Compositing causing windows and menus to flicker non stop

So anytime I enable compositing, every window and menu just constantly flickers. I don't even know how to go about trying to figure out what's wrong... I was trying to set up transparency on my terminal window but before I even try to set that up, I enable compositing and then it all goes to crap. Any ideas on where to start? Also, kind of a newbie so use simple and very plainly explained terms. Thanks =]

Re: Compositing causing windows and menus to flicker non stop

New problem: My laptop has encountered a hardware problem. I know the source and the solution for the issue but I will not be able to do anything for the software until the hardware is fixed so I won't be back to this topic until then. Probably a couple weeks
