Gazebo blank/black screen

Hi - Working with ros and trying to run gazebo but I am running in to a balck screen issue. first I run $ roscore . In a new terminal I run

$ rosrun gazebo_ros gazebo

gazebo opens but I just get a black or blank screen. In a new terminal I run

$ rostopic list

and all I get back is /rosout /rosout_agg. I'm following this book and I don't think this is suppose to happen; especially when I run the last command. the book says I should get this back

$ rostopic list

/gazebo/link_states /gazebo/model_states /gazebo/parameter_descriptions /gazebo/parameter_updates /gazebo/set_link_state /gazebo/set_model_state

I'm running a Virtual machine on a MSI Gaming laptop i7 processor, 16gb ram, and 1060 Nvidia graphics card. I wondering if its my graphics card that's the issue.
