for installing using Studio >  Tools > Android> SDK Manager

Follow the video that Darren has posted.  If you still get an error, try uninstalling Avast Anti-Virus and following the same steps.

Hi Shibaprasad,

  I had the same thing, I sadly forgot the Youtube video that helped me to give him credit, but when you go to your AVD manager, hit create new virtual device. After that choose any Nexus phone you'd like. Then when you get to System Image and it goes over which Release name you'd like,  make sure which ever you pick on the ABI side has the "armeabi-v7a" It works better with people who have an AMD graphics card like me. When you finish selecting, you can name your phone something like TEST  so you can remember which phone will actually load.

Hope this helps!  :3
