Question No Gnome !! No Gui !! Fedora 15 on my laptop!!

I installed fedora 15 on my laptop. Everything went fine during installtion then it comes to nice login screen when i logged on i couldn't see anything on da desktop rather than a blue wallpaper from fedora 15. means i didnt get any gui/gnome .. it was jst a blank wallpaper where i can only move my mouse but controls like left click or right click are not working. then i had to swtich to command line interface ,ctrl+alt+F2, i tried started from there itself using INIT 5 then again it comes to wallpaper screen and nothig happend. I tired startx also... but no use....m not even getting top bar.
But when i installed on VMware it was all there ... yeah VMware can't run Gnome 3. so might be it was using old version.
Now can you tell me how i can everything working. Like the top bar.icons...working wid GUI....n so... coz i dnt knw very much linux. so need kinda help regarding this.

I have nvidie 8400GS M in my laptop. Thanks A lot.
