Try removing the config files, which will be replaced automatically - 
~/.kde/share/config/plasmarc and plasma-appletsrc.  With any luck a clean 
start is all you need.

The only other thing I can think of is whether there is a problem with your 
video card, in that KDE4 stresses some parts of video drivers that are not 
used in other or earlier desktops.  It might be useful, if the above doesn't 
work, to tell us which video card you are using.

New to KDE4? - get help from http://userbase.kde.org
Just found a cool new feature?  Add it to UserBase
