Open the SDK Manager and download Intel x86 Emulator Accelerator (HAXM installer) .

Then go to your SDK directory (C:\users\username\AppData\Local\Android\sdk, generally).

 Go to extras > intel > Hardware_Accelerated_Execution_Manager and run the file named "intelhaxm-android.exe".

you might get an error like "Intel virtualization technology (vt,vt-x) is not enabled".  if this happens; do the next step below

Enable  Hardware Virtualization  in your BIOS.

else just restart the studio and try the avd.
