From the command line try to reconfigure the xserver. At the command input:sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

This should start a text based wizard. Answer questions that you can. If there are any you can't then go with the given default answer. If at first you don't succeed then try again.If all else fails choose VESA of the driver.

It can knock out your video card, and it this supports 3D, compiz. You may need to reinstall your video card and/or compiz.

One easier way of downloading installing the correct nvidia or ati video card in *buntu is to use the Envy script from http://albertomilone.com/wordpress/

Try running (Alt+F2)

compiz --replace
If it is not there you need to reinstall it.

I know the problem but I don't know the answer. Maybe someone else can help. Can it be maximised/minimised? What happens when you RIGHT click on it? Can it be closed?
