Can't run a hello world program in Android Studio

I just installed the latest Android Studio to get started off with Android app development. I have 2 GB of RAM running in my 32-bit laptop. As soon as I try to run the basic hello world program, it gives me the following error message. I don't understand this. Do I have all the necessary packages installed or is there something missing? Please tell me I don't have to update any hardware.

emulator: WARNING: Requested RAM size of 1536MB is too large for your environment, and is reduced to 1152MB.
emulator: device fd:592
HAX is not working and emulator runs in emulation mode
emulator: The memory needed by this VM exceeds the driver limit.
Cannot set up guest memory 'pc.ram': Invalid argument

Well i think you have 3 options here

Number 1

Use Genymotion

Number 2

Start testing on a real android device

Number 3 (i like this more)

Edit the AVD that you are using and set the memory to 512 MB

will reducing to 800 mb help? If so? How do I do that?

First step

Window -> Android Virtual Device Manager

Second Step

Select your device and click Edit button in right part of window

Third Step

In Memory Options secton find RAM parameter and set it to 512. Click OK for saving option

Rerun the emulator and it should work.

Good luck
