How to get out of fallback mode..gnome 3

Hi friends, Due to my careless installation of video drivers for F15, gnome 3 crashed and fallback mode is running on my computer. I uninstalled the drivers but fedora doesnt get back into gnome 3 mode. It isn't in forced fallback mode. But in System Settings > System info > graphics > experience where it should be standard it shows fallback and I dont have an option to change that. Please let me know how to get back to gnome3 standard.

But yeah, its wierd seeing a 'solved' thread with no info on how it was solved....
