I am getting an error in launching the AVD!
When i run the emulator i get the following error:

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!

And the required package Intel x86 emulator accelerator is already installed.
Please help!

Decrease the ram value in the avd by creating new virtual machine  choose phone next presd advanced  settings in last page and change ram into 512 mb and heap into 32 then next download haxm from intel and put the ram equals 2 gega

someone on stackoverflow had the same issue, the solution is posted to fix the problem however I have trouble following it.  Maybe you will be able to crack the code.

I had the same problem.
1. Go to the folder where Android Studio is installed.
2. and to  sdk\extras\intel\Hardware_Accelerated_Execution_Manager
3. and run the intelhaxm-android.exe file in this folder. 
4. after this program is installed it should work.

Perhaps you need to restart your system.
