i am new to Ubuntu. I did a freash install.The problem is after login screen there is nothing on desktop no sidebar no upper bar nothing. nothing comes up on right click or shortcut keys. i can only open Terminal by using Ctrl+alt+t. i have tried every thing i found on net but didn't helped. i re installed it 4 times and i am pretty sure i have done it right. but still having the same problem.i tried to run ISO on Virtual Box to check if its good and it ran good on VB. So any one can help me please ? i am using 'Evo N1000v' Compac. "ATI Mobility Radeon 7500, 64-bit video graphics with 32MB DDR SDRAM" is the Graphics card

Your problem should be related to the graphic card driver. Please update your answer with your graphic card model (you can use lspci | grep VGA) and the output of /usr/lib/nux/unity_support_test -p. –  Salem Apr 16 '13 at 19:56
current driver is same as my card model. –  Saifullah Apr 17 '13 at 7:10
if you can see the terminal perfectly, it might not be the vga driver –  cipricus Apr 17 '13 at 9:23
@user149844 and the output of /usr/lib/nux/unity_support_test -p? Are you using the fglrx driver or ati? –  Salem Apr 17 '13 at 10:15
when i did lspci | grep VGA, this shows up "01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI RV200 [Mobility Radeon 7500]" and i am using 'Evo N1000v' Compac and "ATI Mobility Radeon 7500" is the Graphics card. –  Saifullah Apr 17 '13 at 15:22
