It may be a problem with your drivers. Make sure they are all up to date.

A reinstall may also work.

You wouldn't be trying to play in software video mode would you?

If you start up ESF and go to the options menu, you should see a tab labeled "video".

Click on that tab, and under the title "renderer" you should see a box with something in it. If it says "software" it means you're trying to run in software video mode.

If that is the case, what you need to do is change that to opengl or d3d.

I suspect your new problem may be related to EVM.

So, I suggest you try a fresh reinstall without EVM.
Delete your entire ESF folder, download the full 1.2.3 installer, and install again.

For more information about EVM please refer to this sticky :
