1. You need to have an Intel chip set that supports HAXM.
2. You have to turn it on in your BIOS
3. You need to download AND install it.

I found this link and followed instructions for installing using Studio >  Tools > Android> SDK Manager

It means you can not use the Intel HAXM accelerator.

You can still run the emulator. It just takes a VERY long time to boot. My desktop has an AMD processor.

The good news is you don't have to shut it down to run your app once it is up. You can make changes to your app and re run it.

There is a check box called "Use snapshot" that supposedly will save an binarry  image of your device and use that the next time you start the emulator..

I have a laptop with the Intel chip set so I do all my development there.

Search the forum for "public service". There is a post that talks about an alternative to  the Intel HAXM. I have not read it but the introduction indicates there is an alternative.

I too have the same situation. If I just wait, will the virtual device eventually work???

My error is:

Thanks, really helped me.

Eric,
Sorry I didn't realize you had a question.

If you are using one of the default devices AND the CPPU/ABI column has x86, then you are saying you have an Intel processor.

If all of the devices have this then you will need to:
1. Click Create Virtual Device or clone an existing device
2. Click next
3. If all of the system images are x86 then you are going to want to download one that isn't

When you create an new device using the AVD Manager you have a screen where you can check "Use Host GPU". If you do that you are asking to use an accelerator .

I hope this helps.
P.S.
I like your choice of a profile photo.
