How to download specific ubuntu drivers for my pc
This is my second day ever with Linux, and I had one heck of a time getting the nVidia drivers installed and working. Please, keep in mind I am very new and just starting out.
I currently have an ASUS P8Z68-V LE motherboard and I'm not sure if the drivers are installed. Where would I go to find that out? I am using Gnome as my UI. If I don't have the drivers installed, where would I go?
The ASUS site only gives me options to download for various Windows OS, DOS and "other" (in .ROM format).
Which should I take and how should I install? I'm mostly looking for audio drivers. A lot of music I play, either on YouTube or with VLC has a faint crackling in the background on Ubuntu, which gets much worse the higher I turn the volume up. Could this be something other than the drivers?
I doubt it's the hardware since the sound seems fine on Windows. I am currently running 12.04.
