as per my laptop specs: Mobile Intel GM965 Express Chipset with integrated 3D graphics, featuring Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100 with up to 358/3845 MB of Intel Dynamic Video Memory Technology 4.0 (8 MB of dedicated system memory, up to 350/3765 MB of shared system memory), supporting Microsoft DirectX 9.

Unlike Windows, Ubuntu supports most hardware out of the box. You do not really need to install extra drivers. If Unity and other features works as expected, you have the correct hardware configuration. If it is not broken, there is no need to fix.

If your graphics card shows up as "Unknown" (what usually happens with on-board Intel cards, also happened with my GM45), open terminal, and enter the following command:

sudo apt-get install mesa-utils

Or install it from here via the Software Center:
