/usr/bin/compiz.real (core) - Fatal: No manageable screens found on display :0.0

OK, so I have recently been playing with screenlets and got them all set up how I wanted when my sreen starts freaking out, the topedge started distorting and bending violently from side to side and the whole desktop sort of bounces up and down. I re-boot, still freaking. I boot into recovery mode and run xfix then boot. the freaking out stops but compiz no longer starts. When i try to run it from cli:-

gregg@kubuntu:~$ compiz

How do I sort this mess out??
