    also my cpu is an amd athlon II dual core m300 with on board graphics because I'm using an old laptop
    I also have 4gbs of ram but, the info I have says that only 3.75gbs of ram is usable...

    onboard graphics is most likely the problem my uncles laptop would give me the same issue. I don't have a resolution to the problem but i can confirm its an issue with the onboard graphics as plenty of old pcs give me that same issue

    @LongDongSilver is most likely correct. As stated here : https://github.com/Aloshi/EmulationStation/issues/305 : "Your graphics card [probably] does not support the version of OpenGL EmulationStation needs."
