Hi and when did the effects stop working, after a update or a upgrade?
Have you tried to enable the effects under system, preference, appearance, visual effects tab?

Hi and it would help to know the version of Ubuntu you are using. You may look under system, about Ubuntu.
For reseting your password this may help How to reset your password in Ubuntu (http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/resetpassword)
