1- were you using compiz before (in the gnome2 era) and was it in startup apps? if so, remove it from there, if you want cinnamon or gnome-shell you can't have compiz, that simple.
2- is your video card capable of handling 3D acceleration and are the drivers installed? without 3D acceleration you can't have cinnamon or gnome-shell.
