Please ensure Intel HAXM is properly installed and usable.

This happened to me as well but I got a solution that worked for me. (Ripped off from a YouTube Comment).

THERE ARE 2 STEPS: 1st Step: -Go to Tools>Android>SDK Manager
-Scroll to the very bottom and ensure 'Intel x86 Emulator Accelerator (HAXM installer)' is installed (install it if it isn't by checking the box on the left and clicking 'Install package'

2nd Step: -Go to Tools>Android>AVD Manager -Click Create Virtual Device,
Choose Nexus 6 (don't know all of them that work but this definitely worked for me).
Click Next. -Click the top choice (Lollipop | 21 | armeabi-v7a | 5.0.1) (again, worked for me) -Click Finish. This solved my problem. Hopefully it helps you too!
