This question get's asked so often that people stop responding to it because if you search before you post you will find a similar post with a response.

Here is my "canned response"
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

@David - just a good practice , when ever you get into some issues try googling it, or at least for android you can search in this forum , 

i believe this HAMX is the most popular question in Andorid Community.

Hello guys, didn't want to start a new thread so i'll try here. I get these msgs when running emulator:

E:\Android\sdk\tools\emulator.exe -netdelay none -netspeed full -avd Nexus_5_API_23_x86
emulator: device fd:788
HAXM is not working and emulator runs in emulation mode
emulator: The memory needed by this AVD exceeds the max specified in your HAXM configuration.
emulator: AVD      RAM size = 1536 MB
emulator: HAXM max RAM size = 512 MB
emulator: You might want to adjust your AVD RAM size and/or HAXM configuration to run in fast virt mode.
emulator: warning: opening audio input failed
creating window 61 83 462 820
emulator: emulator window was out of view and was recentered
emulator: UpdateChecker: skipped version check

It takes sooo long to start. How can i configure my HAXM to get it working?
