My Dell Laptop has Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor T6400 (2M Cache, 2.00 GHz, 800 MHz FSB) CPU which has no virtualization support.


Above link says :

Intel® Virtualization Technology (VT-x) ‡ no

My basic hello world Android application using eclipse not able to open AVD. I can not see device window opening.

is that CPU visualization problem ?

Thanks in advance

  • You can always try to use an ARM VM instead of an x86, because the error log you provided states that: x86 emulation currently requires hardware acceleration!. So try this and report back. Keep in mind that QEMU (used for ARM on x86) is very slow and eats CPU cycles like crazy.

While running AVD I got the error:

[2015-05-04 23:02:01 - TESTapplication] Launching a new emulator with Virtual Device 'TEST_5.1_5.1.1'
[2015-05-04 23:02:01 - Emulator] emulator: ERROR: x86 emulation currently requires hardware acceleration!
[2015-05-04 23:02:01 - Emulator] Please ensure Intel HAXM is properly installed and usable.
[2015-05-04 23:02:01 - Emulator] CPU acceleration status: HAX kernel module is not installed!

and I got the thread which talk about this error.


so Conclusion is my Intel Core to Duo T6400 CPU do not support hardware virtualization and will not be able to run AVD. I need to get new Laptop to get this CPU function and AVD running.
