When I installed the drivers I was logged into Cinnamon & I saw the compiz effects were not working so I searched how to activate and used the command: "compiz --replace" and added it to my startup applications, that's when I rebooted and could not log into Cinnamon, so I logged into mate and compiz was activated. I saw that it was using alot of CPU so I have disabled it since. Could that be the problem?
added it to my startup applications
^^how?so I have disabled it since

Did you check ~/.config/autostart ?
grep compiz ~/.config/autostart/*
i'm not sure, the positive way of doing it is deleting the compiz.desktop.If I delete the compiz selection from my Startup Applications will it delete 'compiz.desktop'? Right now I have it unchecked.
