My guess is you don't have shaders turned on.  You can turn them on by going "view>preferences" and checking "use shaders".  But the environment map should show up when you render otherwise.

It sounds like your drivers don't support OpenGL or something of the sort.  You can try updating your drivers, but they may just not support it.  If so, you can view your environment maps by rendering the image.  You can do this quickly in object mode by going "Render>Render Image..."  It'll give you a quick render of the viewport without shadows or anything, so it should go quickly.
