I've installed and rebooted the laptop several times but it's the same. Basically I can't put on the extra effects saying "desktop effects could not be enabled" Under 9.10 it was fine..I've done no hardware modifications. I have 195.36.24 under current installed and 195.36.08 under settings installed..should I roll this back to the 180's or 170's? 
Have you tried using the "Hardware Drivers" Application (in the Ubuntu 
System Administration menu) to enable the driver for your video card?
