Given:

In[14]:=
Reduce[{x^2+x*y+y^2\[Equal]7,y\[Equal]2*Sqrt[7/3]}]

Out[14]=
y == 2*Sqrt[7/3] && x == -Sqrt[7/3]

that is your equations reduce to a single point, it should not
be surprising ImplicitPlot complains

Doing ImplicitPlot[x+y==2,{x,-4,4}] works fine here. Try doing
this in a fresh session after loading Graphics`ImplicitPlot`
