0 Ranjeet Kumar · October 8, 2015
I have just started to learn Android from the video series of "Android Apps Development Tutorial" and few  android developer forum but i am getting problem in launching AVD. In the video series when they are launching AVD then "Bucky Phone" AVD is coming as option, But when i am trying to launch AVD then this "Bucky Phone" is not coming as a option and "Nexus 5 API 23 x86 23 Google APIs x86 750 MB" is coming and when i am trying to launch it(Nexus 5 API 23 x86) then it is giving the following error : "Cannot launch AVD in emulator. Output: 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!"
Please help me, I am waiting your reply.

Here is a little more help.
1. Do you have Intel processors.?
If yes - check you bios to see if you can turn on the accelerator.
If no - I think I saw a work around on this form.
Search for the Public Service announcement about HAXM on this forum.

Here is a note on how I figured out how to do it with my intel laptop.
Found this link and followed instructions for installing using Studio > Tools > Android> SDK Manager
