[gnome] newb question, black screen

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Brand new to ubuntu and this forum. Got some great info already. I searched but it's hard to explain what I have. I'm assuming it's a setting I've messed up but I've tried everything. I'm normal when I run kde, but when I boot into gnome with effects this is what my compiz page looks like. Any help would be appreciated. Attached Images Screenshot at 2012-02-14 19:51:59.jpg (41.5 KB) (Hardware)
