first thing you should do is a full system update .. you can do this via the updatemanager or by running the following commands in a terminal
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get upgrade
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
then when they've completed REBOOTING

Then I guess you should see if there are any proprietary drivers available by running Additional Drivers" from the menu.

Then install the restricted-extras packages to pull in the additional codecs etc:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras ubuntu-restricted-addons

Beyond those I'm not quite sure what you're asking ?
