If Alt-F2 fails to bring up a run dialog, then your window manager has crashed. To fix this, bring up a nautilus window (use the menu button in the panel), navigate to /usr/bin, then double-cleck either metacity or compiz to execute.

If Alt-F2 brings up a run dialog, then a simple press of F11 should cure your problem
