What video card do you have? Have you installed Fedora video drivers?

Also disable Nepomuk and Strigi. You will find them in System Settings.

I had to shut off desktop affects, I have a Ati RV250 Mobility FireGL 9000 and the 'radeon' driver is not good enough for Desktop affects.
Fglrx doesn't have a driver for this chipset, and the Manuf. has discontinued the driver for it.
