When I click on show graphics I only get a black window. Any help on this would be great.

Which application was running the task you highlighted before pressing "Show graphics"?

Not all applications have a graphics part, especially not the GPU ones.

Do you have OpenGL video drivers installed?

You can check by GPU Caps Viewer

Meanwhile, I have checked that you don't have a GPU in ypur machine. So, try to answer BilBg's question.
