Thanks for your reply.

HAXM is needed in a machine that runs on an Intel processor. Mine is an AMD Phenom processor for which you need to install Android Emulator Hypervisor Driver for AMD Processors, which is the equivalent of HAXM on AMD machines. However, for diagnosis, I already installed HAXM which can be seen in the screenshot of the SDK tools of my SDK Manager here. But that didn't yield to anything.

Regarding using x86 system image, that's what I tried multiple times but with no effect. While creating a virtual device, I tried selecting the default x86 image [Release Name: R, API Level: 30, ABI: x86, Target: Android 11.0 (Google APIs)] that is available in the "Recommended" tab of the System Image window. That produced no effect other than the black emulator screen. Assuming the emulator and image specs to be too high for my RAM/PC, I scaled it down by using the following two images from the "x86 Images" tab of the System Image window as you mentioned:
1. Release Name: Lollipop, API Level: 22, ABI: x86, Target: Android 5.1
2. Release Name: Lollipop, API Level: 21, ABI: x86, Target: Android 5.0

Both yielded the same black dead emulator screen.

I tried using other non-x86 arm and armeabi images, but to no avail. None could produce any activity on the emulator screen.

As more reading on the topic brought forward, I guess, in case of AMD processors, emulator is supported only by the Ryzen series and above. Any processor below it won't work. Android emulators are developed keeping in mind Intel processors primarily. So, I believe, the only safe bet to get rid of this problem and be future-proof is to update my hardware (processor, motherboard, RAM), specifically with a contemporary Intel processor. I don't see any other solution as of now. Although, any better advice is always welcome!
