Hi Chai,

the AVD only opens up the virtual device manager. It only shows your virtual devices. If it is blank then you need to create a new virtual device setting. You could go through this video to see the setup http://teamtreehouse.com/library/build-an-android-app/getting-started-with-android/running-the-fun-facts-project

Once your virtual device is started, it is only a virtual device: a program that simulates a mobile device. Your app is not yet running.

Check you configurations before you run your app. (Run / Edit Configurations - general tab) I usually have the "Target Device" option set to "Show chooser dialog". This way you can choose the device you want each time you run your app.

So run it, choose your virtual device and wait for it to show up.
