Seems your Unity interface is broken. Are you using any proprietary drivers? NVIDIA/ATI etc? Those seem to have a spitefull history with X and Unity...Anyways, try running the below:

dconf reset -f /org/compiz/ 
unity --reset-icons &disown

Am not sure I get what you mean by "When I opened my Laptop to check the answer, the desktop background was white". Is the unity launcher and icons displayed correctly but disappear when you open your web browser? –  charlie May 8 '13 at 7:22
