Intel Corei3,3GB RAM,320GB HDD,No Graphics card.

...does your laptop meet the needs of Gnome3? Just to make sure, post the output of LSHW here.

Maybe this readup would help...

Ehrm...the prase:

no graphics card
...somewhat puzzles me. Either it's a very old laptop (pre graphical days) or the graphics card that's in there (built-in) does not meet the requirements.

If it's a somewhat decent laptop, it'll have some graphical possibilities.

That's only possible by either expanding the laptop...if possible, or...not at all...
