I have had the exact same problem. You need to enable virtualization in your BIOS. You do that by accessing your BIOS when starting up your pc and there you should find it. Hope this helps

He is right.  Unless you have it enabled in your computers Bios, then it will not work.   

I find it hard to believe that any computer that has been built in the last 7 years does not support virtualization at all.   If it does not.   then replacing it is very much worth doing.  Any engineer in the tech sector needs to virtualize

Yess you can continue the android tutorials. You just have to create a new virtual device but with armeabi

Don't forget there's always the option of a real device. Probably less expensive than a new system.
