Go to system > Admin > Restricted Driver Manager.
Enter your Admin password.

Two things might happen now either ubuntu will download the drivers it needs or it will provide you with a list of the drivers on your computer allowing you to choose one.

Enjoy your stay in ubuntu land.

How to Make Ubuntu Play MP3 Files


Because of licensing issues, Ubuntu is unable to play MP3s out of the box. We’ll show you how to play MP3s and other restricted file formats in about four mouse clicks.
The philosophy behind Ubuntu is that software should be free and accessible to all. Whether MP3 and other file formats are free is unclear in many countries, so Ubuntu does not include software to read these file formats by default.
musicplayer_001.png Fortunately, it does include a package that installs the most commonly used file formats all at once, including a Flash plugin for Firefox.
Note: These instructions are for Ubuntu 10.04. There are small differences for earlier versions of Ubuntu.
Play MP3 Files
Open the Ubuntu Software Center, found in the Applications menu.

Click on View and ensure that All Software is selected.
ubuntusoftwarecenter_001.png Type “restricted extras” into the search box at the top-right. Find the Ubuntu restricted extras package and click Install.
ubuntusoftwarecenter_002.png Enter your password when prompted.
authenticate_003.png Once the install is complete, close out of Ubuntu Software Center, and you’ll be able to play MP3 files! To confirm this, we’ll open up Rhythmbox, found in the Sound & Video section of the Applications menu.
sshot116.png Our test MP3 plays with no problems!
Note: If Rhythmbox tells you that MP3 plugins are not installed, close Rhythmbox and reopen it. You should not have to install anything extra through Rhythmbox.

Despite this extra step, playing the most common audio and video file formats – including Flash videos on the internet – is simple. All the software comes installed, you just have to teach them how to read your files.

No audio, video


pretty generic question, if that is even a question. So generic answer, find the model of your graphics card, and sound card by going to System Properties, in the Device Manager. System properties shortcut is holding down the Win key and pressing Pause/Break and releasing Win key on the keyboard. This is system properties, use the tabs at the top for Hardware, and go down to Device Manager. Anything with exclaimations means you need the driver installed.

It's a hell of a lot easier to just switch to a free operating system that finds the drivers you need for you, such as Linux. My favorite distribution is called Ubuntu, and the price is right, free. Just download, burn the image to DVD disc, reboot and follow installation instructions. Simple solution to M$ Windoze craziness monopoly game of computer business. Know your freedoms, switch to Linux.

When i go to the hardware drivers there is nothing there and it says at the top no driver in use


I have the Ubuntu installed on the machine , It does show NVIDIA driver installed in the list. I had to install the NVIDIA driver because of the UBUNTU installation didn't show the higher resolutions on my computer. I needed to download the NVIDIA driver installtion file from the internet and that made my computer work for better resolutions as my computer hardware supports.

What OS is the virtual machine running on? Also there is a flash bug that will not let go of the audio device until you have closed the browser. I assume that is not your problem, but it is aomething good to know anyway.
