No special effects on the Fujitsu Amilo PI2515 laptop

i've fully installed ubuntu 7.10 on a Fujitsu Amilo PI2515 laptop and there's no special effects.
i have installed CCSM and tried all the optipons in the Appearance settings but they all come up with the message of DOOM! "Desktop efects could not be enabled"
is there somthing else i can try, because this laptop has a fairly good graphics card, it can run all the vista special effects smoothly as it comes with Home Premium as default.
but of course as vista is used more and more, the user comes to hate it, which is why i've gone for the best alternative.

hope someone can help?
