Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

My ubuntu starts as normal but blackens gradually. For instance, when i point a icon, that region blackens, or when anything is opened, the region that is covered by that program gets blackened. In short, whatever i am trying to access gets under black colour. (I do not remember doing any mistakes shortly except tried to change the sharing of home-user ) let me say i am new to ubuntu.
